Mobile giant Vodafone has joined the upcoming Small Cells World Summit in London from 26-28 June as Lead Operator. Organised by Avren Events in exclusive partnership with the Small Cell Forum, the event brings together the most important industry pioneers and experts at the largest exhibition in the small cell industry.
“We are pleased to once again confirm Vodafone’s participation in the Small Cells World Summit as one of the market leading mobile network operators, dedicated to furthering small cell development” says event director Alejandro Pinero.
“Following their launch of the Vodafone SureSignal service at the Femtocells World Summit 2009, Vodafone has always been a key participant in the femtocell, and now small cell series of events.”
The Small Cells World Summit’s Alejandro Pinero notes. “we are bringing together some of the biggest names in the smalls cells market, including Symmetricom and NEC, with nearly 60 expert speakers in two tracks, 30+ exhibiting companies from throughout the ecosystem and an unprecedented series of announcements and activities all occurring during the conference.”
“it’s an exciting time for the small cell ecosystem, and it’s uniquely positioned to solve the challenge of delivering mobile broadband services to end users in residential, enterprise and metro environments”, said Manish Gupta, Symmetricom’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
Anil Kohli, General Manager, NEC Europe Ltd said, “Always think about the total cost of ownership when considering small cells, whether you are an operator or a vendor. Sometimes people don’t see the bigger picture where small cells offer savings, cost benefits, and other advantages beyond the obvious. Those that do are the most successful.”
Other operators who will be there include Telecom Italia, Sunrise, SoftBank, Verizon, SK telecom, Orange, T-Mobile, and Everything Everywhere. Other global technology giants who will share their latest solutions are Cisco, Qualcomm, Radisys, Intel, Ubiquisys, Alcatel-Lucent, Broadcom, ip.access, Ablaze Wireless and Texas Instruments, to name a few.
