19_LTE_PhoneThe concept of private LTE networks has been discussed for the past several years; however, with CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio System) finally a reality, the topic is top of mind for many enterprise IT executives.

CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope's Kris Kozamchak previews the Private LTE for Enterprise event and offers you a special promotion you can't miss.

CBRS promises enhanced mobility and range, greater capacity, optimized applications (especially for specific industries), interoperability and new devices. Even with these great advancements, one nagging question remains, “What benefit is a private LTE network to my business?”

To answer that question, iGR teamed up with SmartGig Media to host a series of events, “Private LTE for Enterprise,” with the first one kicking off on November 6 in Dallas, Texas. This one-day program details the history of private LTE, the unique nature of OnGo and CBRS technology, how spectrum sharing platforms can work for you and more. Readers of this blog have an opportunity to attend the event for free – keep reading!

I discussed the event with Iain Gillott, founder of iGR, and he said, “Private LTE networks are game-changing technologies that provide maximum mobile coverage and ubiquitous connectivity – inside buildings, in high-traffic venues (i.e., stadiums, theaters) and in in high RF environments such as hospitals, corporate and educational campus facilities.”

CommScope, a Foundation Sponsor of the event, will speak on “The Business Case for Hospital and Healthcare facilities” as well as answering questions on a “Ask the Experts” panel. In addition, Commscope will be hosting a private meeting and demo room to discuss specific enterprise needs and requirements.

As a special promotion for the event, the first 100 registrations will receive a free Enterprise & CRE Executive Badge or Government & Non-Profit Badge - go to the registration page for the event and use the PROMO CODE ‘VIP’.

This is a great opportunity for any enterprise IT executive to gain a comprehensive understanding of the private LTE network opportunity.
