The Transformational Impact of Wireless WAN & 5G – Sponsored by Cradlepoint

Fall 2021

Organizations of all sizes are evaluating their operations to become more efficient, flexible, and drive business value.  This is at the same time the consumers of our services are demanding quicker service, convenience, and meet them where they are.  Wireless WAN is a technology that can bring an organization closer to this joint vision.  Adjusting the perception of what a network is and how it should be put assembled is broken with the cellular technologies like LTE and 5G.

Breaking the traditional concept of a corporate network gives organizations the freedom to innovate on their services.  Learn how this groundbreaking technology can open possibilities that were not available under the traditional wired environments.  See how one organization, Henley Enterprises, has embraced the Wireless WAN to move their organization forward.
