Posted · Add Comment

Sorry all, been working on several projects at once and haven’t had much free time to make updates. Then I realized that the registrar had changed something that made hitting the site hard. (I still can’t see it in Safari yet.)  I will be making updates soon too BTW.           Happy […]


Reinvention of The Communications Infrastructure Universe

Posted · Add Comment

Apparently I’m on some unintentional quest to piss just about everyone off in this world. What I mean is, last week I mentioned that I thought the network operators were going the way of the dinosaur and so now I need to see this through… have to go all the way. A little background: I have been […]


The Curious Case of Small Cells/HetNets

Posted · Add Comment

First a brief history of time… (props to Stephen Hawking) I remember the curiosity and excitement for the future I had when I first went hands on with the mobile wireless data freedom that IBM field technicians had back (first recognizable outside IBM as the Advanced Radio Data Information System [ARDIS] 800MHz 2 way network) in the […]

5G? 5G? You kidding me? You talking about 5G?

Posted · Add Comment

More frequently, I see media comments about 5G or hear questions about 5G wireless technology. I mostly ignore it ,but as there’s steady increases in the amount of daily hype around it, I’m wondering why?

Time to Change The Small Cells Business Model

Posted · Add Comment

A long long time ago, in a galaxy… in 2003 at Samsung, we were trying to sell our small cell vision to carriers, and carried demos all over the country.  Everybody agreed it was pretty awesome but the adoption for deployment was just not very good at all. Later, I worked with a couple of […]

Wireless + Non-Serial Entrepreneurs = Parallel Wireless

I’ve been really busy building things and talking to people but one announcement made me cheer. Parallel Wireless is combining several elements such as HetNet, backhaul, LTE, SON and some Software Defined Networking (SDN) concepts into a product.      (No, this image has nothing to do with that.)   They are introducing what they […]
