About the Event

What is now, new and next in wireless technology

SCWS World is the definitive meeting place for the wireless ecosystem looking to evolve LTE, densify the network and deploy the latest wireless technologies. The programme provides an opportunity for real debate with the global stakeholders, ranging from high-level keynotes, interactive panel discussions, topic-focused roundtables, workshops, breakfast briefings, and intimate enterprise connectivity meetings. This year’s show will focus on business models and drivers for enterprise, network densification through small cell deployments, addressing spectrum requirements, and changing approaches to Wi-Fi, DAS and backhaul.
