EWA views its mission as a frequency advisory committee as facilitating the delivery of the benefits of wireless technology, in compliance with FCC rules, and through the proper allocation and use of spectrum that properly adapts to the technology sought by the end user.
By Tom Sorley — I challenge my fellow radicals to start looking at developing an avatar-like technology that is capable of processing massive amounts of information, learning the preferences of its assigned user, and presenting the appropriate information at the right time.
By David Kahn — Earlier this year I attended NIST’s 700 MHz Public Safety Broadband Demonstration Stakeholders Meeting, where very smart people presented their visions for the national LTE/4G network. However there seemed to be a few elephants in the room that largely were ignored.
By Scott Tschetter — A movement is afoot to add a proprietary encryption protocol called advanced digital privacy, or ADP, to Project 25 systems across the country. However, in so doing, users are at risk of losing federal grant funds.
By Donald Denning — Shortly the members of the FirstNET board of directors will be selected and they will begin to form their team, which will begin with the always positive and exciting orientation phase.

Readers should know that the EWA will be an active participant in any and all proceedings that may have consequences for the business/industrial licensees that make up at least 16 ounces of the T-Band flesh Congress decided to extract.
By Al Gillespie — No one wants to see public safety lose any spectrum. But in the end, this was a negotiation, one that was quite delicate, and public safety needed to show its good faith by agreeing to Congress’s request to give back the T-Band.
By Bob Schassler — The real power public-safety LTE broadband communications promise to deliver — better connectivity and virtually unlimited mission-critical data directly on a responder’s handheld device, wherever and whenever it’s needed.
