2)      Networking, public outreach, and education about the DAS + Small Cell industry.

The new advisory council is a volunteer body consisting of industry thought leaders committed to sharing education, ideas and insights that will enhance and cultivate the technology and related strategies that impact the wireless industry.   The advisory council members include Ezra Hug, founder of NEDAS and now representing AT&T Wireless, Ahmed Abogendia of ATEC Wireless, Clint Heiden of EdgeConneX, Nathalie Robitaille of iBwave, Prasad Ravi of INOC, Walter Cannon of Metro Network Services, Ken Wedholm of STEALTH®, Doug Fishman of SQUAN, and Steve Yapsuga of Tessco.   The President of NEDAS is Ilissa Miller, CEO of iMiller Public Relations, who is committed to the organizations’ original intent and mission.
