What is the Verizon focus for IBTUF-XI

IBTUF-XI 2017, “Overcoming Operational Challenges” - This year’s VZTUF preparations are underway and will include a significant format change. This year we are moving away from an in-building only focus to expand the internal audience; the working theme is “Overcoming Operational Challenges.” DAS training classes are being reduced significantly in scope and number to allow for classes focused on operational challenges such as “RF Fundamentals”, “Advanced PIM-Rooftop PIM identification and mitigation”, “PIM/VSWR Training- How to avoid costly analysis errors”, and “Interference Finding and Mitigation.” This is designed to provide a greater impact on our immediate business needs by communicating solutions to known problems in the network. General session discussions will also focus on our current operational challenges and emphasize success stories from around the country in the Small Cell and CRAN spaces. Invitations to speak are also being included with Exhibitor Invitations requesting ideas from interested parties. This will serve to identify unique vendor opportunities and will provide more depth to the General Session topics.
