AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, is pleased to announce a new webinar, Small Cells and Municipalities. The free webinar will be presented by Iain Gillott, the president of iGR and one of the wireless industry's leading analysts.

Municipalities across the U.S. are receiving more and more requests to locate small cells in their jurisdictions. In the coming years, as mobile operators move to denser mobile networks, more applications will be filed to deploy small cells. For the planning and zoning officials in U.S. cities, small cells are a relatively new development and come with their own set of specific issues.

iGR's new webinar will provide answers to the fundamental questions many city planners are asking about small cells:

  • Why does the wireless industry need small cells?
  • Will all mobile operators need small cells? Why?
  • What does a small cell actually need to be successful?
  • Can small cells go anywhere?
  • How does the FCC shot-clock apply to small cells?
  • What is the wireless industry doing to make deployment of small cells easier?

This webinar is free and may be registered for using the following link:

Small Cells and Municipalities - Thursday, September 15th, 1pm CDT
