Wi-Fi In The Crosshairs


In 1999, European countries started plans to auction spectrum for 3G. To better understand the brouhaha dates back to 2004, when Verizon launched a political broadside against Philadelphia wireless. Demonstrate that the influence means the Verizon Pennsylvania Governor Ed Randell to sign a law banning MuniWireless initiatives unless the local municipality or agency first offered the service responsible for the ability to deploy their own network. That the owner had all these years to deploy a broadband network and does not simply mean the irony no trump political force.

MuniWireless was now officially in the crosshairs of the establishment of telecommunications. Taking City Hall is one thing. But assuming the telecommunications business creation, and big cojones groundswells not enough. Especially when the ISP depends on the same holder to provide fixed network connectivity to wireless base stations.

In 2005, Diana Neff - the lady behind Wireless Philadelphia - explained to me the economy:

- Instead of Capex related payments, the city government becomes the anchor.

- Energy, the locations of base stations provided for free.

- ISP to offer free Internet access in homes, offices at commercial prices.

- Free Internet access in open parks.

- Subsidized Internet access for the weaker sections.

Does your sufficient funds to make noise with running voice covers fully amortized and ownership of a load able to cherry peaks where to put their DSLAMs? If all goes well.

- Recurring revenues are a kick-off bitch.

- If municipalities pay for the equipment and become anchor tenants, MuniWireless have money, then wait the gestation period required for recurring monthly revenue for stacking.

- If municipalities will not pay for the equipment, they have to fork out that the anchor stores. If neither MuniWireless operation goes bust.

- Again, the same economy are not applicable to a mobile player because 2G networks are comfortably amortized and ubiquitous service.

- Special services of the incumbent are the basis for MuniWireless economy. In comparison, WiFi burn is a pittance and all you have for the economy to work is less strict and sincere respect with Neff model.

It is safe to say that, in addition to a continued dependence on outgoing backhaul, the basics of formula Neff are not respected as Internet service providers like EarthLink sought cityscapes light America. In a race to escape a dead business dial-up, they were signed to the same speed that taking place. In 2007, the city refused the lease anchor and deliver a double blow by asking for free services, if the ISP should be allowed to treat the population of the city.

MuniWireless teething problems "and to have more to do with a possible bad economic management and hostility established that Wi-Fi technology. The same WiFi, for example, works wonders for your T-Mobile Wi Service -Fi @ home by connecting your WiFi at home and thousands of WiFi hotspots from T-Mobile to your cellular network. This service is WiFi corner to the door of the establishment of telecommunications.

So someone may have screwed MuniWireless but WiFi is not the criminal.

Seeing the intention of T-Mobile there is no WiFi as WiFi. In 2005 on the Wi-Fi repairs to cellular networks, suggesting UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) as a method for cell phone companies to co-opt and WiFi bring true broadband in the Kingdom without invest in questionable 3G network. If the cell phone companies have been too slow / reluctant / hostile to technology does not mean that the technology was not there. Wi-Fi is the tip of an iceberg OFDMA WiMax and WiFi-connection is what will shake the next network. Do not expect to see an operator WiMax think a lot about the advantages and disadvantages of connecting to a Wi-Fi network on the edges on a common IP backend. The first victim of these ubiquitous prints with high-speed wireless Internet access mobile broadband wireless applications will be tinkering like a Blackberry. If you sit at Starbucks, walk to your car with your Frappuchino or driving home, you can directly access your e-mail server / service for a minimum 2-5mbps.

There are some very dedicated people who work hard in the IEEE as part of the IEEE P802.21 Working Group to develop standards for these vertical (cell - Wi-Fi) and horizontal connections (WiFi, WiMax). The standard should be completed by 2008 at which WiFi begins its true role as owner of the board. As the former telecommunications fighters have learned at great expense, which is where the winning lottery ticket hidden.

For a non-owner, the sense of a WiFi-centric company must comply with the economic arguments made in those Articles.
