She is responsible for outreach to important DAS target markets and organizes HetNet Forum conference programming. Tracy Ford has spent more than two decades covering the rapidly changing wireless industry, tracking its changes as it grew from a voice-centric marketplace to the dynamic data-intensive industry it is today. She started her technology journalism career at RCR Wireless News, and has held a number of titles there, including associate publisher and executive editor. A graduate of the Minnesota State University-Moorhead, she holds a B.S. degree in Mass Communications.

A heterogeneous network (HetNet) combines distributed antenna system (DAS) solutions, small-cell technologies and WiFi infrastructure to enable wireless broadband coverage and capacity. All these technologies are supported by a fiber-optic network – a HetNet is where the wireline meets the wireless.

In this quickly evolving industry, determining which technology is best suited to deliver bandwidth and an awesome user experience in a specific environment can be confusing.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The difference between DAS, small-cell and HetNet
  • How to correctly match the technology with the appropriate landscape
  • The optical infrastructure behind wireless networks
  • The best practices for a reliable and powerful optical backhaul
