Sat Mar 18 16:17:20 2017 The Public Safety community, FirstNet, and AT&T are all pleased that the U.S. Federal Claims judge ruled against Rivada. The […] more

Yet Another Article on FirstNet Not Based on Fact – 03.14.2017

Trying to make the federal government look bad is one thing but attacking FirstNet, an organization of people working for sub-industry-standard salaries in order to serve the Public Safety community is not right. more

Thu Mar 9 17:03:53 2017 A few years ago I wrote about how Public Safety could begin to prepare for the addition of FirstNet to its communications […] more

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
