Boingo VP Doug Lodder participated in the panel, Matching the Right Mobile Technology to the Right Venue, at the 2014 ACUTA Winter Seminar. Moderated by Tracy Ford, Director at the HetNet Forum, the panel addressed how higher education institutions are collaborating with wireless service providers to satisfy demand from students, faculty and staff for consistent wireless and mobile coverage and capacity across campus environments. The panel covered how wireless service providers are using a variety of technologies, including distributed antenna systems (DAS), other small cells, and Wi-Fi to handle increased traffic on the network.
