Spectrum Bridge exhibited at the 2009 GLMSS “Great Lakes Motorola Service Station” annual show, held at the plush Don CeSar Beach Resort in St Pete Beach, FL. There were approximately 80 attendees and 20 exhibitors. Rick Frizalone, Director of Sales and John Dynes, Sr. Account Manager of Channel Sales attended on behalf of Spectrum Bridge.
The show attendees were upbeat and most had a positive outlook on future and said their current business was minimally affected despite the current economic environment. At the event, the reaction to the Spectrum Bridge offering was well received and most attendees indicated that frequency licensing is an ongoing issue for many of their customers, especially with the current financial challenges the public sector is facing.
The general theme seemed to be that most customers did not want to face the expense of a new network if they could find ways to enhance or expand the one they were using. Spectrum Bridge is uniquely positioned to help many of these clients with support to find the spectrum needed to expand their capacity or footprint.
It was also apparent that many of the attendees were license holders that could see the opportunity of listing their underutilized spectrum with other holders creating larger blocks of spectrum. These larger blocks command a better overall price and have many more applications for potential lease or purchase options.
All in all, we enjoyed being part of the GLMSS show, and look forward to continuing to offer our solutions to this great group of people.
