To keep that from happening, Sirius and XM had asked the FCC to consider imposing more regulations on Wi-Fi makers, including forcing them to put some controls on these spurious signals. The FCC is not required to act upon their request. It's a fact of life that radio signals can't be as tightly controlled as a signal traveling through a wire. Bits of signals are always straying, and as more people hook up Wi-Fi networks, there will be more of these "spurious" signals, enough to breach the buffer between the two, Sirius Satellite Radio co-founder Robert Briskman said during earlier interviews.
But Wi-Fi proponents, including gear makers and network operators, don't believe there will ever be an interference problem, so they believe they shouldn't have to face more regulations or add something to their equipment that could increase the cost, Two satellite radio stations are no longer trying to get the FCC to muzzle the transmissions of the growing number of wireless networks in homes and offices using the 802.11 standards, Satellite radio stations and 802.11 wireless networks both broadcast their signals on radio waves separated by only a small tangled iphone case buffer, So far, that buffer has kept the millions of 802.11, or Wi-Fi, networks from interfering with radio broadcasts by radio broadcasters Sirius Satellite Radio or XM Satellite Radio..
CNET también está disponible en español. Don't show this again. But many industry insiders say otherwise. "GPRS should have been low-hanging fruit," said John Diehl, president and chief executive of PrairieComm, which makes cell phone chips. "But there's been a lot of stumbling.". "GPRS phone rollouts haven't been as successful," said Research in Motion Chief Financial Officer Dennis Kavelman. RIM is selling a GPRS version of its popular BlackBerry pager in Europe and the United States. "GPRS is incredibly complex. There have been delays all across the board," he said.
Openwave Systems Chief Financial Officer Alan Black started the year thinking it would be a busy one for GPRS, He was expecting 250 wireless carriers worldwide building wall-to-wall GPRS networks in their coverage areas, But now he thinks the tangled iphone case number of GPRS networks completed in 2002 will be less than 100, "Operators are investing in GPRS on a slower pace than once thought," Black said, Sutcliffe believes U.S, carriers have set more realistic expectations, "I don't sense momentum has decreased, just that people's expectations are getting more realistic," he said..
Oh gee, here comes 2.5GGPRS is the data delivery arm of cellular telephone networks using the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) standard, which is at the core of between 70 and 80 percent of the world's telephone networks. GPRS is supposed to provide Web download speeds slightly faster than those from a typical dial-up Internet connection like AOL. Wireless carriers choosing GSM have little--if any--alternative than to use GPRS if they want to evolve to the much-hyped third-generation (3G) networks promising wireless download speeds of at least 144kbps, according to Kim Thompson, a spokeswoman for VoiceStream Wireless.
