Dear Friends of Wireless Messaging,
I have made all my reservations and registrations to attend the AAPC Wireless Forum and the PTC meeting in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the end of this month. I hope to see you there. Details about these important and enjoyable events follow.
* Silent Key refers to an amateur radio operator who has deceased. The term is frequently abbreviated SK. The key in the term refers to a telegraph key, the instrument that all early amateur radio operators, as well as many contemporary amateur radio operators, have used to send Morse code. The term SK is used to refer to any amateur radio operator who has deceased, regardless of whether or not they were known to have actively used a telegraph key or Morse code in their communications. When transmitted as two Morse code characters without separating audio delay, SK is a Morse code prosign meaning "end of communications." [Wikipedia]
Ham Radio operators are called "Amateur" Radio operators because of of their non-commercial status, much like olympic athletes, who are not paid for their activities. The term "amateur" does not refer to their technical expertise as technicians, engineers, and operators. They are just as "professional" as those who do receive pay for their work.
By the way, the FCC recently dropped the requirement to learn the Morse code in order to obtain a Ham Radio license. If that was the only thing holding you back, you can now get your "beginner's" license by passing a simple written exam. Click here to get started.

Now on to more news and views. . .
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.

RIM Outage Makes Case for Openness
By Fabrizio Capobianco
When the majority BlackBerry users recently lost access to their e-mail, Research In Motion (RIM), the Canadian provider of mobile e-mail services behind the outage, hardly even apologized. After hours of silence, during which the rest of the world could only speculate as to the nature of the problem, they reluctantly cried mea culpa and raised a tepid defense: oh, this kind of thing happens to everyone.
Of course, they're right. Not that it's inevitable, but since most enterprise users are locked into their proprietary messaging service, when RIM's Network Operations Center goes dark, so does everyone else. Of course, that's not much consolation if your business began to suffer the moment your BlackBerry died.
Businesses did indeed suffer, but the damage wasn't limited to the end users of RIM's popular mobile e-mail. RIM itself, of course, suffered a serious blow to its reputation as a reliable service provider and rightly so, given the vulnerable design of its service, and the prompt failure of their backup systems.
But the most prominent victims of the outage also bear some of the blame, and they're hoping you don't think of them. I'm referring, of course, not to the legions of corporate "Crackberry" users addled by their addictions, but to your cellular carrier – Cingular/AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and others. Thursday was the day American carriers had to accept the realization that they had outsourced mobile e-mail, increasingly their most valuable service and the messaging format of the future, to a third party that couldn't deliver.
Carriers had to confront the extent of their own dependency on RIM. Not only were they helpless to respond to the outage, they had no idea what the underlying problem was, when it would be fixed, even if it could be fixed. To the scores of subscribers calling their service centers, all they could offer was refunds. And to all those enterprises invoking their Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and threatening performance penalties, all they could say was – please don't.
Carriers' only solace was that their respective brands have already been largely overshadowed by RIM, such that they escaped the brunt of the blame. Dubious consolation.
The good news is that solutions to this mess are on the rise, and you can bet the carriers began revamping their strategy accordingly in anticipation of what studies continue to tell us is the growing consumer demand for mobile e-mail. In this case, the key is platform standardization, a common practice in the IT industry for years.
As a member of the open source movement, I favor open standards - rigorously tested, well-understood and widely respected, common solutions that aren't compromised by secret flaws and vulnerabilities. But that's just the technologist's view.
From the operator's perspective, open source standards also look pretty lucrative. Open source mobile infrastructure will lower costs to consumer-friendly levels, restore credibility to carriers' brands and end their reliance on proprietary software they can't control.
To its credit, RIM perceives open standards to be the future, too. It recently announced the release of software to run the RIM platform on Windows Mobile and Palm-based devices such as the Treo. Jim Balsillie, RIM's co-CEO, said customers would opt for standardization rather than confining themselves to Blackberry devices.
"You have a responsibility of either supporting openness or you're not the standard platform," said Balsillie. "If you don't do this, you're really not giving the carriers and corporations what they expect."
Of course, supporting other proprietary systems is a long way from "supporting openness," but the movement toward true openness will almost certainly be an incremental shift. As open platforms rise to meet the increasing demand from consumers for commodity mobile services, competing proprietary platforms such as RIM's are destined to become outdated. The question now is, how many more mobile e-mail blackouts before there is a wholesale stampede for the open alternative?
Capobianco is CEO of Funambol.

Microsoft said to be in buyout talks with Yahoo
By John Blau, IDG News Service and James Niccolai, IDG News Service
Having lost out to Google in a bid to acquire Internet advertising company DoubleClick, Microsoft has initiated a new round of talks to acquire Yahoo, according to published reports Friday.
Microsoft and Yahoo have held informal talks in the past, with the U.S. software giant making an offer for Yahoo that was turned down, according to Friday’s New York Post, citing unnamed sources. The fresh talks suggest a renewed urgency on Microsoft’s part to make a deal, the paper said.
The companies appear to be in “early-stage discussions” over a merger or some other type of deal that would combine their respective strengths, according to The Wall Street Journal, which also reported the talks on Friday.
Financial analysts have valued Yahoo at approximately $50 billion, the Post reported. Goldman Sachs is working with Microsoft, it said.
Google announced early last month that it would buy DoubleClick for $3.1 billion in cash, bolstering the search company’s status as an online advertising powerhouse. Microsoft had also been interested in DoubleClick and was understood to have lost out in a bidding war with Google, analysts said at the time.
Microsoft and Yahoo have both been struggling to rein in Google’s lead in the search and online advertising markets. Losing DoubleClick and a few other deals to Google, including an advertising tie-up with AOL two years ago, gave Microsoft renewed interest in a merger with Yahoo, the Post reported. “They’re getting tired of being left at the altar,” a banking source told the Post.
Microsoft and Yahoo could not immediately be reached for comment. They both declined to comment to the Post, which broke the story on its Web site Friday morning.
Acquiring Yahoo would expand Microsoft’s presence on the Web and could make it easier for the software giant to attract new advertising customers. And Yahoo could benefit from Microsoft’s technical expertise, the Journal said.
Despite heavy investments in its own search engine and search ad network, Microsoft has not matched the levels of online advertising revenue that Google and Yahoo have achieved. Traffic to Microsoft’s Web sites is strong—it consistently ranks first in Web site visitors worldwide—but the company has not monetized the traffic effectively.
Microsoft and others, including two civil rights groups, have asked regulators to examine Google’s planned DoubleClick acquisition, saying it would be bad for competition in the online advertising market.

Gloucester Co. urges notification sign-up
Friday, May 4, 2007
A recent bomb scare that forced Gloucester County College to close for a day last month has prompted county officials to try to get more people to sign on to the county's emergency alert system.
The GloucesterAlert system is administered by the Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management. When an incident occurs, emergency management can notify subscribers via the technology they select when they sign up: e-mail, cell phone, text pager, Blackberry or wireless Personal Data Assistant.
The county says there are 2,100 residents currently signed up for the system and the county offers it to each school district to send messages to subscribers who sign up to their group.
"We have recently met with Gloucester County College and they are going to be undertaking a major push during their registration season to have all of their students subscribe to the system for the fall semester," said Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney on Thursday.

GTES ANNOUNCES GPS TRACKING PRICE BREAKTHROUGH WITH SVR-200
Custer, WA – May 1, 2006
GTES is pleased to announce today that it has released the latest update to the SHERLOC™ Hosted Location Services (www.sherlocgps.com), which support the SVR-200 GPS tracking device. The SVR-200 combines a high-performance SiRFstar GPS engine with wireless linking via the ReFLEX two-way data network, and provides extremely competitive pricing both for the hardware and the airtime services.
“In discussions with our customers we identified a number of applications requiring a lower-cost hardware platform combined with reduced operating costs,” stated GTES Vice-President of Marketing and Business Development Mark Pocock. “We believe that the SVR-200 price point will attract both consumer and small to medium business operators who had previously considered GPS vehicle tracking too expensive to justify”.
The SVR-200 is a 12-24V vehicle tracking device which supports scheduled or on-demand location reporting, geofences, background tracking, speed and motion alerts, external I/O connectivity, and is available with service plans for the US or Canada. When used in combination the SHERLOC™ web-based tracking service, the SVR-200 provides the means for subscribers to determine the current location of the vehicle either on-demand or on a regularly scheduled basis. Alerts can be sent to a cell-phone or e-mail account, notifying subscribers when the vehicle speed exceeds a programmable threshold, enters or exits a defined geographic area, or is stopped for more than a configurable length of time. Visibility of the vehicle location and behavior increases security, reduces operating costs, and improves the efficiency of fleet management.
“We’re pleased to add the SVR-200 to the suite of tracking solutions we offer,” stated GTES President Russ Allen. “SHERLOC™ is already gaining strong acceptance in the security industry. With the unique combination of performance and value afforded by the SVR-200, we are looking forward to addressing the vehicle tracking needs of even our most cost sensitive customers.”
For more information on the SVR-200 or SHERLOC™ please contact Brooks Marsden, VP of Sales, at 770-754-1666 or refer to our website at www.sherlocgps.com.
GTES has historically focused on providing support for Glenayre wireless messaging infrastructure and software. Recently, however the company has expanded its development activities to include wireless location technologies, a market that analysts forecast at $3.6 billion by 2010. In support of this new strategic direction, GTES has developed SHERLOC™ (www.sherlocgps.com), a complete one-stop wireless location service, which provides support for multiple asset tracking devices including the latest generation utilizing Assisted GPS technologies. Targeted at business customers who need to improve security or efficiency by tracking their high-value goods in transit or field assets, SHERLOC™ is a hosted application that provides the flexibility to support complex enterprise applications, yet is intuitive enough that a small business operator can track their mobile assets with minimal training.

Icahn steps up Motorola campaign
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Billionaire investor Carl Icahn on Tuesday stepped up his public campaign for a seat on Motorola Inc.'s board, saying the company has "suffered a critical failure in oversight and leadership."
In the letter, Icahn said he was seeking a single seat on the board and not control of the company.
"I am convinced that significant stockholder representation in the Motorola boardroom, even by a single director, is absolutely necessary at this troubled company," he said in the letter.
A Motorola representative was not immediately available for comment.
Icahn said in late January he was seeking a board seat at Motorola, which has struggled in recent quarters with weak cell phone sales that led to a first-quarter loss. He and his affiliates own over 68 million Motorola shares, or a roughly 3 percent stake, with a value of over $1.2 billion.
The Motorola shareholder vote is scheduled for May 7.
Motorola has lost about a third of its market value, or $22 billion, in the last five months due disappointing results.
Last week, two proxy advisory firms backed Icahn's effort to join the board, while a third came out against the activist investor's election bid and his turnaround plan.
The dominant advisory firm, Institutional Shareholder Services, said a need for change at the company meant shareholders should elect Icahn to the board. Another firm, Proxy Governance Inc., backed that view.
But Glass Lewis withheld its support, saying Icahn did not provide a detailed plan for overcoming Motorola's problems.
Motorola shares closed cents at $17.33.

RNID Contact Mat - keep track of your toddlers
Posted by modculture on May 1, 2007
It's not easy to keep a watch on your child every single second of the day - but the RNID Contact Mat could do it for you.
Obviously it's no replacement for being watchful, but it can help if you happen to be momentarily distracted. The pressure mat detects when even the tiniest of feet have crossed the door threshold! It then sends a signal via a transmitter to activate a vibrating pager or a flashing/audible receiver that you can carry around the house with you, or have by your own bedside at night.
It also has other uses - for example, to carers to alert that a patient has got out of bed or its original use - for deaf and hard of hearing people, to alert them to someone entering or leaving the house. Particularly relevant with Deaf Awareness Week (7th - 13th May) coming up.

BloostonLaw Telecom Update
MAY 31: FCC FORM 395, EMPLOYMENT REPORT. Common carriers, including wireless carriers, with 16 or more full-time employees must file their annual Common Carrier Employment Reports (FCC Form 395) by May 31. This report tracks carrier compliance with rules requiring recruitment of minority employees. Further, the FCC requires all common carriers to report any employment discrimination complaints they received during the past year. That information is also due on May 31. The FCC encourages carriers to complete the discrimination report requirement by filling out Section V of Form 395, rather than submitting a separate report. Clients who would like assistance in filing Form 395 should contact Richard Rubino.
JUNE 30: ANNUAL ICLS USE CERTIFICATION. Rate of return carriers must file a self-certification with the FCC and the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) stating that all Interstate Common Line Support (ICLS) and Long Term Support (LTS) will be used only for the provision, maintenance, and upgrading of facilities and services for which the support is intended. In other words, carriers are required to certify that their ICLS and LTS support is being used consistent with Section 254(e) of the Communications Act. Failure to file this self-certification will preclude the carrier from receiving ICLS support. We, therefore, strongly recommend that clients have BloostonLaw submit this filing and obtain an FCC proof-of-filing receipt for client records. BloostonLaw contacts: Ben Dickens and Gerry Duffy.

“Hook-up fee” for two-way pagers a scam, officials say
By The News-Gazette
State officials on Monday warned against a scam attempting to trick seniors into giving out credit-card numbers.
The scam involves an emergency two-way voice pager the Illinois Department on Aging's Community Care Program provides for free to help qualifying seniors continue to live independently.
According to the department, a client of the program who lives in Jacksonville received an unsolicited phone call asking for a credit-card number to pay a $399.97 "hook-up fee" to activate the service.
No such fee is required.
"The good news here is that this quick-thinking senior did not fall for this scam and was even able to jot down a phone number that may help in locating the perpetrator," said a statement from Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
Madigan and Aging Director Charles Johnson urged seniors to use common sense, and never give personal information to an unknown caller.
"It's a sad commentary on our society that as we try to help older adults live their final years in dignity that some see it as an opportunity to enrich themselves," Johnson said.

WHAT DO FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES, WISPS, HAVE IN COMMON?
THEY ALL USE NIGHTHAWK.
Nighthawk Systems Inc. manufactures low cost and reliable remote control products for fire house alerting, volunteer alerting, activation of warning signs and sirens, and a number of applications for public safety. The Company manufactures the EA1 and the FAS-8 which have been designed specifically for these applications. Both products are paging based and will work with any public or private paging network. They are available in all VHF, UHF, and 900 MHz paging frequencies. The products can serve as the primary notification system or an excellent, low-cost backup to existing systems.
The EA1 is the solution for remotely activating public warning signage. Examples include tornado sirens, flash flood warnings, fire danger, Amber Alert, icy roads, etc. The EA1 can also send text messages to scrolling signs. This can occur in conjunction with the activation of audible alarms and visual strobes. This is ideal for public notification in buildings, schools, hotels, factories, etc. The group call feature allows for any number of signs or flashing lights to be activated at the same time over a wide geographic area. In addition, the EA1 Emergency Alert is the perfect solution for low cost yet highly effective alerting of volunteer fire fighters in their home. When activated the EA1 will emit an audible alarm and activate the power outlet on the units faceplate. A common setup is to simply place the EA1 on a table and plug a lamp into the faceplate. When paged from dispatch or any touch tone phone the EA1 will awaken the fire fighter to a lit room. As an option the EA1 can be ordered with a serial cable, allowing for attachment of a serial printer. When paged the alphanumeric message will be printed out at the same time the alarm sounds and the outlet is activated. The EA1 is an ideal complement to alphanumeric belt pagers common to volunteers.
The FAS-8 is designed for activating one or more relays in a firehouse and if desired, printing the alphanumeric message to a serial printer. For this application the FAS-8 is set to activate upon receiving the proper paging cap code sent from 911 dispatch. Up to eight different devices can be activated all with individual time functions. The most common devices to turn on include the PA amplifier, audible wake up alarm, and house lights. The most common device turned off is the stove. The FAS-8 can accept up to 8 different cap codes and have separate relay and time functions per cap code. This allows for different alerting to be accomplished at the same physical location depending upon which cap code is sent. This can be very helpful when fire crews and medical crews are housed in the same building.
Put the innovative technology of Nighthawk to work for you. For more information on any of our products or services, please contact us.
