Congestion causes text message slowdown

Associated Press Writer
Fri Jan 4, 6:11 AM ET

NEW YORK - Geeta Citygirl just figured something was wrong with her phone when she realized the greetings she was sending as the ball dropped New Year's Eve weren't getting through. In Los Angeles, a half-dozen New Year's text messages bounced back to Reggie Cameron on Wednesday, more than 24 hours after he thought he sent them out.

In fact, so many people tried to send text messages on New Year's Eve that networks got jam-packed and many of the missives arrived hours later — or not at all.

"Think of any traffic artery during rush hour: You have a large number of people who are trying to access it at the same time," said Joe Farren, assistant vice president of public affairs for CTIA - The Wireless Association, a wireless industry group. "It's really no different with regard to wireless networks."

Millions and millions of messages did get through New Year's Eve, and a minor delay in a holiday wish is hardly the end of the world. But there have been multiple occasions in recent years when getting in touch with loved ones was more vital — the Sept. 11 attacks, the 2003 blackout, Hurricane Katrina.

"What happens where there is an emergency?" asked Scott Midkiff, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Virginia Tech. "This has been a big problem with the voice cellular system. It will probably become more of a problem with text messaging."

The cell phone carriers say they are working to expand their systems' capacity. Jeffrey Nelson, spokesman for Verizon Wireless, said the company invests almost $6 billion annually in the wireless network.

But the number of cell phone subscribers in the U.S. nearly doubled between the end of 2001 and the end of 2006, growing from 128 million to 233 million users, Farren said.

Analysts said last month that Americans may have spent more in 2007 for the first time on their cell phones than on land lines and pay phones. And people are using their cell phones in growing ways — for text messages, video messages, e-mail and Web access.

In an emergency, it could be a concern, Cameron said.

"I didn't have a connection using cell phones for several days, and that was really frightening," he said of living in New York after the Sept. 11 attacks. "I didn't talk to my parents for a week and a half."

"It's definitely a really big question mark," said Rajan Shah, who sent his New Year's text messages before the clock struck midnight to beat the rush. "It really makes you rethink technology and whether we are able to be connected through a global catastrophe."

Text messages already use a different transmission system from cell phone calls. There may be a way to differentiate among types of information or to create a separate system for people to use in emergencies.

Farren said emergency networks in place and now being expanded allow emergency service personnel to maintain voice cell phone service in times of need.

But that doesn't help average Joe trying to find Mrs. Joe.

The next step may be some consumer education, Farren said.

"In an emergency situation, you really should stay off your phone" if possible, he said.

Emergencies by definition are so unusual that building a full backup network could be cost-prohibitive, Farren said.

"If you're asking everyone to spend billions to billions to build a secondary network, someone's got to pay for it," Farren said.

But the wireless field is constantly changing, he noted. "As innovation continues, I'm sure some of these questions will be addressed."

It's not a strict technology issue, Midkiff said.

"It's people having to think a little bit differently about how you communicate," he said. "Maybe there's a need for some different models." [source]

Bloomfield Hills aims to tell all residents about any trouble

January 3, 2008

Bloomfield Hills is about to ask its residents to divulge their cell phone numbers, e-mail addresses, pager numbers, work numbers and even the phone numbers at their cottages and other vacation homes.

It may seem a bit nosy, but it's all in the name of public safety, officials say. In an emergency, such as a derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals through the city, they want to be able to quickly and efficiently notify every resident.

Bloomfield Hills is the latest municipality in the region to embrace the idea of informing all of its residents of a problem, which could range from a crime suspect on the loose to an approaching pandemic.

In the past, law enforcement officials traditionally concentrated their immediate notification efforts on other emergency personnel, such as officers in neighboring jurisdictions.

Increasingly, however, police and public safety operations are doling out tens of thousands of dollars to private corporations to help spread information quickly to the public.

Other institutions, such as universities, are investing in similar technology in the wake of last spring's shootings at Virginia Tech, according to Tom Hendrickson, executive director of the Michigan Association of Police Chiefs.

He doesn't know how many of his 500 member chiefs have purchased new public-oriented notification systems. But he said Wednesday that such systems are increasingly popular.

"We're gradually seeing more and more of them becoming available," he said. "It's like any other technology — it takes a long time for it to filter through the entire law enforcement system, particularly if there's a cost involved."

Bloomfield Hills is paying a Birmingham-based company called Codespear about $50,000 to set up its emergency notification system, the city's public safety director, Rick Matott, said late last month. It will cost another $12,000 or so a year to maintain the system.

Residents will have the option of sharing their contact information with authorities.

Wayne County is trying a similar system, according to Matott.

Waterford recently installed software from an Indianapolis-based company called Reverse 911, which would allow police to call people in particular neighborhoods and alert them to emergency situations.

Warren officials have considered similar systems but have yet to make a purchase.

Apple Files Patent App To Allow Wireless Ordering At Stores

iphone Apple has applied to patent a wireless ordering system that would allow shoppers to place orders from, for example, their iPhones as they approached, oh, let's say a Starbucks, bypassing an ordering line altogether and going straight to the pick-up counter. The system would also allow stores to keep data on repeat customers to speed up future transactions.

Customers might tap a button to order their favorite drink, say a double-shot mocha, as they stroll up to the nearest coffee shop. When the drink is ready go to, the device—such as an iPhone—would chime or blink to let the thirsty one know it's time to scoop up the order at the counter.

The patent puts Apple's partnership with Starbucks in a new light. The technology promises to morph Apple from the business of simply selling gadgets and music and movies that can be played on those devices into an intermediary in all kinds of exchanges.

We've seen various schemes to work cellphones into the transaction space over the years, and so far nothing's caught on. But considering how much market share the iPhone has already grabbed, we wouldn't be surprised if by this time next year we go into a Starbucks and see iPhones chiming like upscale versions of those wireless pager coasters restaurants use.

Microsoft Money Pushes Time-Lapse Space Camera Closer to Action

By Alexis Madrigal 01.03.08 | 5:45 PM

This artist's rendition of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope shows its future location on Cerro Pachon, an 8,799-foot Andean peak in northern Chile.

Bill Gates and ex-Microsoft executive Charles Simonyi have donated a combined $30 million to the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which will feature the largest digital camera ever constructed. Scientists say it will provide a "color movie" of the universe.

The donation will go partly to the construction of LSST's three giant mirrors, which will enable it to survey more of the sky faster than any other telescope. With its three-billion pixel camera, the telescope will produce 30 terabytes of images that will be immediately available to the public online.

"LSST is truly an internet telescope, which will put terabytes of data each night into the hands of anyone that wants to explore it," said Gates, who donated $10 million to the project. "The 8.4 meter LSST telescope (is) the ultimate network peripheral device to explore the universe."

Gates and Simonyi join Google as major tech industry backers of the LSST. The telescope is a showcase for demonstrating how computing power can enable scientific advances. By using three mirrors instead of two, the telescope will image more than 50 times the amount of sky as other telescopes. Its speed and wide field will allow scientists to constantly scan the sky, turning out time-lapse movies of the dynamic universe surrounding us. The ability to quickly detect changes in the sky will help scientists spot asteroids, like the one that might strike Mars this month, which scientists fear could also hit Earth with disastrous consequences.

But it won't be only heavyweight physicists who can explore the telescope's unprecedented abilities. The open-source nature of the project means that amateur astronomers will be able to harness one of the most remarkable datasets in the world, looking for comets, asteroids, supernovae and other phenomena.

"I think LSST is amazing," said Susan Gurton, education manager at the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. "The opportunity for citizens to participate in science is unprecedented right now."

Google engineers will use LSST's data to make building astronomical mashups as easy as terrestrial ones are now.

"The very same people who developed Google Sky are working with us," said Donald Sweeney, project manager for LSST. "There'll be lots of ways to access this data for everyone from college students to grade school kids to the top astronomers."

In addition to scanning the sky for dangerous incoming objects, scientists hope to use the telescope to probe some of the most fundamental questions in physics, including the nature of dark matter and energy, which we can't see but could compose more than 95 percent of the universe.

The new donations ensure that the LSST remains on track to come online in 2014 at its home atop the Andean peak of Cerro Pachon in Chile. The money is vital now because the mirrors will take five years to manufacture at the Steward Observatory Mirror Laboratory at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

The LSST requires huge amounts of data processing. Project leaders estimate it will generate 1.2 gigabytes per second, which is orders of magnitude more data than the most data-intense astronomical application available today.

When the telescope records images, clusters of computers in La Serena, Chile, a small town near the observatory's site, will process the data, said Sweeney. From there, all of the data will be shipped to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's National Center for Supercomputing Applications, which will serve as the central distribution point for physics research-level data.

Charles Simonyi is an early Microsoft employee and space enthusiast whose foundation has given tens of millions of dollars to various causes.

Intel Quits OLPC Board Over Pressure to Kill Classmate PC

Intel today resigned from the One Laptop Per Child Project's board of directors after refusing a request to abandon its Classmate PC program.

Sumner Lemon, IDG News Service
Thursday, January 03, 2008 4:00 PM PST

Intel resigned from the One Laptop Per Child Project's board of directors after refusing a request to abandon its Classmate PC program, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Intel's departure from OLPC's board means that an effort to build a version of the project's XO laptop based on an Intel processor is over, the source said.

Intel's Classmate PC is a low-cost laptop designed for students in developing countries and competes against OLPC's XO laptop, which is based on a microprocessor from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). Intel and OLPC agreed in July to work together on the development of technology for low-cost laptops and to stop disparaging each other's laptop offerings.

As part of that agreement, Intel got a seat on OLPC's board of directors and the two sides began to discuss building a version of the XO based on an Intel processor. At the same time, OLPC also explored the possibility of using an Arm processor from Marvell in yet another version of the XO.

But during discussions in the months following the July deal, OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte insisted that Intel abandon the Classmate PC effort in favor of throwing its support behind OLPC's XO device, the source said. But the Classmate PC is undergoing tests in several countries and Intel was not prepared to walk away from those efforts, according to the source.

Intel spokesman Nick Jacobs confirmed that the company and OLPC had parted ways, but declined to comment further on the matter. Negroponte and other OLPC executives could not immediately be reached for comment.

OLPC has struggled to win orders for the XO laptop. A rising price tag — now close to US$200, instead of $100 as originally planned — hasn't helped the group make inroads with cash-strapped governments in developing countries.

Clock, Paging and Messaging Systems

If you thought the trend of building technology systems evolving to the use of IP and data network infrastructure had subsided or had some limits, think again. This trend is steady and sustained as it provides lower capital and operating costs and improves functionally.

Clocks, paging and messaging systems in a building may be thought of as secondary systems. However, often times systems such as paging and messaging are part of life safety and the technology used in these systems has an implication for primary building systems such as nurse call systems in hospitals. These systems may be overlooked in many projects and in integrated building systems in general, but their evolution provides some of the best industry evidence of how and why the IP trend is long term and durable. Here are a couple examples of building technology systems that have embraced the move to IP infrastructure:

Networked LED Clocks

Clock systems are integral to education and healthcare environments, and to a lesser extent manufacturing and corporate settings. Clocking systems are used to move students from one class to another, schedule patient medications, and improve employee productivity by adhering to set schedules.

Clock systems typically have a master controller connected to the building clocks. The master controller, usually a proprietary device, provides the time over low voltage wiring connections. Some of these components can interface with other building system that require simple on/off commands over set time durations. Other clock systems are based on a wireless GPS. These systems use a wireless transmitter (usually UHF or VHF) to synchronize all of the clocks. Other clock “systems” are just stand-alone atomic clocks, offering synchronization but no management features.

clock systems Current clock systems use LED displays that connect to the data network and receive time and date information from a local or remote server. These clocks are automatically updated via the network. Power to the clock is provided via Power-Over-Ethernet (POE), thus eliminating the need for separate power supplies. The clocks are managed from a workstation on the network or a web browser, and status updates, alarms and management reports can be produced.

The IP network manages and controls clocks through two methods: (1) the Network Time Protocol (NTP) which sends the time to the clock from a local or remote NTP time server. The clock obtains the time and is sophisticated enough to compensate for daylight savings time or other offsets, and (2) the Universal Datagram Protocol (UDP) which is used to synchronize, control and configure the clocks.

The clocks are “plug and play”; it is connected to the network, then obtains an IP address and searches for a time server. Some models have a list of Internet NTP time servers on board that can the clock can query.

ntp time synchronization

What are the benefits of the IP networked clocks?

  • Consolidating building cabling to a standard cabling infrastructure and the opportunity to reduce the labor cost cable installation

  • Centralized and backed-up power to the system

  • Elimination of power supplies and high voltage power to support the system

  • Functional and flexible management of the system

The IP networked clocks are easier and more cost effective to install and operate. If that doesn't sound like a better way to install clocks in buildings - read on.

IP Paging System

Paging is also used in many educational and large healthcare, corporate and government buildings, such as airports, convention centers, etc. Legacy paging systems were typically a separate piece of equipment connected to a PBX. Speakers were daisy chained together in a paging “zone” and connected back to the paging amplifier. Access to the paging systems was through a microphone or through a special call group in the telephone system.

Current systems are built on VOIP-type technology and IP end devices, including IP speakers. The network connectivity allows authorized users to send and broadcast audio simultaneously to speakers and IP telephones. Some systems have the capability to concurrently send a multicast audio stream and text messages that can be delivered to not only paging speakers and IP telephones, but also PCs and non-VOIP telephones.

Authorized users can create paging groups, something like the legacy paging zones, but with much more functionality thus allowing the users to select particular end devices for the group. Users can control broadcasts from a PC or a web browser on an IP phone and send a live, recorded, or scheduled broadcast to one or more paging groups.

The paging system uses IP-addressable speakers, with the average speaker utilizing Power-Over-Ethernet (POE), thus eliminating the need for local power. (Paging horns, which require something in the range of 20 watts, will need POE Plus). All the speakers can be centrally controlled and managed via the network.

Some manufactures of the IP paging systems have integrated their products into contact closure devices, generally associated with an access control system to monitor which doors are open or closed. The contact closure at a door is integrated with the paging system so that an open contact can trigger a page. Another basic capability is to have a night doorbell played through the paging system.

Emergency Notification and Messaging

The digital or IP clock is basically an LED display connected to the network with software to display the time and date. However, the network LED display can be used for other functions or purposes, such as messaging and notification.

Some messages could be information on weather conditions or event reminders for organizations. More importantly, the messaging and notification can be use for emergency and crisis situations. The notification capability of the system can provide real-time communications within a building or across a campus regarding an emergency situation thus significantly improving life safety and security.

The message or notification can be sent from any authorized administrator via a network workstation or web browser. After the message display, the LED can revert back to the clock. Messages can be scheduled to run at preset times or on a recurring basis. Users can configure the duration of the message and choose to play it multiple times if desired.

The messaging and notification function of an IP clock system simply requires additional messaging software since all the hardware is already in place.

All-In-One Systems: Clock, Messaging and Paging Systems

Here’s convergence on top of converenge. Some products now in the marketplace combine clock, messaging and paging functions. Atlas Sound and others manufacture IP addressable speakers with a speaker baffle option that includes a built-in LED for clock and messaging functions and an optional microphone for communication back through the paging system. These products maximize the capital and operating savings related to wiring, power and centralized administration.

There are benefits for those with multiple buildings and networks. These systems can provide services anywhere building owner has the IP network. For example, a school superintendent can message all the schools at the same time with the same message; a CEO could do the likewise to all their offices throughout their wide area network. Management of these systems can be consolidated across facilities providing further savings and improved capabilities.

It is crystal clear that there is great value in this trend for building owners, tenants, facility managers, architects and design engineers as exemplified by these building technology systems. The small price paid by changing a design process or type of contractor will bring the real ROI: the return on innovation.

Dueling Fools: Sprint Nextel Bull

By Joe Magyer December 31, 2007

I hope you're wearing your contrarian hat today, dear reader, because the stock I'm about to make the bull case for is far from the prettiest girl at the dance.

I'm talking about Sprint Nextel (NYSE: S) , the underachieving third wheel of the U.S. wireless market. Sprint's shares have been drubbed over the past year, primarily by a mix of continued poor execution and fierce competition.

Even as the value guy I typically am, I'll admit that Sprint is quite a contrarian play. On the bright side, though, Sprint's lackluster operating performance over the past several years has left room for a quiet turnaround that is now under way. Couple that with its bargain-basement valuation, and you've got an intriguing opportunity for the patient, contrarian investor.

The turnaround
Larger, more efficient rivals AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon Wireless — joint venture between Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) and Vodafone (NYSE: VOD) — have steadily distanced themselves from the company that emerged from the 2005 marriage of Sprint and Nextel.

Sprint is working to prevent the gap from widening any further by addressing its key weaknesses. Without getting too far into the weeds, I'll say only that Sprint essentially runs two networks: its pre-merger Sprint/CDMA network and the iDEN network it inherited from Nextel. An obvious problem with such a setup is the need to continually invest in two separate networks. Sprint is seeking to solve this problem by migrating its valuable Nextel/iDEN subscriber base onto its Sprint/CDMA network, by rolling out a new push-to-talk technology on its CDMA network in early 2008. Such a move will reduce the need to invest in its iDEN network and thus save substantial cash flow down the road.

Also contributing to Sprint's malaise has been its notoriously poor customer experience, from high dropped-call rates to poor customer service. In response, the company is working on decreasing its dropped-call frequency (it just reported record performance in this area on both of its networks), adding customer-service reps, and integrating its Sprint and Nextel billing systems. These initiatives should help to curb the company's accelerating churn rate — though that hasn't happened yet. Yes, it's troubling that the company has taken so long to get the post-merger back-office operations straightened out, but I do give Sprint some credit for finally getting on track.

New blood
Another key step in the turnaround? The booting of CEO Gary Forsee, under whose stewardship Sprint had faltered. His replacement, Dan Hesse, comes to Sprint from Embarq (NYSE: EQ), a fixed-line telecom that was spun off from Sprint in 2006. The former Embarq CEO has decades of industry experience and was once the head of AT&T Wireless. He's not a sexy or splashy choice, but he's a safe one who should help Sprint get out of the blocks.

Tossing Forsee hasn't been Sprint's only recent shareholder-friendly move. The board also recently rejected overtures from South Korea's SK Telecom (NYSE: SKM), which was cleverly looking to get a toehold in the U.S. market by buying a block of distressed Sprint shares.

Finally, let's keep this all in perspective. We're talking about a company that still serves around 54 million customers and sports an impressive average revenue per user, not a USA Mobility (Nasdaq: USMO)-esque wireless player that could face extinction in a few years.

The valuation
Sprint is cheap from a historical perspective and on a relative basis to its peers — with good reason, of course, given the company's post-merger indigestion and its lackluster operating performance.

Company EV/EBITDA EBITDA Margin*
AT&T 8.3 35.1%
Verizon Communications 6.1 32.8%
Sprint Nextel 5.7 27.9%

Source: Capital IQ, a division of Standard & Poor's.
*EBITDA margin reflects trailing-12-month data.

Still, should you see Sprint's turnaround gain traction, not only would you observe rising profits and cash flows, but you'd see multiple expansion to boot. Such a one-two punch would result in significant market outperformance in the coming years.

But enough from me. Read on to Dave Mock's bear argument and beyond, and then cast your vote for the duel's winner!

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.

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.

Hi Brad,

We spoke on the phone a few times in the distant past when you were with Motorola. I use to do Onsite paging in New Zealand when I was with Motorola and then I ran my own importing company in NZ for Motorola onsite paging.

I have a Motorola PageBridge which I would like to dispose of. Do you know if anyone still uses these?
