NEW YORK, NY — At the 2012 International CES next week, Verizon and a wide range of technology ecosystem partners will demonstrate how they are creating innovative solutions and breaking down old-technology barriers to meet the communications and entertainment needs of consumers and businesses.

“Connectivity has reached unprecedented levels, thanks to a rapid pace of innovation driven as much by consumers as the needs of industry,” said John Stratton, president of Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “Verizon enables the connectivity that consumers want – both directly and through the many businesses we serve around the globe. The technology we’ll be showcasing at CES illustrates how Verizon continues to create connections that improve how customers live and work -- anytime, anywhere.”

Stratton will be part of the CES Innovation Power Panel taking place at 9 a.m. PT Wednesday (Jan. 11) in the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Theater (formerly the Hilton).  The panel, which also includes CEOs from Xerox and Ford Motor Co., will explore how a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship helped make their companies global leaders in their respective industries. Verizon will webcast the power panel live.

Verizon Booth to Feature Products, Solutions, Apps and Services
Verizon will have a booth on the exhibit floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center (South Hall, #30259) featuring dozens of products, solutions, applications and services that show the power and capabilities of the nation's largest 4G LTE wireless network, the nation's most advanced fiber-to-the-home network and the most connected global IP network.

Many of the demonstrations are the result of work done as part of Verizon’s Innovation Program, and highlight collaborations among multiple companies in industries that include automotive, gaming, multi-screen entertainment, health and wellness, home automation and more.
