WCAI Partners with TMC, Crossfire Media to Produce 4GWE Conference & Expo

The 4G Wireless Evolution Conference & Expo (4GWE) Helps Carriers Transition to 4G and Increase Their Network and Backhaul Capacities

NORWALK, CT / WASHINGTON, DC – November 7, 2011 – The Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI), TMC and Crossfire Media today announced a partnership to address the issues associated with meeting the exploding demand for smartphone and wireless data services at the upcoming 4GWE Conference & Expo, scheduled to take place February 1-3, 2012, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.  4GWE will be co-located with ITEXPO East 2012 – the world's largest B2B communications and technology conference running since its launch in 1999.

As a co-producer in the event, WCAI will work with  Crossfire Media and TMC to develop content that will help carriers meet the exploding mobile broadband demand and transition to 4G and the next generation of LTE. At 4GWE, WCAI will host several conference sessions addressing new 4G spectrum, wireless backhaul for 4G networks, Wi-Fi for data offload and other issues related to enhancing network coverage. The full conference agenda is now available.

“We are excited to have the WCAI team working with us and joining in these very important discussions,” said event producer Carl Ford of Crossfire Media. “Many of WCAI’s carrier members are facing the daunting questions of how to migrate to 4G economically and efficiently, as the demand for data consumes the network resources. These are key issues that we will be addressing at 4GWE in Miami.”

“Our partnership with the 4GWE Conference & Expo gives our members an opportunity to interact with the entire ecosystem,” said WCAI President and CEO Fred Campbell. “4GWE is the perfect place for wireless service providers to find the right path to 4G.”

Registration for 4GWE is now open. Sponsorship, branding and advertising opportunities are also available, and interested parties should contact Matthew Gleeson at 203.852.6800 ext. 145 at TMC or Leigh Ann Spellman at 202.607.8186 at WCAI. Members of the media can reserve media credentials by contacting Todd Keefe at For Immediate Release PR.
