4G Wireless Evolution Expected to be the Top Online Resource and Leading Live Event Covering the Next Generation of Wireless Technologies
Norwalk, CT, (October 30, 2008) — Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®
) today announced a partnership with Crossfire Media (CFM) to form 4G Wireless Evolution
, the most complete resource of Web sites, events, and other media dedicated to providing information on the next generation of wireless technologies.
The partnership will help address a growing need for information regarding the next generation of wireless, and will feature two new products – a new 4G Wireless Evolution Web site and a 4G Wireless Evolution Conference & Expo.
4G is the fourth generation of wireless communications, which is expected to be implemented globally in the next 2 - 5 years, and which will offer significantly faster speeds and broader applications than current wireless networks can allow. The result will be an influx of new technologies and a significant increase in the number of customers using wireless communications for a wide variety of uses.
“With the current 3G networks, we have already seen a tremendous number of new applications and technologies, along with a huge increase in the number of consumers using these applications – but that is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC (News
) President. “With the onset of 4G we are anticipating new and revolutionary technologies and uses of wireless communications that will have wide reaching impacts on our lives. And as a result, there is a definite hunger for information and a need for networking among individuals and companies working to find the solutions to make the next great wireless technologies. We are confident that the 4G Wireless Evolution family of sites and events fills that need.”
“With the cellular industry being saturated, gaining market share will require technological changes that match the communication needs of tomorrow”, said Carl Ford (News
), Crossfire Media VP. “The opportunity goes beyond the choice of a phone. Right now the consumers are buying smart phones to reach web 2.0 applications, but new wireless networks present opportunities to integrate computing, communication and social networking solutions into our daily lives with a variety of rich media enabled devices”.
