FRIDAY - FEBRUARY 17, 2006 - ISSUE NO. 200

Dear friends of Wireless Messaging,

Last week I wrote a letter to the FCC asking to make an oral presentation to the Hurricane Katrina Independent Panel during their next meeting. Today they issued a PUBLIC NOTICE advising that the next meeting will take place in Jackson, Mississippi on March 6, 2006. This PUBLIC NOTICE is reproduced in its entirety on page three of this issue. Receipt of my letter was acknowledged this morning:

Mr. Dye:

Thanks for your interest in giving an oral presentation at the Hurricane Katrina Independent Panel's next meeting. Attached is the FCC's Public Notice announcing the date, time and location of the Panel's next meeting. We will let you know as soon as possible whether your organization will be invited to give an oral presentation at the next meeting.

If you are in favor of my efforts to promote the use of Paging technology for emergency communications, please consider supporting the newsletter via the donate button in the column to your right. Advertisers might consider renewing their current ads (several have not yet done so) and companies that do not advertise here are encouraged to begin now.

COMMENTS ON SKYPE
We had an EMMA (European Mobile Messaging Association) "virtual board meeting" on Wednesday. It started out via a regular telephone conference call. Participants were located in Finland, the UK, USA (Illinois & Texas), and France. Then we all shifted over to Skype. The difference was amazing. On the telephone I could hardly understand the board members in Europe. On Skype everyone was "loud and clear." The frequency response on Skype is much better than a telephone line. The Skype connections were not perfect—there was some choppiness and flutter—but it was better than the conference bridge that we were using on the telephone call. I asked each person about their connection to the Internet. All were using broadband—either cable or aDSL.

Derek Banner (EMMA chairman) hosted the call and had the fastest connection through a cable modem at 4 Mbps. In a Skype conference call, all the participants get routed through the originator, so it is important that this connection be fast. Evidentially, with a fast connection like this, up to nine connections can be accommodated using the latest version of Skype. Some of the DSL connections were better than others. The "a" in aDSL stands for "asymmetrical" which means that the upload speed is slower than the download speed. For normal web browsing this is OK since the majority of the data is coming "down" from the Internet to be displayed on our computers, and the data going "up" is just short mouse clicks and URLs.

So . . . as you would expect, the faster the better for Skype and preferably a symmetrical speed (up and down the same). The best thing about Skype is that it is free—if you don't count the cost of broadband service—which most of us have anyway. If you want to try it out, call me. My Skype name is braddye.

A reader sent in a news article from December saying that Velocita (formerly Cingular Interactive) is to be bought out by Sprint/Nextel during the first half of 2006. I believe Velocita is still using the Mobitex protocol to carry Blackberry service. What I am having trouble with is reconstructing the history of this Wireless Messaging company. I believe it was originally RAM Mobile, and was then bought out by Bell South. According to their web site, they have 2,400 base stations and 47 "switch" sites operating on 900 MHz in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Can anyone help with more information on this? Maybe a short report?

Now on to more news and views.

MESSAGING

This is my weekly newsletter about Wireless Messaging. You are receiving this 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 apology.

A new issue of The Wireless Messaging Newsletter gets posted on the web each week. A notification goes out by e-mail to subscribers on most Fridays around noon central 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. Unless otherwise requested, all correspondence addressed to me is subject to publication in the newsletter and on my web site. I am very careful to protect the anonymity of those who request it.

NOTE: This newsletter is best viewed at screen resolutions of 800x600 (good) or 1024x768 (better). Any current revision of web browser should work fine. Please notify me of any problems with viewing.

Messaging Business Opportunity

Supplement your existing business by launching this new AssistSTAR message distribution management system. Increase your revenue without purchasing a lot of new infrastructure, by starting out with a subscription service on existing equipment.

What is AssistSTAR?
The AssistSTAR System allows you to manage and track the distribution of text and voice messages to individuals and groups. It also allows you to easily manage those groups (also called Distribution Lists), reassigning personnel to response teams with only a few clicks, all via the internet. AssistSTAR also
provides a Scripted Interactive Voice Response menu system that can interact with callers to determine the nature of the call and it’s appropriate processing. It will handle automated distribution of messages based on interaction with the caller, or patch callers to a live operator. It can even provide a name-dialed directory. The most unique aspect of AssistSTAR is that it is available as a monthly service. No costly servers or software licenses needed.

Subscription-based AssistSTAR to start
For a nominal setup fee and a reasonable monthly service fee, AssistSTAR can provide you with the most sophisticated communications management available today. This is ideal for the current business climate - you can add or withdraw from services as your business requires.

WIRELESS MESSAGING NEWS

Increased Functionality at Minimum Expense

Communications Facilities, Inc. (CFI), a Streamline Solution's customer, uses Zetron Sentrimax to monitor alarm points at a variety of communication sites, including federal agencies and wireless towers. The alarm conditions indicate a range of items from power failures to temperature alerts.

Boston, MA, February 16, 2006—(PR.COM)—Communications Facilities, Inc. (CFI), a Streamline Solution's customer, uses Zetron Sentrimax to monitor alarm points at a variety of communication sites, including federal agencies and wireless towers. The alarm conditions indicate a range of items from power failures to temperature alerts.

Streamline Solutions, LLC. was able to optimize CFI's communications and increase response times by installing PageGate with the GetSerial Interface. The added functionality of PageGate means that designated Communications Facilities, Inc. staff receive detailed text messages about each alarm condition.

For example, when the site located on Spruce Mountain detects a failure of the local power grid, CFI and all associated parties receive a text message on their alphanumeric pagers, cell phones, and PDA's. In some cases, CFI has added some of their key customers (site tenants) to the group call list so they too are notified of significant issues that may impact their businesses.

Streamline Solutions, LLC. was able to significantly increase functionality of the infrastructure CFI had already installed with comparatively minimal capital outlay.

Pricing and Availability:
PageGate version 4 and its six front-end gateways are available immediately. The cost of the PageGate paging engine depends upon the number of pagers or cell phones supported. Each of the front-end interface modules may be purchased separately. PageGate requires Windows 95/98/NT4/2000 running on a Pentium-class processor, 32 Mb of RAM, 50Mb of hard drive space, and a modem.

For more information, visit the NotePage web site at http://www.notepage.net/pagegate.htm. You can download a trial version of PageGate from the same url. For more information, contact NotePage, Inc. at PO Box 296, Hanover, MA 02339. Phone: 781-829-0500. Fax: 781-829-0419. E-mail: products@notepage.net. Internet: http://www.notepage.net/.

Logan's Roadhouse Selects JTECH Guest Paging

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/—Logan's Roadhouse®, affectionately known as "The Real American Roadhouse," the popular Steakhouse restaurant concept of parent company Cracker Barrel Group (Nasdaq: CBRL), has selected JTECH Communications, a subsidiary of MICROS Systems, Inc.

"We're pleased to provide Logan's with GuestPass, our newest and best guest paging product," commented JTECH founder Dave Miller. "Our business philosophy has always been to partner with our customers to provide appropriate new solutions as their businesses grow.

President Bush Honors Motorola Leadership in American Innovation and Competitiveness

Motorola Awarded National Medal of Technology During White House Ceremony

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/—Today at the White House, President George W. Bush presented Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) with the 2004 National Medal of Technology. The prestigious annual award recognizes Motorola for its outstanding contributions to America's technological innovation and competitiveness. The National Medal of Technology, established in 1980 by an act of Congress, is the highest honor awarded by the President to America's leading innovators.

Since its founding in 1928, Motorola has stood on the cutting edge of innovation in areas such as two-way radios, cellular communication, paging, space flight communication, semiconductors and integrated, digital enhanced networks. As a result, the company has helped establish entirely new industries and driven the phenomenal growth of portable and mobile communications.

"All of us at Motorola are honored to receive the National Medal of Technology from the President," said Ed Zander, Motorola chairman and chief executive officer. "This award belongs not only to the talented employees of today but to the several generations of Motorolans who built our heritage of innovation. Given this heritage, we strongly support the President's plan to keep America the world's most competitive and innovative nation."

In the President's State of the Union address on January 31, he announced his American Competitiveness Initiative. The initiative calls for bold private-sector investment in innovation and renewed emphasis on math and science education.

"We applaud the administration for proposing increased investments in R&D, in particular for the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) at Commerce and for the National Science Foundation," said Padmasree Warrior, Motorola executive vice president and chief technology officer. "From convergence to mobile Internet to nanotechnology, we must educate, excite and inspire our nation's children about science, technology, engineering and mathematics."

Motorola invests more than $3.5 billion annually into research and development and has long supported math and science education, including the FIRST Robotics competition, the Teach for America program, the United Negro College Fund, the Mathcounts Foundation, Girls Inc. and the Ibero American Science & Technology Education Consortium.

History of Innovation

A pioneer, innovator and visionary in wireless, broadband and mobile communication, Motorola has transformed innovative ideas into products and solutions to connect people to each other and the world around them.

In personal communication, Motorola has changed the way the world communicates, from the introduction of the DynaTAC cell phone in 1983 to today's ultra-thin RAZR handset. In two-way radio services—from the Handie-Talkie radio of World War II to today's light-weight models—Motorola has been the leading provider to public safety, government, transportation, utility and manufacturing enterprises.

Its digital video set-tops and voice-over-IP enhanced cable modems deliver the promise of a connected home just as the original home radios, telephones, and televisions did in the 1930s and '40s. Motorola has also developed an array of microprocessors for products ranging from some of the first video games to today's most advanced digital cameras.

Today, Motorola's labs are researching and developing cutting-edge technologies to deliver on the promise of seamless mobility—connecting the unconnected and bringing the mobile Internet to the next billion people worldwide. In addition, Motorola's research in micro-miniaturization and concern for the environment are resulting in ever-smaller portable electronic devices that reduce power consumption and are eco-friendly.

About Motorola

Motorola is known around the world for innovation and leadership in wireless and broadband communications. Inspired by our vision of Seamless Mobility, the people of Motorola are committed to helping you get and stay connected simply and seamlessly to the people, information, and entertainment that you want and need. We do this by designing and delivering "must have" products, "must do" experiences and powerful networks—along with a full complement of support services.
