The Manager of Business Development, LightSquared, Eric Moore, speaks to Advanced Security and CATA's 3rd Annual First Responder Vendor Opportunity Forum (VOF)
Please view this video of Eric Moore, Manager, LightSquared as he talks about the benefits of participation in the CATA 3rd Annual First Responder Vendor Opportunity Forum (VOF) recently completed in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
First truly open, wholesale-only network
LightSquared is building the only national 4G-LTE open wireless broadband network that incorporates nationwide satellite coverage and offers the capacity to support the explosive demand generated by new consumer devices and mobile applications. Through its wholesale-only business model, those without their own wireless network or who have limited geographic coverage or spectrum can market and sell their own products using the LightSquared network-at a competitive price and without retail competition from LightSquared. Convenient connectivity for all.
LightSquared enables manufacturers and retailers to provide a one-box solution for consumers, while creating new customer relationships and ongoing revenue streams for themselves. Because it is a completely open network, partners can develop their own devices, applications, and services that use the LightSquared network.
For example, by partnering with LightSquared, retailers will be able to sell devices bundled with service, enabling potential new recurring revenue streams for every device while maintaining full ownership of their customers. Telecommunications service providers can expand their coverage and capabilities via LightSquared's nationwide 4G network without massive capital outlays. Device manufacturers can launch innovative and integrated devices, bundled with content and broadband service, while ensuring full ownership of their customer relationships.
