Watch or listen to a #WirelessFightsCOVID Sparring Partners videocast on how wireless networks have brought connectivity to underserved communities and people during the COVID-19 pandemic and how technology can improve our preparedness for future emergencies. Heather Williams, Manager, Solutions Engineering at CommScope, and Joe Hillis, Operations Director at Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) joined Chris Nicoll, Nicoll Associates, and Monica Paolini, Senza Fili in the debate.

These are some questions we debated:

  • – Do wireless technologies give us the flexibility we need during epidemics and other emergencies?
  • – How did wireless technologies help us connect the unconnected or underserved during the pandemic?
  • – What use cases are the most important to meet connectivity needs in healthcare, education, production and supply chain?
  • – How is the epidemic going to change the way we deploy the wireless infrastructure in the future?
