									Former FCC Chairman Kevin Martin Added to
List of Keynote Presenters at ITEXPO in Miami
Interview-Style Session with TMC’s Rich Tehrani will Discuss new Technology, Business Trends, and
Regulatory Issues that Influence the Telecommunications Industry Today

NORWALK, Conn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--TMC today announced that Kevin J. Martin, Former
Chairman of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Board of Directors, AirWalk
Communications, will deliver a keynote address at ITEXPO on Wednesday, February 2nd at 5:00pm EST. In an
interview-style session, TMC’s CEO and group editor-in-chief, Rich Tehrani and Chairman Martin will discuss a
number of issues ranging from the latest wireless technology, to the regulatory policies that influence the
telecommunications industry today.

Kevin Martin is one of today's leading experts in telecommunications and technology policy with over 15 years
experience as a lawyer and central policymaker in the field. Martin served as Chairman of the US Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) from March 2005 to January 2009 during a critical time when the industry was
undergoing unprecedented change as a result of rapid growth and innovation. Under Martin, the FCC created a
regulatory environment that led to exponential growth in technological innovation, wireless infrastructure, and
coverage for Americans.

Under Martin’s leadership, the FCC conducted the two most successful and profitable auctions of spectrum in U.S.
history, raising nearly $20 billion in 2008 alone.

During Chairman Martin’s tenure, the FCC removed legacy regulations that had discouraged infrastructure
investment and slowed deployment, leading to increased broadband investment and competition. The number of
broadband lines available in the United States more than doubled to over 100 million.

Martin also championed innovative technologies, like using blank television channels or so called “white spaces” to
improve wireless connectivity and inspire new Internet-based products and services for consumers.

While at the FCC, Martin represented the United States in dozens of bilateral negotiations and addressed numerous
international conferences as a global leader on telecommunications and technology policy.

“I’m looking forward to an in-depth discussion about the demand for more spectrum throughout the US and its
policy implications,” said Martin. “In response to the exponential growth in wireless demand, various new
technologies and products, including femtocells and picocells, are emerging as solutions to provide efficient coverage
and capacity.” 

Martin currently serves on the board of directors for AirWalk Communications, a leader in innovative small cell
solutions.

“Chairman Martin was deeply involved in opening up wireless markets for the benefit of consumers and we are
honored to have the former FCC Chairman participate in ITEXPO where he will share his vast experience and
thoughts on the latest wireless trends and technologies,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman.
