MAMARONECK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 21, 2017) - The Northeast DAS and Small Cell Association (NEDAS), an association of in-building wireless solution providers including Distributed Antenna System (DAS), Small Cell professionals, Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) solutions and end-users throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, and iMiller Public Relations (iMPR), a results-driven, independent public relations and content marketing consulting firm, are proud to announce the keynote speaker at NEDAS' fifth annual New York City Summit taking place April 20, 2017 at the New York Academy of Medicine in Manhattan.

The theme of the NEDAS NYC summit is "2017: The Year IoT Demands Infrastructure to be Reshaped Above and Below the Ground." Colby Synesael, managing director and senior research analyst at Cowen Group, Inc., who specializes in the communications infrastructure and telecom services industries, will be the event's keynote speaker. Mr. Synesael is uniquely positioned to discuss how 5G will shape the industry in 2017 and the coming years.

According Mr. Synesael's recent publication, "Surveying the 5G Landscape: A Sector View of What's to Come," the best way to play 5G is to invest in companies that will help facilitate the network buildouts. Attendees to NEDAS NYC will learn first-hand about this research and how it is likely to affect their businesses.

"We are very excited to have Colby speak at our New York City summit," states Ilissa Miller, president of NEDAS and founder and CEO of iMiller Public Relations. "He has extensive experience and a profound understanding of the wireline and wireless infrastructure needs of the global telecom landscape. The wealth of information Colby can offer to our attendees is expected to be well received by the NEDAS community."

"I'm quite pleased that NEDAS approached me to participate in its event," comments Mr. Synesael. "5G mobile networks will significantly affect both the wireless and wireline sectors of the global network infrastructure, and the opportunities and challenges this presents to the marketplace as surveyed in my recent report will be of great interest to NEDAS attendees."
