Introducing Next Generation Mobility

This article originally appeared in the Sept. 2011 issue of Next Gen Mobility

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Next Generation Mobility.

NGM is the industry’s new, definitive source for all things wireless – from the mobile endpoint to the Evolved Packet Core, and everything in between.

This new quarterly publication from TMC (News - Alert) will present and assess the most important developments in wireless as they relate to mobile communications in the business environment; key mobile applications in areas like health care and smart grid; wireless service providers’ network builds and service strategies; content delivery; ecosystems; spectrum; finance; and the packaging, pricing and go-to-market efforts around all of the above.

That said, whether you are a business owner, CTO or CIO working to formulate a strategy to leverage wireless to drive productivity or get a better handle on how to manage mobility on your network; a service provider seeking to keep up on the latest wireless developments in customer demand, new products and business strategy; an application developer aiming to keep abreast of end user and network operator needs and opportunities; or an equipment or services vendor, distributor or channel partner looking to learn more about technology buying trends and partnership possibilities, NGM has something for you.
