PAGING AND WIRELESS DATA NEWS

New Proposal for ReFLEX™ and IEEE 802.11

If you are interested in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 a, b, g, etc.) and paging as well, I would like to recommend a new white paper by my friend Allan Angus (PE, TVP Architecture at WebLink Wireless). I just finished reading his paper and I think it has great potential. For those of you familiar with my "Wheel of Fortune" presentations on innovative, non-traditional uses of paging technology, you will understand what I mean when I say that this is another spoke in the wheel. In other words, here is another great contribution that paging technology can make to the world of wireless business.

This paper identifies a major problem in Wi-Fi communications and recommends an elegant solution.

As many people start to use Wi-Fi equipped lap-top computers, PDAs, and other cool new devices being introduced almost daily, it doesn't take them long to find out that they can't contact another mobile user anytime they want. Say you are sitting in a wireless "hot-spot" at Starbucks enjoying a cup of Arabian Mocha Java, or my favorite the original dark Espresso Roast, and you want to connect with a friend's or a co-worker's Wi-Fi device—well you can't do it! (Unless you are both in the same Starbucks.) Yes, a simple thing like "call completion" is not supported.

The problem is that Wi-Fi or wireless computer networks, whose technical name is IEEE 802.11x, can't find out where the other person is located so you can call them to chat with IM or transfer files. So wouldn't it be nice if someone would build a new nationwide, high-powered radio system, that could penetrate into buildings, and cover most of the populated areas of the country, to solve this problem? Gosh, that would probably cost a over billion dollars. But not-to-worry, there are already existing wireless systems that are ideal for solving this problem.

So this paper explains, "it is impossible to push information to the mobile computer either when it is inactive and has no IP address anywhere or when its current IP address is not known to the computer that has information to push." It then presents "a solution that tightly integrates WLANs with ReFLEX™ NPCS networks to provide the missing link, namely, a common control channel."

Now comes the really cool part. Without getting into the technical details (you can read the paper for that), the solution is to simply send your IP address to the person you want to connect with, over a ReFLEX messaging network. Think of it as a situation identical to wanting to talk to someone on the telephone and not knowing where s/he is. What do you do? Well, you just send the person a numeric page with your telephone number in it and s/he calls you back. It's the same thing as traditional paging only with your IP address instead of your telephone number. BRILLIANT!

And not only does this paper offer the solution, it also explains how to do it by adapting existing protocols known as SIP and SDP (Session Initiation Protocol and Session Description Protocol). For those of you technically inclined, you can download the white paper in "pdf" format here. Background reading on SIP and ADP is also available here. This is a very-well-thought-out recommendation.

Summary
This white paper presents a modest proposal for the use of NPCS networks as a common control channel for a general model of roaming Internet device, including specifically IEEE 802.11x units (but in no way limited to them.)

The proposal depends upon the use of a session description mechanism like SDP over SIP to carry session "invitations" to target roamers. As well, the target roamers would need have dual or multi-mode connection capabilities; for example, NPCS and an Internet connection method. In practice, the advantages of the proposal over the obvious alternatives are numerous and include better battery life, reduced infrastructure, improved security, mobility management, and OAM&P [operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning] functions.

BARI Looks To Snap Up i3 Mobile

August 28, 2003

i3 Mobile may be down and out financially, but the company is still a hot ticket. BARI Holdings Irrevocable Trust has its eye on the customized information provider, and doesn't plan to take no for an answer.

BARI trustee Anthony Baratta is leading the charge to acquire i3 Mobile to enhance his Info On The Go technology. The patent-pending technology for Info On The Go is designed to give users instant information about anything from real estate to restaurant menus on their wireless devices. Users will gain access to information instantly by pressing a button on their wireless device in the direction of a base unit. One of i3 Mobile's main problems was the service was too expensive, believes Baratta. He estimates the per-click charge at two to three cents.

After charging out of the gate, i3 Mobile has suffered operating losses, staff cuts and was forced to stop offering its mobile subscription information service to better manage its cash resources and working capital. The company has been looking for a potential merger partner for nearly a year.

Paging Equipment For Sale in Brazil (as reported last week)

There is a large amount of paging equipment for sale in Brazil. The current owner bought the equipment from PageNet of Brazil when they deactivated part of their network. One exception is a GL3200 which is still located in Miami. It was never put into the production system because of the decision not to implement ReFLEX. About one-half of the parts are brand-new and in boxes. Other parts came from a big GL3930/3000 that was dismantled and sold for junk.

The owner is willing to have the equipment packed and shipped anywhere but would like to receive payment before shipment. He is also willing to give a discount to anyone wanting to purchase the whole lot of equipment.

If you are interested in any or all of this equipment, please get in touch with me. I will put you in contact with the owner and then you and he can work out all the details between the two of you. A link to the equipment list follows.

My comments:
I don't represent Proxim but when their salesman called me and then sent me the above information about this new product, I thought you might like to see it too. This product uses the IEEE 802.11a protocol which is designed for outdoor use and has MUCH greater range than IEEE 802.11b which is an indoor protocol.

It uses OFDM modulation (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) which was invented by those smart Canadians and is used for High Definition Television transmission in Europe because it is based on mathematical formulas that predict signal nulls and therefore allow for the cancellation of signal reflections which cause "ghosting" in television reception. So this product offers "non-line-of-sight" operation which I guess means that it can communicate over hills and around buildings. Off the record, they claim up to 30-mile coverage. That might be a stretch, but this is sure a big advantage over 802.11b which con only communicate a few feet indoors. There are some specially designed 802.11b systems for outdoor use, that incorporate amplifiers and special antennas, but I remain unconvinced as to their usefulness. I think this would be my choice for a quick, inexpensive way to get into the WISP (Wireless Internet Service Provider) business. Of course I would get a base and a subscriber unit and try them out before making a heavy investment.

WLAN company Mobility Networks shuts down

Aug. 27, 2003 1:53 PM EST

Privately held Mobility Networks, which sold technology to wireless carriers that linked wide area networks with Wi-Fi hot spots, has shut down and ceased operations. . .

Dubbed WiFiRAN, Mobility Networks' technology allowed mobile operators to offer WLAN services without making any changes to their existing wide area networks. The company said mobile operators could leverage current investments in their infrastructures to offer authentication, charging/billing and security to public wireless LAN networks.

The company’s shutdown comes at an interesting time, as T-Mobile USA Inc. continues to build out its Wi-Fi network and AT&T Wireless Services Inc., Sprint PCS, Verizon Wireless and others look to offer or resell Wi-Fi services.

Wi-Fi On Trains

ACE and PointShot bring wireless Internet to mobile commuters

Stockton, Calif. and Ottawa - August 25, 2003 - PointShot Wireless, a developer of wireless solutions for mobile environments including trains, buses and vehicles, announced today it has signed an agreement with California rail operator Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) to implement the first-ever U.S. trial of a Wi-Fi enabled train. The three-month trial is scheduled to begin in mid-September and will provide free Internet access to ACE passengers, allowing them first-time access to email, the Internet, corporate intranets, instant messaging and digital entertainment while in transit.

ACE has installed PointShot Wireless’ RailPoint™ Wi-Fi solution on its trains to serve a community of business travelers, commuting daily from Stockton to San Jose, California. The service is free-of-charge during the trial, and ACE passengers only need a Wi-Fi-enabled laptop computer or PDA to access the broadband wireless service.

“Onboard Internet access is the logical next step for a passenger-focused service like ACE,” said Chris Juelch, ACE’s project manager for the PointShot endeavor. “Most ACE riders are business commuters, so the PointShot Wireless system will help them dramatically increase their onboard productivity. We’re excited to add this new level of service to the ACE commuting experience.”

PointShot Wireless’ RailPoint™ is a mobile wireless solution that lets rail operators such as ACE better attract loyal travelers, increase yield and generate new revenue streams by offering differentiated onboard connectivity, communication and content services to passengers. In addition, RailPoint enables new business applications for operators, including onboard communication, real-time ticketing and advanced security features.

ACE expects 25-to-30 percent of its passengers will immediately utilize the service to stay connected and be more productive while commuting. In fact, a recent survey conducted at ACE found that nearly one-third of passengers surveyed would utilize such a service to take online courses or obtain a college degree while aboard ACE trains.

PointShot Wireless enables the Wi-Fi service with a satellite-delivered broadband downlink and cellular uplink to an onboard Wi-Fi access point.

ACE is the second rail operator in North America to use Wi-Fi as a competitive differentiator. Intel Canada, Bell Canada and PointShot Wireless successfully implemented a trial for Canadian travelers last month on VIA Rail Canada passenger trains. Similar deployments are planned in the United States and Europe later this year.

“Our Wi-Fi trial with ACE advances the company’s strategy to build and deliver comprehensive and transparent wireless services to mobile users,” said Shawn Griffin, president and CEO of PointShot Wireless. “With our SolutionPoint platform, we are allowing rail operators and other mobile markets to deliver new wireless solutions to their customers, generate new revenues and open new market segments.”

"The e-mailed photo is, in fact, a cropped, doctored version of a well-known composite image created from satellite photos taken between 1994 and 1995 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program." [Correction added on 8/30/03 thanks to Richard Krigsman.]
