Now that all 50 states, D.C. and three territories have opted-in to the network, the additional impact on smart cities, IoT and NG-911 can also be discussed. The presentations from Thaddeus Arroyo and Michael Poth are not to be missed. We are also very pleased to have Michael Maiorana provide us with additional industry insight during his keynote. We are looking forward to a terrific event.”
