Heroes extend connectivity to solve problems. Connectivity is of no value when it is not available. While the technology exists, leaders need to see the gaps, develop a plan to solve the connectivity challenge, and collaborate with others to implement the solution. Great leaders make this process smooth for all parties involved – and they are frequently called upon to “do it again.”
This quarter, both of our heroes led teams to extend Wi-Fi coverage with fixed wireless infrastructure. Whether Wi-Fi is needed for residential applications in multi-dwelling units (MDU) or providing coverage in the center of a major city, fixed wireless connectivity is an efficient solution to provide the coverage and capacity exactly where it is needed.
Please take a moment to nominate an individual or company who is making a difference with wireless connectivity in your area.
