Reflecting the converged communications marketplace, wireless technologies will play a key role on the TelecomNEXT exhibit floor and in conference programming when the communications industry meets in Las Vegas, March 19-23, 2006 at TelecomNEXT.

"The future of communications is a marketplace where wired and wireless networks operate seamlessly, securely and in innovative ways to deliver exciting new products and services to consumers. TelecomNEXT is the only place where you can see all of these dynamic technologies come together," said John Abel, Senior Vice President - Membership, Marketing and Business Development for USTelecom.
