FRIDAY - OCTOBER 3, 2003 - ISSUE NO. 78

Dear Friends and Industry Colleagues,

I have received several messages inquiring about my well being. Many thanks to everyone! I am OK and very thankful that my electric power service was finally restored on last Monday after an 11-day absence. Fortunately neither my family nor I suffered any damages during the storm.

It is my pleasure to welcome two new advertisers to the newsletter this week. Swissphone, the company, was introduced in the September 12th newsletter. I will introduce some of the Swissphone products in this issue. There are many applications where a little flimsy consumer type of pager just won't do the job. Swissphone pagers are highly recommended for their rugged and reliable Swiss quality. For professional use, where dependability is of prime importance, there is nothing better.

Advanced RF Communications is a company with many capabilities. RF systems engineering for both one-way and two-way paging systems is their specialty. They will come to help you.

Please check out both of these companies in the following advertising section. If you talk to them, thank them for their support of this newsletter.

I received so many interesting messages this week that I decided to share some of them with you. Two or three companies have volunteered to participate in a paging-share-of-market survey after my appeal for cooperation in the September 12th issue. Unfortunately this survey wouldn't be worth a lot unless several of the large paging companies agree to participate. I hope more agree to do so—it would be good for the whole paging industry.

This is my weekly newsletter about Wireless Data and Radio Paging. You are receiving this message because you have either communicated with me in the past about a wireless topic, or your address was included in another e-mail that I received on the same subject. This is not a SPAM. If you have received this message in error, or you are not interested in these topics, please click here, then click on “send” and you will be promptly removed from the mailing list with my apologies.

A new issue of the Paging and Wireless Data Newsletter gets posted on the web each week. A notification goes out by e-mail to subscribers on most Fridays around noon Eastern US time. The notification message has a link to the actual newsletter on the Internet. That way it doesn't fill up your incoming e-mail account.

There is no charge for subscription and there are no membership restrictions. Readers are a very select group of wireless industry professionals, and include the senior managers of many of the world's major paging and wireless data companies. There is an even mix of operations managers, marketing people, and engineers, so I try to include items of interest to all three groups. It's all about staying up-to-date with business trends and technology.

I regularly get reader's comments, so this newsletter has become a community forum for the paging, and wireless data communities. You are welcome to contribute your ideas and opinions.

NOTE: This newsletter is best viewed at screen resolutions of 800x600 (good) or 1024x768 (better). Any current revision of web browser should work just fine. Please notify me of any problems with viewing. This site is compliant with XHTML 1.0 transitional coding for easy access from wireless devices. (XML 1.0 / ISO 8859-1)

Reader's Comments from Russia

Dear Brad!

How are you? We hope you did not suffer from that sever hurricane Isabel which took place in USA. We were sorry to hear that there were victims because of it.

Thanks for your news letter. I have forwarded it to our General Director. You touch upon a very interesting question in it regarding cooperating and publishing a sort of report about the real state of things for the USA paging companies. It will be very informative and helpful for every one interested in paging.

Our congratulations on the growth of your Association of American Paging Carriers!

Our Russian Association of Paging Operators consists of more than 40 representatives from 100 cities of Russia and Belorussia. It is created on the basis of our company and our General Director is a Chairman of the Association.

Let me introduce Professor Yuriy Tulyakov to you. My letter will be continued by Mr. Tulykov.

Best wishes,

Dear Brad!

I have got interested in the correspondence between you and one of our leading specialists. We are certainly to carry out the common business, and our cooperation will sure to meet the better results. I personally would like to mention the following things:

I can say that here in Russia paging operators find themselves practically in the same position as it is in USA; cellular operators are covering for paging operators. And the members of Association collaborate in order to cope with the problems which paging industry faces.

We should like to invite you to take part in our annual conference of the Association of Russian paging operators. At this conference we discuss the situation on the paging market, get aquatinted with new technologies in this area, present new targets. We plan to hold the conference approximately in the end of October-beginning of November. We shall inform you about the fixed date before hand.

We are ready to take part in your Questionnaire. Besides we can give answers concerning the members of our Association. It is possible to create a common report of data (situation) of paging market of Russia, CIS, USA. It is possible to try to get data of paging in Europe and China. So we are waiting for your questions and are eager to help.

Our company was established with the help of American company. We are glad to admit that there are real paging patriots among the Americans. In case you are interested to get acquainted with them-we are ready to help you with it.

This conference is a great opportunity to distribute your questionnaire.

Do you think it is possible for you to come to Russia to take part in our Conference? You can make a report on the topic that you regard as the most urgent one for paging or about your Association. In any way it would be interesting. We believe that exchanging thoughts and ideas will produce fruitful results for both parts.

Brad! We shall be very glad to meet you here and to cooperate with you. If you find our idea interesting, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes,

Reader's Comments from the USA

Hi Brad.

You know it's funny. . . Way back then, paging was quite prosperous. It was very difficult to acquire recognition in the paging industry. Everyone thought they had all of the answers and they really didn't care what others had to say.

Besides, a person who was quite good at marketing pagers, did not it in only because they were not part of the group of the larger paging operations.

I was in the paging business for 25 years. I was transferred to the Tampa Bay area to start a medical paging business for doctors and hospitals.

We were extremely successful. We acquired 80% of the medical pagers in the Bay area of Tampa. But you know, it's funny. . . Not everyone knew who we were. We were this little paging operation in the Tampa Bay area.

You know what?? We were very successful. We acquired most of the medical pagers in Tampa Bay.

We can now look at paging. . . Everyone is struggling. All of a sudden, it does not matter if you were a big fish in a little pond or a little fish in a big pond. We are all the same. We are still fish!!!

It just goes to show you that it is all relevant!! Who really cares at this point? Cellular has taken over the paging industry.

You know what?? There is still a market for hospitals and doctors. It is a specialized market and I have the key to success. . . Anyone interested in how to accomplish this market, contact me.

IEEE to boost WLAN throughput with new standard

Sept. 26, 2003 1:03 PM EST

A new wireless local area network standard is being developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers—the 802.11n protocol. According to the standards body, the new 802.11n protocol will raise the effective throughput for wireless LAN to at least 100 megabits per second, three times the existing speed of 30 Mbps.

"The standard will create parity between wired and wireless systems, so enterprises can extend their use of wireless networks to areas where the rate of existing wireless products has been insufficient," said IEEE.

The protocol is expected to be useful in enterprise networks in offices and campuses, which typically have 100 Mbps wired network connections. It will also help in home networks with consumer applications like data-intensive multimedia equipment with multiple channels of digital video.

"It will allow hot spots in airports, hotels, cafes and other public spaces to offer at least twice the number of user connections than is possible," noted the standards body.

IEEE said the definition of the speed objective for 802.11n will differ from others like 802.11g. It will focus on the medium access control 802.11r other than the physical layer so that it can match what users see in transferring files and other tasks, according to IEEE.

"We expect the new standard to meet the current demand for better WLAN service and allow a range of advanced uses," said Stuart J. Kerry, IEEE 802.11 working group chair.

He identified the improvements in this standard as higher-performing radio frequency and analog chips on advanced CMOS technology and the integration of entire WLAN adapters onto a chip.

FCC Commissioner Asks For Industry Feedback

October 2, 2003

HOLLYWOOD, Fla.—Saying there is an open door to the FCC, Commissioner Kevin Martin encouraged attendees of PCIA's Wireless Infrastructure Conference & Expo to let commissioners know of their concerns related to making the wireless network more robust.

In an open forum discussion at the first keynote address, Martin empathized with the economic travails of the last 18 months, noting that more than 1,000 jobs were lost in wireless. Martin's brother worked in the wireless industry for five years and was laid off earlier this year. "So it is personal," he says.

Martin noted that the commissioners were concerned and struggling to provide relief and assistance with actions that might spur investor interest. In particular he pointed to elimination of spectrum caps, streamlining approval processes for underutilized spectrum and facilitation of licensing for tower siting, all in an effort to improve the economic climate.

Also of note, Martin highlighted activities of the Homeland Security Policy Committee, saying that when disaster strikes such as it did Sept. 11 and with earthquakes and the recent blackout, it is essential to make sure wireless service remains available. To address this, the committee is taking steps to ensure that wireless systems become more robust, make sure carriers have adequate contingency plans to restore service as soon as possible and guarantee first responders and emergency services have priority access and service.

PAGING CARRIER REPRESENTATIVES OPPOSE ELIMINATION
OF "COMMON CARRIER" DESIGNATION FROM FCC RULES

AAPC, jointly with Arch, Metrocall, Weblink and Allied, filed comments with the FCC this week opposing elimination of the term "common carrier" from Part 22 of FCC rules. The comments were filed in an FCC rulemaking proceeding as part of its Congressionally mandated review to modify or eliminate outmoded or unnecessary rules. The FCC proposed to delete the term "common carrier" as an unnecessary "restriction" and replace it with a more neutral term "licensee" throughout Part 22. The paging representatives cautioned that eliminating the term to describe the status of Part 22 licensees could have unintended adverse consequences for the paging industry in their interconnection negotiations with ILECs and in their attempts to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA").

Separately, the paging representatives supported an FCC proposal to consider modifications of contours extending over water to be minor modifications not requiring prior FCC approval.

The Ambient Orb

ambient orb

Now in stock at your local Brookstone store

Green... the market's up. Yellow... unchanged. Red... stocks are down. Know your financial position at a glance. The Orb slowly transitions between thousands of colors in response to stock market activity. Pre-configured to track the Dow, it can also be set up to mirror NASDAQ, S&P 500 or your individual portfolio.

You don't need a PC or an Internet connection. Just plug the Orb into a standard outlet, and you're instantly tapped into the pulse of the market. There are no monthly service charges for the basic service, and it only costs $150.00!

Mirrors more than markets

As an alternative to tracking stocks, the Orb can be customized to respond to weather conditions, pollen levels, or even the Homeland Security Channel.

This is a Wireless Data receiver that receives its market updates over the WebLink Wireless nationwide paging system. It should work just fine in most major populated areas in the United States.
