#CMASummit21 “Industry” Follow-Up

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all those who participated in the #CMASummit21 Industry event on 10/28/2021 and also made it a successful event with their contributions. We saw great presentations related to more kinds of wireless communicatons we have seen before. We learned how importent it is to delever reliable services – more than before.

As already mentioned, we unfortunately could not keep to our schedule – to much content – and therefore some contributions have been moved to next Summit – Event.  We would now like to present these presentations on 22.11. in a Follow-Up Event.

We would therefore like to invite you to participate in a Zoom meeting on 22.11. at 3 pm CET, in which we will provide you with the interesting information. Matters:

Blackout and Communications
Data Protection (Contrib. Requ.)
Mathematics as an important Sales Argument (, isn’t it)
and more

Below you can see the agenda. For participation please use and the login data you already know, or, if you have no login data, register via the “Signup”-button.

See you soon



The event is finished.
