CAROL STREAM, Ill. – 4G. You have heard the “buzzword” everywhere you turn. But, do you know exactly what it might mean for M2M (machine-to-machine) technology and connected devices?
Well, the 2011 Connected World Conference is giving you the opportunity to find out. Connected World magazine announced today the participation of 4G Americas as an endorsing association for the 2011 event. 4G Americas will host a track to give attendees an overview of 3GPP mobile broadband technology, its global deployments, and why it is the leading technology for a connected world.
With sessions delving into HSPA+ and LTE advanced-network deployments, the 4G Americas-sponsored track will give the audience a look at 3GPP mobile broadband technology, the role it plays in the M2M ecosystem, and the effect of its scope, scale, and technology attributes on connected devices. Sessions will even address 4G certification and standards as well as the benefit to consumers and the enterprise. Kicking off the track will be 4G Americas President, Chris Pearson.

“4G Americas represents the 3GPP wireless technology family used in nearly 5 billion connections worldwide today,” says Chris Pearson, president of 4G Americas. “With the growing number of M2M connections, and an increasing number and variety of connected consumer devices and enterprise applications, the number of wireless subscriptions is expected to expand exponentially in the next decade.
