    WHAT:       What is the 700 MHz Spectrum in my World and How Can I Get it?
                (Brent McAdams)
                Mission-critical processes are measured by their ability to
                meet uptime and performance requirements, especially with
                wireless. Carrier-grade wireless equipment and 700MHz licensed
                high-speed spectrum is now available, for the first time, to
                deploy for gas measurement communications. The 700 MHz
                licensed spectrum (versus unlicensed) provides a predictable
                RF environment protected from external interference, thus
                improving control over band management, security and speed. In
                addition, it provides privacy and extraordinary propagation.
                As a result, the broad propagation characteristics reduce the
                number and height of towers needed, resulting in a more cost-
                effective deployment. Now, new technologies are being
                introduced specifically for use in this spectrum. This paper
                will explore these technologies and offer participants a
                hands-on look on how to effectively deploy them.

                Leveraging Hybrid Wireless Systems (Jim Gardner)
                Companies with large geographically dispersed remote networks
                in the oil and gas industry can select one technology, one
                source, one vendor to collect, retrieve and report data to
                assess the health of the network. Sometimes, this type of
                approach makes sense. However, other times integrating other
                types of technologies offer significant benefits that can
                easily and more cost-effectively be incorporated into one
                cohesive network. This presentation will provide attendees
                with specific ways they can set up and deploy hybrid networks
                to drive maintenance/monthly costs down - directly impacting
                their bottom line; decrease polling cycle times; reduce the
                time needed to identify and rectify problems within the
                network; and, eliminate system "pinch points" - or single
                points of failure.
