According to ABI Research, in-building wireless data traffic will grow at a double-digit rate over the next two years to reach 53 exabytes per month worldwide in 2020. With more than 80 percent of all traffic predicted to originate or terminate indoors, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and mobile equipment vendors remain poised to benefit from this traffic explosion. Meanwhile, Research and Markets reports 5G is on course to be the next game-changer in the global digital connectivity ecosystem, reaching a value of $251 billion by 2025. The main driver of 5G is the ever-increasing demand for an enhanced mobile internet experience, and the technology will address rising bandwidth requirements, demand for advanced application services and improved acceptance of the Internet of Things (IoT).

As the technology landscape undergoes a major transformation with the introduction of 5G and the proliferation of IoT systems and applications, the Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association (NEDAS) is working to prepare the wireless and wireline community by continuing to offer a platform for education and networking among industry professionals. In the interest of broadening the reach and influence of the association, NEDAS recently announced the appointment of Steve Yapsuga, Director of Sales – Eastern U.S. at Comba Telecom, as Co-Chair of the NEDAS Advisory Council. 

“I am excited for the opportunity to further serve the wireless community as the Co-Chair of NEDAS alongside Ilissa Miller,” said Mr. Yapsuga.  “NEDAS is experiencing incredible success and well-regarded as the open forum for discussion and the exchange of valuable ideas amongst my fellow esteemed peers. I look forward to leveraging my experience to drive continuous educational breakthroughs that meet the growing needs of our ever-changing industry.”
