Mobility Tech Conference & Expo Launches October 3-5, 2012 in Austin, Texas

TMC, Crossfire Media Once Again Join Forces to Expand their Successful 4GWE Conference, Focusing on 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi

Norwalk, CT – March 28, 2012 –
TMC and Crossfire Media today announced that Mobility Tech Conference & Expo will launch October 3-5, 2012 in Austin, Texas. Mobility Tech Conference & Expo represents an expansion of the popular 4GWE Conference and features individual educational tracks focused on 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi.

“Mobility is in the eye of the beholder,” said Carl Ford, co-founder of Crossfire Media. “Applications and devices are driving consumer choice, not the technology. Consumers don’t want calls they want connections. Mobility Tech Conference & Expo will explore how the Mobile Ecosystem, and the technologies that they deploy, adapt to the consumer’s desire for applications.”

Ford continued, “With the advent of Over the Top Services and Wi-Fi, the Carrier no longer finds itself as the sole network provider, even on their own devices. Mobility Tech Conference & Expo focuses on the trade-offs and the opportunities for carriers to distinguish themselves and provide services in this new age of mobility.”

Mobility Tech Conference & Expo will delve into how today’s powerful mobile Internet ecosystem expands the range of services and applications being delivered to businesses and consumers. Mobility Tech Conference & Expo focuses on how carriers, service providers, equipment manufacturers, vendors, and others will meet unprecedented demand for mobile broadband services. Conference sessions will explore how mobile Internet devices are going to connect wirelessly using any network available and how to balance 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi growth with existing alternatives.

Sessions in the 4G/LTE Track include:

  • Monetizing LTE Loading Telephone Enhancements
  • Using SMS for the SO
  • LTE and Roaming
  • The Spectrum Crisis
  • Reaching the Customer Small Cells
  • Social Media


Sessions in the 4GWE/LTE Track include:

  • Wi-Fi – the Universal Spectrum
  • Wi-Fi Speed and Standards
  • The Analysts Take on Wi-Fi
  • Hot spots and Carriers
  • LTE Meets Wi-Fi
  • Air Travel and Wi-Fi
  • Onload, Offload, and the Network


Attendees at Mobility Tech Conference & Expo will have an opportunity to hear from industry visionaries and thought leaders who understand how to monetize the mobile broadband network to seize market opportunities.

“We are excited to launch Mobility Tech Conference & Expo in Austin, Texas. Being a forward-thinking technology hub, we know this is the right place to launch a forward-thinking technology event,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman for ITEXPO, which is collocated with Mobility Tech in Austin.

Attendees will have a chance to participate in interactive panel sessions, network with peers, colleagues and business partners, and visit the 200+ exhibitor ITEXPO show floor.
