The Safer Buildings Coalition (SBC) announced today that its founder, Seth Buechley, will speak at a panel at this year’s IWCE Conference. The SBC consists of public-safety, commercial cellular and building owner stakeholders who collaborate to solve the problem of public-safety radio coverage inside buildings. The initiative employs a common sense approach of using awareness, policy and certification standards to ensure that Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) installations accommodate public-safety radio services used by first responders.

Seth Buechley, founder of the Safer Buildings Coalition, is also president of SOLiD, a manufacturer of innovative DAS and Optical Network Transport solutions. The company's DAS products enable capacity and coverage for commercial wireless, public-safety radio, private 2-way radio and paging on a code-compliant, single-fiber architecture, and have been deployed at leading hospitals, world-class hotels and resorts, Fortune 500 corporate campuses, international airports, professional sports venues, metropolitan subways and other marquee customer sites. SOLiD's optical solutions, based upon advanced DWDM-PON technology (dense wavelength division multiplexing; passive optical network), facilitate myriad communications deployments including symmetrical 1GE and 10GE links, Passive Optical LAN (POL) and backhaul for LTE small cells, Remote Radio Heads (RRH) and WiFi Offload.

Mr. Buechley began his wireless career as co-founder of CORD Communications, a wireless infrastructure development company, which was sold to a public company in 1998. He frequently presents and blogs about converged public safety and cellular DAS.
