This agency will be responsible for dealing with hackers and/or spammers. Furthermore, they will deal with Cisco, their routers and switches, and will require the following: 1. Machine Access Code or MAC address be recorded in the headers and footers of all of the data packets from the original microprocessor device. 2. Be equipped with a Global Positioning System or GPS 3. Every data packet that travels through the... more »
Satellite broadband is a rural/remote product and should be a component of the broadband initiative. Technology has improved greatly in recent years for satellite broadband. With new techniques latency is not an issue. High cost terminals have been replaced with compact, low-cost ones. Service costs mirror terrestrial counter-parts. The new satellite technologies being used in other parts of the world offer affordable,... more »
FCC Wireless Broadband, Here and now we live in a self- publishing society thanks to the Internet and related technologies. The undermining of the U.S. copyright system by peer2peer file sharing abuse is an urgent matter that needs to be addressed now before it is too late. The good news is that there is a way to strengthen the integrity of the U.S. copyright system going forward if implemented promptly. We must act... more »
In the online video gaming world the only effort seen to elevate adult gamers from children is equafax. With assumed identity never knowing the age of the other gamer and with the competiveness in game sometimes things or words get a bit out of hand. It seems the older gamers are in one category of bad for our youth and the youth who in most occasions say the worst are the victim. The ESRB ratings system is a great... more »
Not that anyone of any importance will ever see this but I will spell out my rant here with this corrupt national broadband initiative that is controlled by the big telco giants. Thsi plan should have been paid to the millions on an individual basis to be able to get high speed satellite internet and not paid to the telco's since they are doing nothing more than upgrading the services to those in gated or upscale communities... more »
Everyone can offer up idea after idea on this message board, but we should all consider the agenda behind the "broadband expansion" effort. The "means" to the "ends" do matter. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who is opposed to having broadband internet available virtually anywhere in the country. However, there are two greater issues to consider. First, our national debt and the interest on the debt... more »
Commercial wireless networks should never be used for Smart Grid applications.
Have you considered turnign the presentations into Podcasts that can be downloaded onto Ipods? Apple should be excited to support this effort.
I believe, that if a company such as GM or Ford were to invest in mass transit for the US, in the form of bullet train. This would create jobs and increase the economy.
Satellite cost/speed offerings currently available do not meet the broadband needs of rural communities. Satellite is still the most cost effective way to reach areas of extremely low population density. Identifying those for whom Satellite is the most effective means of providing broadband (with a reasonable 5m/1m speed and subsidizing it through a revamped Universal Service Fund is one solution. The subsidies would... more »
I would like to bring out that the electric coops are putting broadband thru out rural America right now thru one ISP. They are wireless to connect the property to the system so they don't have problems with the last mile. This is to accomplish the goal of broadband in rural America. Since I have been on them in June 2007 they only went down about 4 times which isn't bad for a service. The problem is they compete with... more »
Commercial wireless broadband networks of the future should include prioritization schemes so that public safety and critical infrastructure data traffic using these networks has a high degree of likelihood of transmission during times of congestion.
We need to recognize that mobile computing is now a reality. Rather than allowing schools to buy cell phone jammers we should encourage them to employ smart phones for educational purposes. Imagine if students always have the opportunity to learn wherever they are. A GIS system coupled with locational-aware datasets could make this possible. When they go to the skatepark they could find out how many injuries have occurred... more »
Build the physical broadcasting towers and rent space to telecommunications companies so we don't have multiple towers standing next to each other.
The FCC has been tasked with developing a National Broadband Plan by February 17, 2010, and has requested input. Most of the comments filed to date deal with a myriad of technology issues rather than approaching the creation of this plan based on the economic constraints that must be overcome in order to provide broadband to as much of the U.S. population as is practical. 2. The goal of providing broadband... more »
