Another Technology Ahead of Its Time – 07.10.2014

It appears to me as if Google is throwing things at a wall to see what sticks. Perhaps it would be better off to put together partnerships with other players.

Internet Everywhere! – 06.12.2014

I think it is time for the network operators to begin promoting PTT by educating their sales people in stores and their existing customers about what PTT is, what it can do, and why it would be appealing. Today’s younger generation grew up with cellular phones and has taken to them for texting, Internet access, and not so much for voice. Voice seems to be their last choice for wireless communications.

2014 Another Great Year for Wireless? – 01.15.2014

The trend for video over wireless is the primary reason for this continued increase in demand, and as more of us own more wirelessly-enabled devices, I don’t see any end in sight. more

Satellite Companies Turned Terrestrial – 08.26.2013

Does anyone remember Teledesic? Founded in the 1990s by Bill Gates, Craig McCaw, Paul Allen, and Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Teledesic was to launch 840 low-earth orbiting satellites (LEOs) and provide data at the then blazing speed of 720 Kbps down and 100 Kbps up from the ground. more

Wi-Fi Invades the Car? – 04.11.2013

...except for some hotels, I have not been asked to pay for a Wi-Fi connection in the past two years. But that is what Audi and T-Mobile apparently expect us to do. At the time of purchase of the car, you can pay an additional $450 and get 30 months of Wi-Fi in your car, fed by T-Mobile’s 4G network. more

FirstNet: Listen to Your Customers! – 07.22.2014

The majority of the Public Safety community still believes today that this new network is about data and video and not about voice, at least for the foreseeable future. more

The Politics of Mission-Critical Voice – 05.13.2014

Now it seems Voice over LTE hype is back in full swing. At the recent APCO event, apparently the word was that the 3GPP will add mission-critical voice to the standards by 2018, so 2018 is when it will be available for FirstNet. more

While We Wait for FirstNet (A Different Take) – 04.18.2014

The Public Safety community wants to be more than simply customers on the FirstNet system. They want to be good partners as well. But in order to prepare for FirstNet they need some guidance and they need it soon. Many opportunities to ensure that new Public Safety LMR systems are “FirstNet-ready” will be lost unless this type of information is created and then disseminated in a timely fashion. more
