FRIDAY - MARCH 16, 2007 - ISSUE NO. 253

Dear Friends of Wireless Messaging,

This week's newsletter is a little late and a little short. I almost didn't send it out at all.

Sometimes I wonder why we are ever mean to each other. Yesterday a fellow I know here in Illinois committed suicide. He was the husband of my wife's best friend and a deeply troubled person. It reminded me of how important it is for us to show kindness to others. We never really know what is going through another person's mind and how much they may need our help.

“Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear with yours. Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.” —Phillip Brooks

Instead of becoming angry when someone does something that we don't like, or is unfriendly to us, we should remember that they may trying to deal with some really difficult issues in their own personal life.

Some days, Paging just doesn't seem to be all that important in the grand scheme of things.

The AAPC Forum will take place again this year in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, May 30-June 1 and the EMMA Conference will be April 25-26 at the Hilton Hotel in Malta. I hope we can have a lot of cross visitation again this year. Members of EMMA are invited to attend the AAPC event (at member rates) and vice versa.

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.

Los Angeles Deploys Motorola's MOTOMESH™ Network for Public Safety and Wireless Connectivity

Friday March 16, 8:30 am ET

Motorola technology helps improve community safety and bridge digital divide

LOS ANGELES, March 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Motorola, Inc. today joined Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Chief of Police William Bratton to unveil a municipal wireless network and video surveillance system in the city's Jordan Downs public housing complex. The wireless network is a part of a project designed to help curb criminal activity and provide a safe environment for residents in one of the city's most notorious high-crime public housing areas. The system also eventually will expand to supply public wireless broadband access to residents and schools in the area.

The deployment was spearheaded by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in a partnership with the United States Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Easy to deploy, scalable and cost-effective, the network encompasses 10 wireless video surveillance cameras and the Motorola MOTOMESH network. MOTOMESH is a multi-radio wireless broadband network that provides WiFi access for the public and enables first responders with critical communications through separate, dedicated and secure access. The Motorola Canopy® wireless broadband solution provides backhaul for the network.

The network provides public safety users with wireless broadband access to critical applications and live video surveillance feeds using Motorola Mobile Video Sharing. With Mobile Video Sharing, officers are able to use their laptop computers or handheld devices to pan across surveillance locations and even zoom in and out on suspected criminal activity, allowing the officers to increase situational awareness and presence in the community. Additionally, Los Angeles city fire units that respond to calls in Jordan Downs will also have access to video feeds provided by the system. The network will also be used to provide residents and public schools in the Jordan Downs area with WiFi access to the Internet.

"Motorola's wireless broadband network allows our officers to have information when they need it most to manage an incident, to inform first responders as they arrive at a scene aware of what they will face, and to use video to size up an uncertain situation," said Chief Bratton. "Since the cameras were installed, major crime has dropped 32 percent in Jordan Downs in the last two months, compared to the same period last year."

A complete end-to-end solution, MOTOMESH leverages Motorola's patented mesh networking technology to provide visibility in key areas and extend analysis capabilities by recording events for evidentiary and scenario planning use.

"Los Angeles Police Department officials now have access to real-time information to help prevent situations from occurring or escalating. The ability to share critical data with other first responders, security, and operations agencies further enables quick and effective response to situations," said Rick Neal, North America's vice president of strategy and business development for Motorola. "We are excited to leverage our experience in deploying outdoor mesh networks to help bridge the digital divide for residents and government workers in Jordan Downs."

The MOTOMESH system supports up to four radio networks in a single access point. It enables complete municipal-wide wireless connectivity in both 4.9GHz licensed and 2.4GHz unlicensed frequencies, allowing municipalities to serve diverse communities of interest without the risk of interference. The MOTOMESH radio architecture allows municipalities to provide dedicated bandwidth, network connectivity and security for municipal WiFi, public works and public safety users over a single integrated wireless infrastructure, supporting eGovernment initiatives.

MOTOMESH and Canopy are part of the Motorola MOTOwi4™ portfolio of wireless broadband solutions and services that create, complement and complete IP networks. Delivering IP coverage to virtually all spaces, MOTOwi4 includes wi4 Fixed, wi4 Mesh, wi4 Broadband over Powerline, and wi4 WiMAX solutions for private and public networks.

The Event

The network will be announced and demonstrated today, March 16, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. PDT simultaneously at the Jordan Downs public housing district and the LAPD's South East division station. Mayor Villaraigosa and Chief Bratton will be joined by Motorola officials to unveil the network to residents.

NetworkWorld: IEEE approves next 802.11n draft

By John Cox, Network World

The IEEE 802.11n Working Group this week approved draft 2.0 of the standard, paving the way for 100+Mbps wireless LAN products as early as this summer.

Just over 83 percent of working group members cast their vote to approve the draft, well over the minimum 75 percent needed. The vote indicates that after more than a year of often acrimonious debate, the group has finally coalesced behind the core technology.

One practical effect is that vendors of WLAN adapters and access points can now introduce products that should require no substantive changes when the final standard is authorized, probably in the fall of 2008.

The Wi-Fi Alliance last year said it was preparing an interoperability testing program for draft 2 equipment. Alliance officials said then that if as expected draft 2 was approved in this month, testing could begin in June 2007 or earlier. The Alliance will certify and brand WLAN products as draft 2 compliant, reversing a long-held policy to only test products that comply with a final IEEE standard.

The heart of the new standard is a technique called MIMO, for multiple input multiple output. MIMO takes a stream of data, separates it via some digital signal processing magic into several streams and transmits it over two or more antennas. The streams are received by two or more antennas and re-assembled into the original. But because of how this is done, and the way MIMO antennas exploit radio reflections called multipath, much more data can be packed into these transmissions.

The IEEE standard originally called for a minimum of 100+Mbps throughput. But so-called “draft 1” or “pre-11n” products already on the market are delivering 140-160Mbps. With more antennas, more power and other tweaks, many vendors say they expect to achieve over 200Mbps, sometimes much more.

At the regular IEEE 802.11 plenary this week, in Orlando, one attendee was network security guru Matthew Gast. In his blog, Gast reported that of the 325 eligible voters, 306 voted. Of that number, 231 approved the draft, 46 voted against, and 28 abstained. Four votes were invalidated. Draft 2 received 3,163 comments roughly evenly divided between editorial and technical comments. Those indicate that there may be some additional changes to the draft over the coming months, but they are likely to be minor.

Two Apple products feature support for 802.11n—the already-released AirPort Extreme Base station and the forthcoming Apple TV

Text Of McCain’s S.744 Bill Spells Out Public Safety Plan For 700 MHz Spectrum

The text of S.744—U.S. Senator John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) Spectrum Availability for Emergency-Response and Law-Enforcement to Improve Vital Emergency Services Act or the SAVE LIVES Act—spells out a proposal to make more spectrum available to public safety, and to establish a Public Safety Interoperable Communications Working Group to provide standards for public safety spectrum needs, among other things. As we noted last week, McCain’s bill is similar to the Frontline Wireless proposal to auction a block of 700 MHz spectrum under a conditional license whereby the winning bidder would have to meet public safety specifications to operate a national, interoperable public safety broadband system. If the auction does not produce a successful winning bidder, however, the McCain bill calls for a Public Safety Broadband Trust, as proposed by Cyren Call (BloostonLaw Telecom Update, March 7).

As we reported last week, public safety groups have given the McCain measure a cool reception because they prefer a 30 megahertz license in the 700 MHz band granted directly to a Public Safety Broadband Trust. In short, the public safety community is wary of having a “commercial” or “conditional” licensee addressing public safety needs. This lack of public safety support will not help McCain’s proposed legislation. Nor will the unrealistically short time lines that the measure calls for (as seen below). The proposed bill also appears to cap the cost of the spectrum at $5 Billion, when it is expected to fetch much more at auction. Both the McCain bill and the Frontier and Cyren Call proposals threaten to hinder the progress of the Balanced Consensus Plan, thereby jeopardizing the chance for small and rural bidders to gain realistic bidding targets.

Text of S.744

The Working Group: Title I of the McCain bill would require the Chairman of the FCC and the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish a public safety interoperable communications working group to provide continuing advice and counsel to the Chairman and the Secretary with respect to public safety interoperable communications. The Working Group would consist of the following:

(L) The President of the National League of Cities.
(M) The President of the National Sheriffs' Association.
(N) The Chair of the National Volunteer Fire Council.
(O) The President of the United States Conference of Mayors.
(P) The President of the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Association.
(Q) The President of the International Municipal Signal Association.
(R) 4 members to be elected by a majority of members described in subparagraphs (A) through (Q)—

(i) at least 1 of whom shall be a representative of the critical infrastructure industry; and
(ii) at least 2 of whom shall be persons with experience in the commercial wireless industry.


(A) The following individuals, or their respective designees, shall serve as Federal members:

(i) The Chairman of the FCC.

(iv) The Secretary of Defense.
(v) The Secretary of Transportation.
(vi) The Attorney General of the United States.

(B) ATTENDANCE AT MEETINGS- Any Federal member may appoint a subordinate officer of their agency to attend meetings of the Working Group on the behalf of such member.

Duties of the Working Group—The duties of the Working Group are as follows:

(1) To create, and report to the FCC, not later than August 1, 2007, specifications for the development of a national public safety broadband network on the 30 MHz band of recovered analog spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 747 megahertz and 762 megahertz and 777 megahertz and 792 megahertz) reclaimed by the FCC under section 3003 of the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005 in preparation for the auction of such spectrum by January 28, 2008, including—

(A) establishing appropriate build timetables, coverage areas, service levels, performance criteria, and other similar matters for the deployment of such network to ensure that such network will meet mission-critical public safety communications requirements;
(B) setting forth specific performance criteria that ensures such network will receive support reliability along with security and redundancy at every level of network performance;
(C) reviewing and approving open standards for equipment and usage that will support upgrade and technology development on such network;
(D) considering the use of “commercial off-the-shelf”
solutions that may promote competition between multiple equipment vendors that may result in lower prices for public safety users of such network;
(E) establishing terms of service for the use of such network that—

(i) permits public safety users to preempt use on such network in the event of a national emergency;
(ii) provides capacity throughput latency; and
(iii) allows such network the ability to support large numbers of users in a cell in the event of a national emergency;

(F) providing that any equipment or applications used on such network is interoperable with broadband equipment or applications used on the 24 MHz band of spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 764 megahertz and 776 megahertz and 794 megahertz and 806 megahertz) allocated to public safety services under section 337(a)(1) of the Communications Act;
(G) establishing a user fee schedule that takes into consideration the limited resources of State, local, and tribal governments;
(H) assessing, in partnership with any licensee of any part of such network, network construction and testing; and
(I) performing compliance review and monitoring of

(2) To assess the performance of the licensee of any part of such network over the term of the license granted to such licensee.

(3) To advise and report to the FCC whether such licensee is complying with the requirements of the license granted to such licensee.

(4) To take such other action as the Working Group may from time to time determine to be necessary, appropriate, or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Act.

The bill also sets forth provisions for management, quorums, and authorizations of appropriations for the Working Group through fiscal year 2013.

Title II of S.744 requires the FCC to (1) complete its Eighth Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (In the Matter of Implementing a Nationwide, Broadband, Interoperable Public Safety Network in the 700 MHz Band; Development of Operational, Technical and Spectrum Requirements for Meeting Federal, State and Local Public Safety Communication Requirements Through the Year 2010) (PS Docket No. 06-229; WT Docket No. 96-86)); and (2) issue rules allowing certain channels within the current 24 MHz band of public safety spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 764 megahertz and 776 megahertz and 794 megahertz and 806 megahertz) to accommodate data communications.

Under Title III of S.744, it is the sense of Congress that the 30 MHz band of recovered analog spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 747 megahertz and 762 megahertz and 777 megahertz and 792 megahertz) reclaimed by the FCC under section 3003 of the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005 in preparation for the auction of such spectrum by January 28, 2008, should be available to Federal, State, local, and regional public safety organizations (including all Federal agencies, such as the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the United States Secret Service, and the United States Marshals Service) for a national, interoperable broadband network.

Preparing for Auction: Not later than 45 days after the date of enactment of the McCain bill, the FCC shall issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to determine how the spectrum should be allocated for auction. The rulemaking shall be completed by July 1, 2007.

Not later than August 2, 2007, the FCC shall make available to the public, for notice and comment, the report of the Working Group (relating to specifications for a national public safety broadband network).

Not later than November 1, 2007, the FCC shall issue, based on the report received from the Working Group, a final report establishing the specifications for a national public safety broadband network.

Responsibilities of Successful Bidder: Any successful bidder for any part of the spectrum, prior to making a bid for such spectrum, agrees to implement and comply with the specifications concerning the development of a national public safety broadband network established by the FCC.

Not later than January 28, 2010, the FCC, in conjunction with the Secretary of Homeland Security, shall report to Congress on the development of such a national public safety broadband network, including a description of the successes and failures of the successful bidder in implementing the provisions of this section.

Not later than 2 years after the date of enactment of this Act, and every 2 years thereafter, the FCC shall report to Congress on the compliance of the successful bidder for the spectrum in implementing and adhering to the specifications established by the Commission.

Default Provision: In the event that the auction does not produce a successful bidder, the FCC may grant a license for the use of such spectrum to the Public Safety Broadband Trust Corporation, which is neither an agency nor establishment of the United States Government or the District of Columbia Government. The bill establishes the mechanism for establishing the Trust and the board of directors, with federal and non-federal members, as well as the duties and responsibilities of the board. Keep in mind that this default provision only kicks in if there is no successful winning bidder during the auction.

Purchase of License: Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the license that may be made available for purchase by the Corporation in the manner authorized by this section, shall be at a price determined by the FCC not to exceed $5 billion.

Loan Guarantees: The FCC shall have the authority to enter into an agreement with the Corporation to provide, and to issue, guarantees of loans to the Corporation to provide funds for—

(A) the acquisition of the license for the construction, management, and operation of the advanced broadband public safety network authorized by this Act;
(B) the establishment of a broadband public safety network in less densely populated, rural areas; and
(C) for other operating funds of the Corporation.

The bill also establishes that the principal amount of all outstanding loans guaranteed at any one time shall not exceed, in the aggregate, $10 billion, not more than $5 billion, of which shall be used to fund the purchase price to be paid by the Corporation for the license for the spectrum to be auctioned. No loan guarantee may be made after December 31, 2020.

Finally, nothing in S.744 shall affect, or be construed to affect, the spectrum auction date of January 28, 2008, as such date was established under the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005.

Title IV of the bill requires the following reports:

1. Not later than 2 years after February 18, 2009, and every February 18th of each odd-numbered year thereafter, the FCC, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and either the Working Group or the Corporation shall, jointly, after allowing time for notice and comment, prepare and submit a report to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, on the efficiency and effectiveness of the public safety use of the 24 MHz band of spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 764 megahertz and 776 megahertz and 794 megahertz and 806 megahertz) allocated to public safety.

2. Not later than 3 years after the date of enactment of this Act, the FCC, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Working Group shall, jointly, prepare and submit a report to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, on how during the next 15 years public safety organizations can—

(1) end their use of Land Mobile radio spectrum below 512 MHz; and

(2) begin to use either—

(A) the 30 MHz band of recovered analog spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 747 megahertz and 762 megahertz and 777 megahertz and 792 megahertz) reclaimed by the Federal Communications Commission under section 3003 of the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005 in preparation for the auction of such spectrum by January 28, 2008;

(B) the 24 MHz band of spectrum (encompassing that part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 764 megahertz and 776 megahertz and 794 megahertz and 806 megahertz) allocated to public safety services under section 337(a)(1) of the Communications Act; or

(C) the spectrum in the 800 MHz band.

3. Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, the FCC, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Working Group shall, jointly, after allowing time for notice and comment, prepare and submit a report to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, on whether Internet Protocol-enabled solutions could aid interoperability.

Dear EMMA Members and Friends,

This email is a reminder for you to register for EMMA's next Conference if you have not already done so. It will be held on April 25-26 at the Hilton Hotel in Malta . Please make sure that you reserve your room at the Hilton using the attached form before 31 March to benefit from the discounted EMMA room rates. The form should be completed and faxed to 00356 21 386 629.

Also attached you will find the updated program of the Conference and registration forms.

Malta, is a full member of the EU and is one of the faithful adopters of paging in Europe, thanks to its network operator Telepage — a venture established in the 1990s between Maltacom and Mtel/SkyTel and a founding member of EPPA and EMMA. Malta is also a beautiful and hospitable island, a land of inspiration. And this is exactly the quest today for every professional in wireless communications. inspiration.

In spite of the ongoing convergence between technologies, the existing high market penetration in mobiles is making growth increasingly challenging. At the same time, the bargaining power of users has also strengthened. It is therefore more imperative than ever before for network operators and manufacturers to protect their respective markets by enhancing their skills to master loyalty among their customers. Technological innovation is important, but customer-focused strategies confer even greater weight to competitiveness.

The objective of this Conference is, therefore, to tap into the experience and new ideas of those members of our industry who have successfully developed such strategies, and get inspiration from leaders in other sectors, whose know-how can be transposed to address the concerns of the paging world. We have speakers from EMEA, the Americas and Australasia who, through their experience will, bring insight to the event and create opportunities for further synergies and business cross-fertilization.

We would also like to encourage participation of corporate and government end-users of paging, as well as solution developers — they, after all, are key stakeholders in our industry -— so please feel free to circulate this invitation widely among your contacts.

We are confident that you will support this event with your presence and usual enthusiasm.

Best regards,

Derek Banner Jacques N. Couvas

DaimlerChrysler to Install Nighthawk Systems Units

Units to Help Manage Heat in Trenton Engine Plant

SAN ANTONIO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Nighthawk Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:NIHK), a leading provider of intelligent wireless power management and emergency notification solutions, announced today that it has received an initial order for customized wireless power control units to be used by DaimlerChrysler to control the venting of heat in their Trenton, Michigan engine plant. The 2.1 million square feet plant covers 136 acres and contains hundreds of exhaust fans that control the venting of heat from the plant. DaimlerChrysler approached Nighthawk with the assistance of American Messaging, asking for help with remotely controlling the fans. Nighthawk is developing custom units that will be installed at the plant, allowing DaimlerChrysler to wirelessly control the exhaust fans from almost anywhere inside or outside of the plant.

The Nighthawk units will eliminate expensive wiring costs for DaimlerChrysler, and will enable plant officials to turn on and off the fans remotely in order to balance the amount of heat exiting the plant. This allows DaimlerChrysler to better manage the environment within the plant based on external factors such as weather as well as on internal factors, such as lighter product loads during holiday schedules.

H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I’m extremely pleased with the opportunity to assist DaimlerChrysler with this opportunity, and look forward to potentially building a larger relationship with them. The Nighthawk name is becoming more recognized as we assist more and larger companies with their control needs. I’m also extremely pleased that our partnership with American Messaging has fostered this opportunity. Their existing relationship with DaimlerChrysler, as well as with Nighthawk, enabled this deal to come together. Our relationship with American Messaging is paying off as they expand our sales reach with their nationwide network of sales personnel that have existing relationships with enterprise customers that can benefit from using our products.”

In September 2006, Nighthawk announced that they and American Messaging had agreed to join forces to provide telemetry solutions to enterprise customers utilizing American Messaging’s wireless network. American Messaging is the second-largest paging company in the United States with approximately 1.5 million customers, providing network coverage in 98 of the top 100 markets and in all 50 states.

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.

Public Emergency Notification & Volunteer Alerting

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.

Firehouse Automation

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.

Our association currently uses Echostar, formerly Spacecom, for distribution of our data and a large percentage of our members use the satellite to key their TXs. We have a CommOneSystems Gateway at the uplink in Chicago with a back-up running 24/7. Our paging coverage area on 152.480 MHz currently encompasses Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Kansas. The TAPS paging coverage is available to members of our Network on 152.480 MHz for $.005 a transmitter (per capcode per month), broken down by state or regions of states and members receive a credit towards their bill for each transmitter which they provide to our coverage. Members are able to use the satellite for their own use If you are on 152.480 MHz or just need a satellite for keying your own TXs on your frequency we have the solution for you.

TAPS will provide the gateways in Chicago, with Internet backbone and bandwidth on our satellite channel for $ 500.00 (for your system) a month.
