Earlier this month, SWG, Inc. was proud to be a part of the latest WISPA event – WISPAMERICA 2018. This event’s goal was to bring WISPA members, internet service providers, industry experts, and the leading suppliers of wireless gear together for three days of education, inspiration, technology demos, and networking.
This year’s WISPAMERICA took place in Birmingham, Alabama and was one of the largest WISPA events of the year so far. SWG, Inc. was one of the 85 vendors that were invited to participate as an exhibitor. Members of our team met with some of our current clientele, while we were able to spread our knowledge of the wireless industry with new customers from around the globe.
Our experts spoke to both current and new customers about point-to-point and point-to-multipoint network needs and how they can improve their enterprises. We also focused on our new products and how their capabilities can improve network connections.
One of the newest products that SWG, Inc. announced was the Mimosa B24. This product breaks the barriers of price, size, performance and power efficiency in the less crowded, unlicensed 24 GHz band. The B24 delivers nearly a Gigabit of low latency IP traffic in a single direction. This product’s applications include:
- Fixed wireless broadband backhaul
- Business & MDU rooftop connections
- Campus building connections
- Video surveillance and Wi-Fi hotspot distribution
- Smart City connectivity
During the three-day WISPA event, there were multiple informational sessions in the fields of business, technical, marketing, financial, human resources, and infrastructure. There were four major points that the event focused on, which included technical training, business strategies, sales and marketing, and human resources.
Shane Grady, one of SWG, Inc.’s sales representatives who attended the event said: “The WISPA show is continuing to grow which means there are more WISPs learning about the organization and joining the shows to learn more and meet suppliers of equipment like ourselves.”
For those who are unaware, WISPA is the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association, and WISPs are the organization’s 800-plus wireless internet service providers. WISPA promotes the development, advancement, and unification of the wireless internet service provider industry.
