I’m in the midst of multiple co-located conferences, Super Wi-Fi Summit, 4G Wireless Evolution, IT Expo, all conveniently located in Miami, although I barely got here on Tuesday just ahead of a major storm in Boston.
At the Super Wi-Fi Summit, I gave a presentation about netBlazr. This conference is focused on technologies for use in the newly available TV White Spaces spectrum, particularly Wi-Fi (802.11af). I told Carl Ford (the conference organizer) that netBlazr was using 5 GHz 802.11n, not TVWS, but he still wanted me to present the netBlazr story.
Then, in the 4G Wireless Evolution Conference, Carl had asked me to give some perspective on when Over-the-Top applications will conquer all. With all my attention focused on netBlazr, that was a little off topic, but I have views and opinions which I put together in this presentation.
Aside from my two presentations, I’ve met a lot of old friends and met several useful contacts for the future. I’ve also met a number of wireless ISPs, both through the Super Wi-Fi Summit and through the WISPA booth on the show floor. All in all, well worth the trip!
