Smartphones, watches, tablets and the Internet of Things are gobbling up data faster than wireless carriers can supply it -- especially indoors -- and demand is increasing exponentially. 5G, licensed and unlicensed spectrum seem to hold the keys to the wireless data future inside buildings, but there are still numerous questions on how commercial building owners can leverage and connect with these technologies for their tenants’ benefit.  Additionally, we are hearing rumblings of the government auctioning off air space to large corporations in the near future with billions of dollars at stake.  Join Verizon Wireless network executive Frank Cairon, Airwavz Board Member Stuart Hicks, and Airwavz Co-Founder Mark Horinko, as they discuss and provide insights on this important topic.
