First Operator Summit of 2012 attracts over 65 attendees
Beaverton, OR – February 7th, 2012 –
WiMAX Buenos Aires, the first WiMAX Forum Operator Summit event for
2012, was a success. The event drew more than 65 attendees including 14
operators to discuss the opportunities for WiMAX in Latin America.
“WiMAX Buenos Aires was an excellent event,” said Paul Choiseul, CTO of IBW. “The presentations were highly instructive, not only on the state of the industry, but also on innovative new technologies and best practices that are sure to have a positive impact on most, if not all attendees. Beyond being an unparalleled educational event, the Buenos Aires Operator Summit allowed abundant time for networking and business development and I personally benefitted from exposure to innovative new products that will help me reduce my expansion costs and allow me to create new value added services.”
Attendees were treated to a full program including speakers from
WiMAX operators, equipment and solutions vendors, and WiMAX Forum
Working Group staff. The WiMAX Forum would like to extend a special
thank you to WiMAX Forum member GreenPacket for co-hosting the
well-attended post-event cocktail reception.
The WiMAX Forum would also like to extend a thank you to the
following member companies that contributed speakers to the program:
"WiMAX Buenos Aires was a fantastic event,” said Declan Byrne, Acting President of the WiMAX Forum. “The program covered a range of topics important to Latin American operators, and our speakers did a terrific job providing strong educational presentations. We are already looking forward to our next event in late March in Pakistan.”
