Devicescape to Join Panel Discussion on Wi-Fi Integration at CCA Global Expo 2014

Panel Will Examine the Need for Complementary Wi-Fi for Mobile Operator Networks

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2014) - Devicescape today announced Chief Technology Officer Simon Wynn will participate in an exclusive panel during the FierceWireless Executive Breakfast at the Competitive Carriers Association Global Expo, March 25-28 in San Antonio. Devicescape will be joined by representatives from leading wireless companies including Sprint, Scratch Wireless, and Cincinnati Bell Wireless for a panel session moderated by FierceWireless Executive Editor Mike Dano titled "Wi-Fi Integration: Is It The Right Time?" on March 26 from 7:45 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. CDT.
