Put Everything on the Internet! Cancel all other Services! – 08.05.2015

I can imagine the surprise when those who trust the Internet and view it as a 99.999% (“5-9s”) reliable network suddenly found themselves without it. In reality, the on and off ramps may not always be able to provide access.

It Can’t Happen To Me! – 03.11.2015

Why then did the world turn its back on BlackBerry? The simple reason was the pizazz of the iPhone and then Android smartphones. Unfortunately, when the BlackBerry lost its luster, we lost our ability to send and receive secure emails and text messages.

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

FirstNet and the Inspector General’s Report – 12.17.2014

Let’s hope that what comes out of this is more independence for FirstNet, leaving FirstNet to pick up the pace and get this network in the ground and operational. more

Is Partnering with FirstNet Possible? – 09.12.2014

As I see it, no meaningful private discussions means no partners. No partners means no more money for the network. No more money for the network means at some point FirstNet will not be able to continue to function, which means Public Safety will have lost the most important opportunity it will ever have to fix its interoperability problems. 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
