Dear Friends of Wireless Messaging,

The new Paging Service Provider Directory (button above) is starting to take shape thanks to the many submissions this week by readers. This will allow anyone looking for paging service, a chance to browse the Directory and look for a service provider. All are invited to check out the Directory and send me comments, corrections, and additions. Some, who responded to my plea for help this week, supplied me with the contact information for their own company and other service providers as well. Thank you all very much.

Here is an example of the many positive responses that I have received to my request for help with the Directory project:

OK students, here is a lesson from history for the current-day managers of paging companies:

Old Steamboat Days on The Hudson River

The rivalry for the speed record became so great between two of the boats, the Oregon, owned by George Law, and the Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned by “Commodore” Vanderbilt, then running on Long Island Sound, that a race for $1,000 a side was arranged between them, which took place on the Hudson River on June 1, 1847. The Vanderbilt was a new boat. The race started at the Battery and both boats got away at eleven o’clock, a great throng of people being on hand to witness the contest. For thirty miles up the river the boats kept side by side, but the Oregon passed the Vanderbilt as she approached the stake boat off Ossining and was half a length ahead at that point. In passing the Vanderbilt, the Oregon was bumped by her rival and damaged her wheelhouse considerably.

On the way down the river the Oregon’s coal gave out, but the captain and crew resorted to tactics that had been followed before, in the days of exciting steamboat racing. The woodwork of the berths, chairs, benches, furniture of staterooms and everything else that would burn was put under the boilers to keep up steam. She finished the race at the Battery about twelve hundred feet ahead of the Vanderbilt, having covered the seventy miles in three hours and fifteen minutes with the tide against her going north and with her on the return. The owners of the Oregon got the $1,000 stake and possibly expended more than that restoring the joiner work on their boat. [source]

I shouldn't have to explain the analogy, but I believe that it is fairly obvious that some paging companies are burning up their assets—for short-term results—while destroying the long-term viability of their businesses—and damaging the whole industry in the process. Everyone is entitled their own opinion, and this is mine.

Be sure to read about the new Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha. (They didn't even offer me the job.)

His base salary is no less than $1.2 million. He will receive 3.7 million restricted Motorola shares, worth approximately $35 million at the Aug. 4 stock price. He also receives loads of stock options. Think Jha might rethink the spin-off? Think again. In the event of a spin-off, Jha would receive stock and option awards giving him a 3% stake in the company. In other words, if the new company achieves a $1 billion market cap, Jha gets $30 million in equity. If it reaps $2 billion, he pulls in $60 million. And if the spin-off does not happen before Oct. 31, 2010, Motorola will still give Jha $30 million in cash. [source]

Motorola: The New CEO's Real Challenge

Co-CEO Sanjay Jha has strong experience in wireless, but his most important task is dismantling the mobile-phone unit's bureaucratic culture

by Roger O. Crockett and Olga Kharif

August 4, 2008, 7:52PM EST

New Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha

There's no question what Wall Street thinks about Motorola's (MOT) new co-chief executive, Sanjay Jha. The communications conglomerate's shares jumped 11% to nearly $10 on Aug. 4 after announcing the former Qualcomm (QCOM) chief operating officer would take the reins of Motorola's mobile-phone business. Jha brings loads of industry experience and extensive familiarity with wireless investors, ending the Schaumburg (Ill.) company's five-month search for an executive to head the troubled cell-phone unit. "He is the perfect guy for Motorola," says Mark McKechnie, an analyst with American Technology Research, who worked at Motorola years ago. "If anyone can turn this handset division around, it's Sanjay Jha."

Still, for all of Jha's experience, he faces one huge challenge: Motorola's corporate culture. For the cell-phone unit to recover, Jha will have to fully cleanse Motorola of its sluggish, bureaucratic ways and teach a company that has long let engineers drive product development to think more like marketers, in tune with consumer tastes. It's a challenge that has proved insurmountable for several top Motorola executives.

Jha will take over the mobile-phone unit immediately. He will act as co-CEO with the current top executive, Greg Brown, until the mobile-phone business is spun out as a separate company. That move is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2009.

Motorola's history is marred by marketing missteps. When the industry shifted from analog phones to digital in the mid-1990s, executives and engineers at Motorola underestimated the significance of the shift, stumbled in introducing digital phones, and then lost their lead in the market to a Finnish upstart called Nokia (NOK). Then as the pace of product cycles quickened in recent years, Motorola's plodding culture contributed to its inability to deliver new phones to market as quickly as competitors.

Every CEO who has run the company since Gary Tooker took over in 1993 has attempted to infuse the company with more entrepreneurial DNA. Under Edward Zander, who left in December, Motorola managed to hasten the production of a new slim phone, which became the spectacularly successful Razr. But leadership could not keep pace when consumers turned their attention away from hardware to an increasing focus on the software that bestows new functionality on phones. Motorola also fell behind as the industry shifted to so-called 3G phones, optimized to surf the Internet and handle multimedia such as music and video. Jha's daunting task: Keep the troops in better touch with the market and "get new products to market quickly," says Richard Windsor, an analyst with Nomura.

Jha, an engineer by training, sounds hesitant to overhaul the company's deep-rooted engineering culture, however. "I think the engineering culture is a tremendous asset to Motorola," he told BusinessWeek in an interview. "I think the challenge is to make that culture stay in tune with the marketplace. When it's a problem is when it gets disconnected with the marketplace. And my job is to keep it connected." Jha says he'll take 90 days to assess the situation before making any final decisions.

Jha has plenty of motivation to tackle the challenge. His base salary is no less than $1.2 million. He will receive 3.7 million restricted Motorola shares, worth approximately $35 million at the Aug. 4 stock price. He also receives loads of stock options. Think Jha might rethink the spin-off? Think again. In the event of a spin-off, Jha would receive stock and option awards giving him a 3% stake in the company. In other words, if the new company achieves a $1 billion market cap, Jha gets $30 million in equity. If it reaps $2 billion, he pulls in $60 million. And if the spin-off does not happen before Oct. 31, 2010, Motorola will still give Jha $30 million in cash.

Can he make a lasting difference where others couldn't? His reputation at Qualcomm is stellar. Under his leadership as COO, the company's chip division grew into the largest mobile chip business in the world, with $5.7 billion in sales last year. It's grown much faster, in fact, than the chip businesses of top competitors such as Texas Instruments (TXN). While Qualcomm's chip sales rose 74%, from $3.2 billion in 2004, most top rivals' revenues only grew 20% to 30%, according to consultancy iSuppli. "He's a very talented guy," says Qualcomm's Len Lauer, who will replace Jha as COO at the chipmaker. "He has strong carrier relationships and he knows the competition."

Jha's experience in innovation could prove to be the most helpful at Motorola. Qualcomm is known for staying one step ahead of rivals in incorporating extra capability into its products. One Qualcomm chip often replaces two or more of a competitor's components, analysts say. Jha is one of the people most responsible for this corporate foresight. He was the point person for developing the company's road maps, and plotting forays into new wireless technologies. "He understands the wireless industry market and how to implement [upcoming developments] in hardware," says John Lau, an analyst with Jefferies Group (JEF).

One thing is certain: Jha can't turn around Motorola on his own. Among his first priorities will be to attract the best and brightest from around the industry to lead execution in areas where he doesn't have deep experience. Motorola has lost several top executives, especially some talented marketing and product sales executives to the likes of Apple (AAPL) and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIMM). "He's going to have to get some top-notch people," one former executive told BusinessWeek. "The guys there now are the same guys that have not produced product for several years."

Jha is well-connected in the industry and told analysts on a conference call that he would do extensive recruiting for major talent. One draw some industry observers suggest for down the road is to move the phone unit from its current location in the northwest suburbs of Chicago to the West Coast, where there is a tech culture with hundreds of companies and workers that move at a more brisk pace. Jha lives in the San Diego area and Motorola has operations there, as well as in the San Jose area, that could serve as a starting point to move development and resources. "The most important thing they need is a sense of urgency," says the former executive. "He may go to Chicago and six months later decide that [raising the level of urgency would come] by moving at least part of the management team to the West Coast."

Wherever the phone unit is located, Motorola executives seem to understand that the company has to change its ways to drive better results. "Sanjay has very rigorous operational discipline and he knows the processes here that have been inconsistent," says co-CEO Brown. Resurrecting Motorola's mobile-phone unit will be a daunting task, but Jha's convinced that he's up to it. "This is unique opportunity," he says. "And I really feel that I can make a difference."

Sprint Nixes Debt Deal

By Rhonda Wickham
WirelessWeek - August 08, 2008

Sprint canceled its $3 billion convertible preferred stock sale intended to help pay down its debt because it didn't like how the deal was priced.

The interest on the financing reportedly wasn't attractive to the Tier 1 operator, and it decided it didn’t need the money badly enough.

During the operator’s Q2 results call earlier this week, Sprint said it would use the proceeds from the convertible sale to help reduce its $24.3 billion in debt. Despite canceling the stock sale, the operator reiterated its plan to reduce gross debt by at least $1 billion by the end of Q3.

The beleaguered operator has been struggling for the better part of two years to get back on track after a steady and substantial subscriber exodus. During this week’s earnings call, the operator showed some improvement in customer retention, but still recorded a net loss of 901,000 subscribers for the quarter. During the same quarter, competitors AT&T and Verizon Wireless gained 1.3 million and 1.5 million new subscribers, respectively.

First responders get more emergency communications options

NIST develops 'breadcrumb' communications prototype; Motorola offers multi-band radio

By Matt Hamblen

August 7, 2008 (Computerworld) Emergency response teams may be getting more help on the radio communications front, in the form of a prototype "breadcrumb" system developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology as well as a new multi-band radio from Motorola Inc.

NIST announced this week that it had demonstrated its prototype two-way radio communications system for emergency crews making their ways into buildings, mines, tunnels and other structures in response to fires and collapses. The demonstration was held at a workshop for emergency responders on Tuesday at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass.

In a newsletter, NIST said the system features smart multi-hop relay devices, called breadcrumbs. The relay devices run software that can notify emergency crews when they need to place another of the breadcrumbs along their route to extend the range of communications down a hallway or tunnel.

The system uses off-the-shelf microprocessors and other standard hardware along with the NIST-developed software, which monitors the status of radio communications signals. NIST said the software can rapidly assess the strength of the signal that emergency workers are receiving, so they can get an alert before they walk out of range and lose contact with the last relay device.

Currently, workers such as firefighters sometimes lay down conventional breadcrumb relay devices in certain standard locations, such as stairwells, or at a set distance from one another in a corridor. But such approaches don't take into account all the environmental variables that can degrade a communications signal, according to Nader Moayeri, a member of NIST's development team.

The NIST researchers used computer simulations of a wide number of emergency scenarios as part of the development process, Moayeri said. The agency, which is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, developed two versions of the prototype system, one for the 900-MHz communication channel and the other for the 2.4-GHz channel. NIST said it is willing to share the prototypes with businesses and other organizations working on first-responder communications systems.

On Monday, meanwhile, Motorola introduced its APX line of multi-band radios, saying that the devices support both voice and data transmissions and offer multi-agency interoperability for emergency response workers. The APX line works in the 700-MHz, 800-MHz and VHF bands, runs across FDMA and TDMA networks, and includes integrated GPS capabilities.

The new radios, the fourth generation of Motorola's P25 technology, are 15% smaller and 50% louder than its existing devices, according to the company. A custom-designed microphone suppresses background noise and uses a digital processor to enhance speech, said Motorola, which announced two models: a portable radio for workers to carry, and a mobile unit that can be fixed in police cars and other vehicles.

A Motorola spokesman said the device took three years to develop and was built with input from first responders, especially with its interoperability features in mind. Different entities responding to disasters tend to use different radio frequencies, although federal officials have allocated more than $5 billion this year for police, fire and other first-responder agencies to use to buy equipment furthering interoperability.

Motorola made its interoperability announcement at the annual conference of the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials in Kansas City, Mo. Verizon Communications Inc.'s Verizon Business unit also used the conference to announce a service that utilizes Cisco Systems Inc.'s IP Interoperability and Collaboration System, or IPICS, to provide communications capabilities across various devices via private IP networks.

Nothing Phony About Free 3CX VoIP Phone Offer

3CX has announced the release of a totally free new VoIP phone that allows users to make and receive calls from their computer using popular VoIP providers or SIP servers.

August 4, 2008 (FPRC) — 3CX has announced the release of a totally free new VoIP phone that allows users to make and receive calls from their computer using popular VoIP providers or SIP servers. 3CX VoIP Phone, unlike other free soft phones, has a straight forward, business-style interface and includes important business features such as call transfer.

Nick Galea, CEO at 3CX said: '3CX VoIP Phone is great for businesses that wish to have an easy to deploy, business-level VoIP soft phone. Because it is free, the usual hassle of administration of client licenses is avoided. The free editions of other VOIP phones do not have key features such as call transfer or the ability to put a call on hold.

'VoIP Phones are an interesting option for businesses – they are easy to administer and environmentally friendly. Hardware phones require additional electricity, administration and desk space.'

3CX VoIP Phone has a user-friendly and intuitive interface with dial pad and buttons that make transferring or forwarding calls a breeze. It also allows users to review their history of calls, put calls on hold, to easily accept, reject or ignore calls with a mouse click, and much more.

Launch calls from Microsoft Outlook – without re-typing the number

One of the key features of 3CX VoIP Phone is its integration with Microsoft Outlook. Users can launch calls directly from their contacts’ list within Outlook by just right-clicking on the name of the person they wish to call. There is no need to dial any telephone numbers since Outlook functions as 3CX VoIP Phone’s address book.

Other features of 3CX VoIP Phone

  • Supports several SIP profiles
  • Shows personal call log/history – ideal for salespeople
  • Message Waiting Indication (MWI)
  • Supports G.711 (A-Law and u-Law), GSM, iLBC and Speex codecs
  • STUN support for NAT/firewall traversal
  • Installation provided as MSI for easy deployment

Key advantages of 3CX VoIP Phone

  • Completely FREE – no license fees or hidden charges for use of advanced features
  • Not proprietary – can be used with most popular IP PBXs and VoIP providers
  • Quick and simple installation
  • Easy to use via an intuitive user interface with dial pad and buttons
  • Environmentally friendly

The new 3CX VoIP Phone can be downloaded totally free of charge from:

The Verizon Communications Interoperability Solution, is designed to resolve the deep-seeded impasse in emergency communications between public safety organizations operating on incompatible networks.

The service will employ Cisco devices and applications to complete the interoperable networks.

While other companies--such as Raytheon--already offer interoperable devices that similarly link diverse communications, Verizon is the first major carrier to implement service and support for such systems. Public safety management is rarely trained to initiate and maintain interoperable networks, so Verizon's considerable national presence will be an attractive element of its pitch to interested public safety organizations.

Verizon will demonstrate the solution this week at the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials' annual conference in Kansas City.

Sending One-to-Many Voice Messages from Mobile Phones

Phonevite To Go assigns unique numbers for sending recorded messages to groups of recipients.

by Robert Poe | July 24, 2008
VoIP News

It's a superb example of the democratization of telephone technology.

Politicians routinely call around dinnertime to tell you in their most affable voices how much they are counting on your vote. The spiels are of course recorded, and allow the campaigns reach far more people in a far friendlier way than they otherwise could. Ifonoclast Inc.'s Web-based Phonevite service makes that awesome power to reach multitudes with a single message far more democratic, letting ordinary citizens send similarly friendly recordings to groups of people they know. And now it lets them do so even when they're away from their computers.

How It Works
Phonevite's service is of course more about personal than political connections. It lets people send messages to friends, family and colleagues more quickly and conveniently than they could any other way. It's easy to use, and the basic version can deliver each message to up to 25 people for free. Simply record a message using your computer microphone or via a call Phonevite will place to your phone for that purpose. Indicate the phone numbers to which you wish to deliver the message, and click "send now."

When recipients answer their phones, they hear the message and can respond in different ways. If you've checked the RSVP option, they can reply (to an invitation, for example) by pressing 1 for yes, 2 for no, and 3 for don't know. If you've checked "message back," they can record a spoken response for you. They can also press the pound sign to hear the message again, or press 9 to block all messages from your number in the future, a reassuring feature for those concerned about potential phone spam.

No Need for Computers
Phonevite To Go is the new beta service that makes it possible to send such messages without being at a computer. You set it up by going online and creating a call group of numbers to which you want to send messages. Choosing that group and clicking "Enable Go To number" generates a unique phone number representing the group. From then on, you can call that number from whichever phone you have registered with Phonevite, and record a message that Phonevite will then deliver to the group. That means you can put the number in your mobile handset's phone book, for example, and inform group members of changed plans or other urgent matters almost instantly.

The service has several advantages over other methods of communication. It's easier than text messaging, for example, and recipients don't have to be using mobile phones. They also don't need to be at a computer as they do with email. And they don't have to dial a number to hear the message as they would with some similar services. "We think this kind of service can be widely adopted, especially with the To Go feature," said Phonevite CEO John Nahm. "A call can instantly reach many people without having to use text messages. We would like to see this become another communication option like email and texting."

Who Will Go for It
Phonevite is focusing on appealing to grassroots community users and organizations, according to Nahm. One reason for doing so is that there are strict restrictions on the use of automated calling for marketing and similar commercial purposes. Some business uses are fine, however, such as notifying employees of meetings and conference calls. Utilities can also use the service to notify both customers and employees of incidents such as pipeline breaks.

A lot of noncommercial organizations, such as churches, Scout troops, schools and soccer teams are currently using Phonevite to provide routine notifications to members, Nahm said. And some of the most creative uses are from individuals, who are sending things like baby announcements, updates on the health of ailing family members and changes in golf plans.

Phonevite's premium service boosts the maximum number of recipients of a single message from 25 in the free version to 2,000, at a cost of 5 cents per completed call. Nonprofit organizations receive a 20 percent discount, to 4 cents per message delivery. Compared to the cost of people missing meetings, or showing up at the wrong place or time, even the full premium rate is a bargain.

Live Look at Motorola Alexander Sliding Smartphone

Tuesday August 5, 2008 10:26 PM CDT
By: Michael Kwan

Mobile Magazine

motorola alexancer Some people say that the Motorola Alexander smartphone is going to be Moto's white knight in shining armor. We've heard inklings about this handset already, but this is one of the first live pictures that we've been able to find of the upcoming Windows Mobile smartphone.

As you can tell, the Motorola Alexander (the name will change for sure) is a slider phone, likely with a large touchscreen display. When you slide out the bottom portion, you are treated to a full QWERTY keyboard that is probably about the same size as what you get on a BlackBerry or the Motorola Q9h. In fact, the keys remind of a Treo for some reason.

The rumored spec sheet makes mention of Windows Mobile 6.1, but it's quite possible that Alexander will be doing the Windows Mobile 7 dance by the time it goes live. Other features include a 5-8 megapixel camera, NVIDIA chip for 3D graphics, aGPS, and a Q4 2008 release date.

August Edition of the "Wonder of Wireless" Webcast Now Available

WASHINGTON, DC – Wireless farming, a quick-thinking law enforcement officer, and an update on wireless legislation on Capitol Hill are featured segments in this month's "Wonder of Wireless" (WOW) webcast, produced by CTIA-The Wireless Association®, and now available for viewing. The webcast includes several video segments that highlight a variety of wireless related topics involving the mobile enterprise, emergency rescues, significant public policy milestones, and much more.

The August WOW webcast features a "Mobile Enterprise" segment that focuses on the innovative ways wireless is transforming farming operations in America. John McKee, a farmer in the Mississippi Delta region who uses wireless technology to automatically steer his tractors, explains how precision steering creates greater efficiency in tilling fields, harvesting crops, and saves him time and money.

This month's webcast also highlights a one-on-one "Insider Interview" with CTIA Vice President of Government Affairs, Jot Carpenter, who provides a legislative update on three important wireless-related bills being considered in the U.S. Congress and where they stand during the August recess. The "Wireless Lifesaver" story recounts the heroic efforts of an Indiana law enforcement officer who used his training and education about wireless technology to help locate two missing people, and the WOW Policy Point" takes a look at the topic of consumer privacy.

Another element of the August WOW webcast is the #3 U.S. Wireless Moment, as selected by visitors to; the FCC licenses cellular service as a competitive duopoly instead of a monopoly in 1981, a decision that helped transform the approach to delivering telecom services in the U.S. by allowing competition to enter the market.


CTIA is the international association for the wireless telecommunications industry, representing carriers, manufacturers and wireless Internet providers.

Positron Public Safety Systems Launches the Emergency Communication and Collaboration Platform with Cisco

The new standard in Citizen-to-Authority and Authority-to-Authority Communications

Last update: 10:09 a.m. EDT Aug. 4, 2008

MONTREAL, Aug 04, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Positron Public Safety Systems (PPSS), an IPC company, announced today the launch of the Emergency Communication and Collaboration Platform (ECCP), an IP-based solution for global, regional and local public safety agencies. The ECCP integrates PPSS's VIPER (Voice over IP for Emergency Response) with Cisco Unified Communications Manager solutions. Additionally, PPSS is announcing that VIPER has met the Cisco Technology Developer Program criteria for interoperability with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager product, version number 6.

The mission of public safety agencies is to protect and serve their communities. Legacy emergency calling systems are no longer sufficient to meet the growing needs of citizen-to-authority communication, considering the multiple forms used by today's citizens, including VoIP, video, e-mail and SMS messaging. Citizen-to-authority emergency communication services must evolve to work with the technologies citizens use.

The PPSS Citizen-to-Authority Emergency Communication and Collaboration Platform that is integrated with Cisco's Unified Communications Manager delivers a fully integrated IP-based capability that handles all citizen-to-authority emergency communications. The platform is designed to strengthen public safety access points immediately and evolve, over time, into fully realized IP-based Emergency Communication and Collaboration Centers — the dawn of the EC3.

"Current PSAP's need a path to migrate towards a future set of capabilities consistent with the new NET 911 Act, calling for a national migration plan to IP-based emergency communications. There is clearly an opportunity to converge voice, video and data into a mission-critical environment" said Jeff Vining, Vice President for public safety research at Gartner. "Using IP is a cost-effective approach to modernizing current operations, while at the same time delivering inherent disaster recovery benefits to provide a truly resilient environment."

"At PPSS we are pleased with the ongoing success of our Voice over IP for Emergency Response (VIPER) solution. With over 400 agencies serving over 1,800 positions installed, and growing, VIPER is helping our customers to gracefully move towards the utilization of IP for their emergency call handling services. Our collaboration with Cisco Systems is a further testament to the flexible design of the VIPER platform and our commitment to enable IP services within the public safety community" said Darrin J. Reilly, President, Positron Public Safety Systems, Inc. "It is an important time in our history and it is exciting to be setting the standard to meet the evolving needs of public safety agencies locally, and around the world."

The Cisco Technology Developer Program sets criteria for interoperability testing by independent third parties and enables leading product and services firms to deploy innovative business solutions. The program provides enterprise or service provider customers with information regarding Cisco products and services that an independent testing facility has tested and found to interoperate with Cisco networking technology.

Sprint eyes sale of Nextel's iDen network

Sinead Carew , Reuters
Published: Friday, August 08, 2008

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sprint Nextel Corp is considering a sale of the Nextel wireless network it bought in 2005, but may have trouble finding a buyer for an asset whose value has plunged about 80 percent to an estimated $5 billion.

Sprint has struggled to integrate Nextel's iDen network, used by public safety and construction workers, with its own services and has lost millions of customers since paying about $35 billion for Nextel Communications three years ago.

Any buyer would find it tough to reverse the now-completed integration of the iDen business, including its billing, broadcast towers and customer service, analysts say.

"They spent the last few years trying to integrate it," said Stifel Nicolaus analyst Chris King. "There are a lot of questions that a buyer and the government would have to have."

Sprint, the No. 3 U.S. mobile service, already faces pressure from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to relinquish a key chunk of iDen wireless airwaves for emergency communications networks.

About 14.6 million subscribers, or 28 percent of Sprint's total 51.9 million customers, were exclusively using the iDen network at the end of the second quarter. Another 1.7 million used phones working on both iDen and CDMA networks.

Sprint said in a regulatory filing this week that it was exploring alternatives for iDen that include "improving operations, making additional investments, entering into strategic partnerships and considering potential divestitures."

CNBC said on Friday that Latin American service provider NII Holdings Inc., which uses iDen technology, or private equity investors may be interested in the network.

Sprint shares rose 7.7 percent, also helped by its surprise decision on Thursday to cancel a $3 billion convertible share sale that had been unpopular with shareholders.

Sprint and NII, whose shares fell 0.25 percent, were not immediately available for comment.

Analysts said it made sense for money-losing Sprint to look for ways to improve its finances, even though it does not face an imminent liquidity crisis. Sprint ended the second quarter with $23 billion debt, and cash and marketable securities of $3.5 billion.

"Every piece of the business is for sale at a certain price right now because they continue to struggle," said King.

But he noted that an investment in the iDen network, rather than an outright purchase, could make more sense for NII, which operates in countries such as Mexico and Brazil that have faster wireless growth rates than the United States.

The iDen network has faced technical issues that Sprint says it has fixed, but the network's customer cancellations have been exacerbated by the weakening U.S. economy. In the fourth quarter, Sprint took an impairment charge of $29.7 billion to write off the majority of the value of Nextel.

Universal Detection Technology Lands Olympics Deal for Radiation Detectors

By Arvind Arora
TMCnet Contributing Editor

August 08, 2008

Universal Detection Technology, a company that offers counter-terrorism consulting and training services and develops early-warning monitoring technologies, is providing radiation detection equipment for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Devices supplied by the company were sent to Beijing ahead of the Olympic Games, and will be able to detect Gamma and Neutron Radiation.

The Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG), was concerned about providing firm security in all aspects for the Olympics, and the committee planned to deploy 80,000 security personnel for the Olympics.

Liu Shaowu, Security Department Director, BOCOG, said that the committee finished more than 52 schemes and more than 500 specific plans for security, transportation, fire-fighting, anti-terrorism and VIP protection to ensure that Beijing hosts safe Games.

The security equipments provided by UNDT will be crucial in search and identification of gamma and neutron radioactive materials; the appliances are capable of identifying isotopes and classify them into different categories: medical, industrial, natural occurring radioactive materials (NORM) and special nuclear materials (SNM).

The instruments are high sensitive and able to verify any alarm triggered by a fix-installed monitor or by a radiation pager, to locate sources and measure radiation levels. First responders, border control staff, customs inspectors and site security personnel in critical infrastructures will be equipped with these instruments.

   Vol. 11, No. 31 August 6, 2008   


FCC Orders Comcast To End Discriminatory Network Management Practices

At its August 1 open meeting, the FCC determined that Comcast’s management of its broadband Internet networks contravenes federal policies that protect the vibrant and open nature of the Internet. Ruling on a complaint by Free Press and Public Knowledge as well as a petition for declaratory ruling, the Commission concluded that Comcast has unduly interfered with Internet users’ right to access the lawful Internet content and to use the applications of their choice. Specifically, the Commission found that Comcast had deployed equipment throughout its network to monitor the content of its customers’ Internet connections and selectively block specific types of connections known as peer-to-peer connections. The FCC vote was 3-2, with Commissioners Deborah Tate and Robert McDowell dissenting. There was no fine.

The Commission’s action is the result of an examination of conduct that was first brought to light by Comcast subscribers who noticed that they had problems using peer-to-peer applications, such as BitTorrent, over their Comcast broadband connections. When first confronted with press reports about these difficulties, the FCC said, Comcast disclaimed any responsibility for its customers’ problems. However, the Commission said, after tests conducted by The Associated Press and Electronic Frontier Foundation suggested that Comcast was selectively interfering with attempts by customers to share files online using peer-to-peer applications, Comcast changed its story and admitted that it did target its subscribers’ peer-to-peer traffic for interference.

The FCC said that Comcast initially claimed that it did so only during periods of peak network congestion and of heavy network traffic. Later, the FCC added, confronted with yet more evidence suggesting that interference was not limited in this manner, Comcast recast its position yet again and admitted that it interferes with peer-to-peer traffic regardless of the level of overall network congestion at the time and regardless of the time of day. The Commission’s extensive investigation into this matter – which included two public hearings, substantial input from experts, and thousands of comments from companies, organizations, and the public at large – confirms that Comcast’s interference is far more invasive and widespread than the company first conceded, the FCC said.

The Commission concluded that Comcast’s network management practices discriminate among applications rather than treating all equally and are inconsistent with the concept of an open and accessible Internet. The Commission noted that Comcast has an anticompetitive motive to interfere with customers’ use of peer-to-peer applications. Such applications, including those relying on BitTorrent, provide Internet users with the opportunity to view high-quality video that they might otherwise watch (and pay for) on cable television. Such video distribution poses a potential competitive threat to Comcast’s video-on-demand (VOD) service.

The Commission also concluded that Comcast’s practices are not minimally intrusive, as the company claims, but rather are invasive and have significant effects. The Commission found that Comcast monitors its customers’ connections using deep packet inspection and then determines how it will route some connections based not on their destinations but on their contents. In essence, Comcast opens its customers’ mail because it wants to deliver mail not based on the address on the envelope but on the type of letter contained therein, the FCC said. The Commission also found that Comcast’s conduct affected Internet users on a widespread basis. Indeed, Comcast may have interfered with up to three-quarters of all peer-to-peer connections in certain communities, the FCC said.

The Commission concluded that the end result of Comcast’s conduct was the blocking of Internet traffic, which had the effect of substantially impeding consumers’ ability to access the content and to use the applications of their choice. The Commission noted that the record contained substantial evidence that customers, among other things, were unable to share music, watch video, or download software due to Comcast’s misconduct.

The Commission rejected Comcast’s defense that its practice constitutes reasonable network management. While Comcast claimed that it was motivated by a desire to combat network congestion, the Commission concluded that the company’s practices are ill-tailored to serve that goal for many reasons: they affect customers who are using little bandwidth simply because they are using a disfavored application; they are not employed only during times of the day when congestion is prevalent; the company’s equipment does not target only those neighborhoods suffering from congestion; and a customer may use an extraordinary amount of bandwidth during periods of network congestion and will be totally unaffected so long as he does not utilize an application disfavored by Comcast.

The Commission said its determination that Comcast was not engaging in reasonable network management is supported by the overwhelming weight of expert testimony in the record. For example, Professor David Reed of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, widely respected as one of the architects of the Internet, said that “[n]either Deep Packet Inspection nor RST Injection” — Comcast uses both to manage its network — “are acceptable behavior.”

The Commission also concluded that the anticompetitive harms caused by Comcast’s conduct have been compounded by the company’s unacceptable failure to disclose its practices to consumers. Because Comcast did not provide its customers with notice of the fact that it interfered with customers’ use of peer-to-peer applications, customers had no way of knowing when Comcast was interfering with their connections. As a result, the Commission found that many consumers experiencing difficulty using only certain applications would not place blame on Comcast, where it belonged, but rather on the applications themselves, thus further disadvantaging those applications in the competitive marketplace.

The Commission also reiterated that its interest is in protecting consumers’ access to lawful content. Blocking unlawful content such as child pornography or pirated music or video would be consistent with federal Internet policy. The Commission announced its intention to exercise its authority to oversee federal Internet policy in adjudicating this and other disputes regarding discriminatory network management practices with dispatch, and its commitment in retaining jurisdiction over this matter to ensure compliance with a proscribed plan to bring Comcast’s discriminatory conduct to an end.

Under the plan, within 30 days of release of the Order Comcast must:

  • Disclose the details of its discriminatory network management practices to the Commission
  • Submit a compliance plan describing how it intends to stop these discriminatory management practices by the end of the year
  • Disclose to customers and the Commission the network management practices that will replace current practices

To the extent that Comcast fails to comply with the steps set forth in the Order, interim injunctive relief automatically will take effect requiring Comcast to suspend its discriminatory network management practices and the matter will be set for hearing.

In a separate statement, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said: “The specific practice Comcast was engaging in has been roundly criticized and not defended by a single other broadband provider. If we aren't going to stop a company that is looking inside its subscribers’ communications (reading the “packets” they send), blocking that communication when it uses a particular application regardless of whether there is congestion on the network, hiding what it is doing by making consumers think the problem is their own, and lying about it to the public, what would we stop? Failure to act here would have reasonably led to the conclusion that new legislation and rules are necessary.”

Commissioner Michael Copps said: “While today’s Order represents important movement forward, it is not a full substitute for the fifth principle that I believe we must adopt. A clearly-stated commitment of non-discrimination would make clear that the Commission is not having a one-night stand with net neutrality, but an affair of the heart and a commitment for life. That’s what something so precious as this technology deserves. A fifth principle will provide the needed reminder to all—long after the details of this case become blurry history—that the Commission’s policy of network openness is ongoing and its remedies are always available. It’s a pretty safe bet there will be other complaints about nondiscrimination coming to the Commission. A fifth principle would reassure those bringing such complaints that they will receive the same kind of Commission attention that the Comcast complainants received. A fifth principle should also, in my opinion, apply to wireless as well as to wireline networks. In sum, formal Commission adoption of a fifth principle of Internet openness would proclaim and sustain Internet users’ right to all the freedom that network openness provides.”

Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein said: “In many ways, today’s approach should ameliorate the concerns of critics who have argued that protecting Internet freedom will lead to overbroad mandates that cannot anticipate changes in technology. First, it makes clear that the protections of the Internet Policy Statement extend only to lawful content; hence, this Order does nothing to prevent providers from, for example, restricting access to child pornography or content that violates copyright law. Second, here we limit our findings to the narrow issues before us. Third, we choose a path that preserves the Commission’s flexibility to consider alterative approaches and technologies. Even many opponents of legislation and rules in this area have supported a case-by-case approach like the one adopted today. Finally, through this adjudication, we have followed a thorough and open process: seeking comment from all parties, conducting open hearings, gathering information and analysis from all sides. Although I support taking this action, I do appreciate my colleagues’ willingness to craft this item in a way that preserves the Commission’s ability to adopt rules at a later date, which was critical to my support of the item.”

Commissioner Deborah Tate, in her dissent, said: “I ` applaud the Chairman for focusing the Commission’s and the public’s attention on this issue, and for using it as a vehicle for hearings around the country over the past year. In addition to educating ourselves, I believe these forums have served an important role in outreach and education of the public as they navigate this ever-changing technological revolution. Through these efforts, the Commission has been able to shine a light on particular practices and consumer concerns, and the private sector has responded. Had we continued down our generally deregulatory path regarding information services, we would have not taken the more interventionist approach adopted in this item, which is unnecessary given the industry-wide actions already underway, as well as the specific, ameliorating steps taken by the company to address the allegations in the complaint at hand. Therefore, I respectfully dissent.”

Also dissenting, Commissioner Robert McDowell said: “Even if the complaint was not procedurally deficient and we had rules to enforce, the next step would be to look at the strength of the evidence. The truth is, the FCC does not know what Comcast did or did not do. The evidence in the record is thin and conflicting. All we have to rely on are the apparently unsigned declarations of three individuals representing the complainant’s view, some press reports, and the conflicting declaration of a Comcast employee. The rest of the record consists purely of differing opinions and conjecture. As the majority embarks on a regulatory journey into the realm of the unknowable, the evidentiary basis of its starting point is tremendously weak, to the point of being almost nonexistent. In a proceeding of this magnitude, I do not understand why, in the absence of strong evidence, the Commission did not conduct its own factual investigation under its enforcement powers. The Commission regularly takes such steps in other contexts that, while important, do not have the sweeping effect of today’s decision.”

FCC OKs Verizon-RCC Merger, With Conditions

The FCC has approved with conditions, the transfer of control of licenses held by Rural Cellular Corporation (RCC) and its subsidiaries to Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless (Verizon Wireless).

In analyzing Verizon Wireless’s proposed acquisition of RCC and its subsidiaries, the FCC said it examined the market for mobile telephony services and concluded that the companies had demonstrated that the merger, with certain conditions, will be in the public interest. However, based on a case-by-case analysis which determined that there was a potential for competitive harm in the six markets listed below, the FCC is requiring that one of the two companies divest the licenses and related operational and network assets in those markets.

The markets identified are: Burlington, VT; New York 2-Franklin; Vermont 1-Franklin; Vermont 2-Addison; Washington 2-Okanogan; and Washington 3-Ferry.

Overall, the licenses and authorizations transferred in the merger include Cellular licenses, Broadband Personal Communications Service (PCS) licenses, Local Multipoint Distribution Service licenses, Local Television Transmission Service licenses, Common Carrier Fixed Point-to-Point Microwave licenses, and two international authorizations.

PageOne on the pulse with exclusive paging channel for blue-light services

page one August 6th 2008 – PageOne, the UK’s leading messaging technology company, has launched ‘pulse’, a priority paging channel specifically dedicated to blue-light organisations. This new paging channel offers automatic and sophisticated priority routing and dynamic bandwidth controls to ensure emergency messaging traffic is maintained without disruption, during periods of exceptional load and crisis.

The dedicated emergency channel is freely available only to PageOne’s paging customers who operate blue-light emergency applications. PageOne will issue new access codes to approved customers to access the ‘pulse’ Emergency Channel Service and immediately start benefiting from prioritised messaging. ‘pulse’ operates on all of PageOne’s radio paging frequencies, and messages can be generated using either PageOne’s ‘Connect’ or ‘flare’ applications or the emergency services own command and control systems.

“Since 7/7 PageOne has worked even closer with hospitals, councils, local and central government to continually improve communications for blue-light applications”, said Chris Jones, CEO, PageOne. “We are positive that the blue-lights will wholeheartedly embrace ‘pulse’. It adds an extra peace of mind to an already resilient paging network negating any likelihood of public/consumer overload in emergency situations. It also demonstrates our commitment to investment and innovation in ensuring paging remains at the forefront of critical communications for the public sector.”

The need for ‘pulse’ emerged after the London 7/7 bombings in which the review by the London Regional Resilience Report identified that organisations must not rely on mobile phones for critical functions in a crisis, and a need for dedicated communications that will work without fail in an emergency. More information on Pulse can be obtained from

nighthawk logo





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.

nighthawk sign

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.
