These half-day and full-day workshops provide a good foundation for your communications technology knowledge, from backhaul and test & measurement to project management and system planning. Whether you need fundamentals, just a brush up on what’s new or in-depth training, these courses are useful to set the stage for both short courses and visiting exhibitors.

IWCE’s Short Courses

Wednesday, March 13 – Friday, March 15
Short courses are valuable as you get the information you need while also attending the exhibit hall on Wednesday and Thursday. They continue on Friday so you get a full week of education! Valuable information on infrastructure, system planning, next generation networks, broadband, hardware, applications, spectrum optimization and interoperability are all covered, as well as special sessions for specific attendee groups, and regulatory updates from leading associations.
"You always know IWCE will provide you with the opportunity to see the new technologies that vendors and developers are anxious to show, but one of the biggest benefits to attending IWCE is running into the large number of spontaneous discussions at booths. Many of these discussions... Address solutions to the same situations you face at home." - Bill Brown, Radio Manager, Department of Transportation

Animal Farm 7 - Salt Lake City, Utah, Jan 29th - Feb 1st 2013

The Animal Farm Users Group consists of Canopy-based WISPs from around the world who in large part provide high-grade, high-speed broadband service to areas underserved (or poorly served) by incumbent wireline service providers (i.e. cable & telco). The group’s activities are sponsored largely by third-party product vendors Wireless Beehive, Last Mile Gear, PacketFlux, their distributors, and several others.
The mailing list ( ) has had a couple homes over the years, and has always generated a healthy amount of traffic with topics ranging from ISP business issues to project management to network troubleshooting and more.
Current list membership exceeds 450 members, with anywhere from 50 to over 300 posts in a given day.

Mailing list archives are hosted by Beehive Broadband.The Animal Farm conferences have helped to match names with faces and encourage cooperation on all fronts between list members. It is impossible to measure the amount of assistance, business, and other offlist interaction that has undoubtedly resulted from person-to-person networking fostered by Animal Farm. As many attendees have put it, “This is the show to attend” for Canopy WISPs.
Much credit goes to Motorola’s WiBB team for 1) creating a solid, reliable family of products and 2) recognizing and supporting the grass roots movement that has become Animal Farm.
From the WISPTech Wiki:“Animal Farm is a Motorola Canopy users group. It is not affiliated with Motorola in any official manner. Animal Farm is for users of Motorola Canopy™ equipment to meet and discuss topics of common interest. This is a user driven event, not a vendor driven event. It is also a place for contributors of to meet face to face. …”
