About

As the wireless industry has grown in size and importance, so has the amount of hype and misinformation associated with it. This is true for both the business and technical aspects of wireless products and services. Our aim is to focus on the technical misinformation and attempt to provide the type of information which will enable the reader to sort out truth from fiction.

Wireless technology has been around for more than a century and a lot of knowledge is available about how to build wireless devices and how to evaluate their performance. It is therefore surprising to see the degree to which discussions of wireless in the media and even in technical forums reveal confusion or ignorance about many aspects of wireless systems. We will attempt to present examples of this “wireless illiteracy” and to provide informative explanations.

We will be glad to answer any technical questions which fall within our area of expertize. Please do not hesitate to ask.

  1. Interesting site, thanks. I have made various postings on my site exposing the (un)reality of the “Mobile Web 2.0” hype. You may want to pick it up as a thread at some point.

    I don’t know if you have commented on the various claims made mostly in the US that we no longer need licensing of the RF spectrum because modern spread spectrum techniques mean that a “free for all” world is now possible.

  2. Paul, thank you for pointing me to your blog http://blog.wirelesswanders.com/. It looks quite interesting. Regarding the proposed changes in how spectrum gets allocated – that is a fairly complex issue which I will try to tackle sometime. There is a lot of misinformation there that needs to be addressed.
