VP of Product & Strategy to speak on 5G and the Digital Divide; Extenet Proudly Sponsoring Exclusive VIP Lounge
Mobile World Congress (MWC) Las Vegas, hailed as the mobile industry’s most influential connectivity event in the United States, is coming to the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center on September 28-30. The sister to MWC Barcelona, MWC Las Vegas will fill 600,000 sq. feet of exhibition space and host 50+ hours of curated events for attendees. The event will feature more than 200 expert speakers, 300 unique exhibitors and a wealth of industry leaders and decision-makers from diverse verticals. Extenet – a leading national provider of private wireless and fiber infrastructure, will be there too and looks forward to booking meetings with current and future MNO partners and clients to address outdoor, community-based, and enterprise solutions for the hospitality industry, sports and entertainment venues, hospital systems, data centers and more.
Extenet’s Jay Floyd, VP of Product & Strategy, will be discussing the potential 5G has in solving the digital divide. On Wednesday, September 28 from 1:30 – 2:30pm PST, Jay will join “Unlocking 5G for Meaningful Connectivity,” a panel with Bob Everson, Sr. Director of 5G Architecture (Cisco); Jeff Bratcher, CTO (FirstNet); Lory Thorpe, Global Solutions & Offerings – Telecommunications (IBM); Mayuko Tatewaki, SVP (NEC); and Narothum Saxena, VP. Technology Strategy & Architecture (US Cellular).
Extenet is also hosting an exclusive VIP lounge with a meeting room and speaker lounge on Level 3 – W310 of the Convention Center for MWC Gold Pass holders. Access is also available to those who have a pre-arranged meeting with Extenet.
Extenet is a major provider of fiber along the Las Vegas Strip. As the city grows with more highly attended, in-person events, Extenet has already secured deals to provide future-ready network solutions in more than 10 prime sports and entertainment venues. During an interview about the company’s move to Frisco, TX, CEO Rich Coyle recently spoke about Extenet being chosen to design, build and operate the country’s largest in-building access network throughout all MGM resorts nationwide, many of which are in Las Vegas.
