Open Letter to Congress (and Anyone Else)

January 27, 2011

Dear Senator/Congressman

As you are aware the role of the FCC and the goal of providing a National Broadband Policy is very much in question and requires you guidance.  We believe the old models need to be rethought and we have addressed the discussion in something we call Regulatory 2.0.  http://4g-wirelessevolution.tmcnet.com/conference/east-11/regu.aspx

Who You Calling "Droid"

January 3, 2011

This week the eyes of the wireless world turn to CES to see what will be in hands and hearts for the next 6 months.  Of course we will also keep and eye on Cupertino.  However,  The Wall Street Journal has pointed out that Verizon is going to have an LTE phone announcement in Las Vegas this week (see http://on.wsj.com/f6tk69 ) As technologists we will be curious to see if this is UTRAN / VoLTE or something else.

I suspect it will keep the volce separate. 

As a Friend let me help your on your way to the IPO.

Shameless Promotion When it Comes to White Space

December 28, 2010

FCC Chairman Genachowski called the opening of TV White Space as SuperWiFI.

We are the first to do a spot check on whether the superWiFi is just around the corner or too hard to implement.

You can see the event here http://bit.ly/fZoxVt  but coming to the event is probably the smartest move you can make.  If you think about WiFI it started with a small amount of spectrum.

If You Thought Defining Obscenity was tough Lets Talk about Wireless Security.

December 27, 2010

“I know it when I see it” is the famous quote of Justice Potter Stewart about obscenity,  But when it comes to Security it’s what you don’t see that can kill you.

It’s nice in the movies that the bomb always has an LED to tick away at the clock and blue and red cables to give you a fifty – fifty choice.

The big question we have to face in the future is how much choice do we really have? That is the point, IMHO, of Commerce Department General Council Cameron Kerry’s discussion with the Wall Street Journal http://on.wsj.com/elSIHC about establishing a privacy office.
