Join the CBRS Alliance at this year’s Association of Luxury Suite Directors (ALSD) Conference and Tradeshow, a constantly evolving feast of networking, education, and entertainment.

CBRS Alliance’s Alan Ewing, JMA Wireless’ Fernando Perez and American Tower’s Youssef Abdelilah will be presenting a session titled, “Enhancing Guest Experience through New Private Wireless Connectivity”. During the 40-minute session, they’ll explain how deploying a private LTE network using Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum and OnGo solutions can do just that. They will end the session providing insights into how successful deployments, including major league sports venues and entertainment centers are providing unparalleled experiences through enhanced connectivity. Entertainment and hospitability venue providers are continuously looking for ways to make all seat holders, from the front of the house to the last row, have an incredible experience. The advancements in Internet of Things, augmented reality/virtual reality, Point-of-Sale, and media solutions have opened endless possibilities, but can only come to life in sports stadiums, arenas, concert halls, theme parks, and convention centers if large-scale, reliable connectivity without interference can support them.
