Peter and others,

Yes, please feel free to nominate candidates.  I believe we still have an
email address [EMAIL PROTECTED] but also send it to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Follow the below procedure:

Nominations 
Nominees must be a representative of a WISPA principal, vendor or associate
member in good standing prior to the deadline for nominations. Nominations
may come from the membership at large or from the Board of Directors. 
Nominations coming from the standing Board of Directors should include a
letter of recommendation from the Director submitting the nomination. 

Nominations coming from a WISPA member should include a letter of
recommendation from the member.  Both the member submitting the nomination
and the nominee must be members in good standing at the time the nomination
is submitted.
Board members completing their first term and wishing to serve a second
1-year term are required to submit their candidacy for re-election.
Attendance records for all board meetings for the current term should be
supplied along with the statement of intent to run.
Credentials of prospective nominees will be reviewed and evaluated by the
Nominating Committee, which is responsible for ensuring that a sufficient
number of qualified candidates are available to stand for election. It shall
be the sole responsibility of the Nominating Committee to recommend a
proposed list of nominees to the Board of Directors for its approval.
Following approval of the nominees by the Board of Directors, nominee's
applications will be posted on the http://www.wispa.org website for review
of the membership, as well as voting instructions and a ballot. Voting will
be conducted an online ballot, and ballots will be tabulated by an objective

Re: [WISPA] WISPA Board

2007-04-16 Thread John Scrivner
Thank you for the kind words, Mac. I will certainly run as long as the 
group wants me to be part of the board of WISPA. I do want all of you to 
know though that I think any good organization should have people move 
through the ranks. Anyone who is part of WISPA, has some leadership 
skills and wants to see things improve for the industry should try to 
serve on the board at some point. It is a valuable experience. We need 
fresh ideas and new blood infused over time to keep this a going concern.


I think it makes us all better followers if we have to be leaders at 
some point. I see so many people who take a leadership role in local 
government, a town club, a church or charity and they take it on the 
chin from people who have never had to lead. If we all take a shot at 
leading WISPA over time the work product of the entire group will 
improve because we will all know what it is like to try to run this 
effort. In effect, we will all become better followers if we have been 
leaders at least once.  We will also all know more about the structure, 
management and operation of the organization. I feel this diversity is 
very important for the organization to remain vital and sustainable into 
the future.


I have told Mac before that I wanted to see him serve on the board of 
WISPA. I want to publicly request that Mac Dearman run for the board. 
For those of you who do not know it, Mac led the efforts after Katrina 
which led to some of the best work WISPA has ever done. We helped many 
people in shelters, churches, etc. Mac did a god job of leading that 
effort. I have little doubt that he would make a good director for WISPA 
in our next board. Mac, please go over to http://nominations.wispa.org 
and fill out the form.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] WISPA Board

Thank you for the kind words, Mac. I will certainly run as long as the 
group wants me to be part of the board of WISPA. I do want all of you to 
know though that I think any good organization should have people move 
through the ranks. Anyone who is part of WISPA, has some leadership 
skills and wants to see things improve for the industry should try to 
serve on the board at some point. It is a valuable experience. We need 
fresh ideas and new blood infused over time to keep this a going concern.

I think it makes us all better followers if we have to be leaders at 
some point. I see so many people who take a leadership role in local 
government, a town club, a church or charity and they take it on the 
chin from people who have never had to lead. If we all take a shot at 
leading WISPA over time the work product of the entire group will 
improve because we will all know what it is like to try to run this 
effort. In effect, we will all become better followers if we have been 
leaders at least once.  We will also all know more about the structure, 
management and operation of the organization. I feel this diversity is 
very important for the organization to remain vital and sustainable into 
the future.

I have told Mac before that I wanted to see him serve on the board of 
WISPA. I want to publicly request that Mac Dearman run for the board. 
For those of you who do not know it, Mac led the efforts after Katrina 
which led to some of the best work WISPA has ever done. We helped many 
people in shelters, churches, etc. Mac did a god job of leading that 
effort. I have little doubt that he would make a good director for WISPA 
in our next board. Mac, please go over to http://nominations.wispa.org 
and fill out the form.

Scriv,

  How much of the current board is willing to take another turn in the
barrel? I personally feel like you and the others have done an outstanding
job and I feel inclined to nominate every one of you here now.

Y'ALL HAVE MY UTMOST RESPECT!

[WISPA] ISPCON WISPA Meeting

2007-04-16 Thread Peter R.
FYI... WISPA is having a meeting following the ISPCON Reception on Wed. 
evening, May 23 at 6:30.

FISPA is having a meeting at the same time. (It's 2 for 1 nite :)
http://www.ispcon.com/conference/specialevents.php#329

So we can do dinner later - say 9 PM - or we can just convene to 
network, drinnk and nosh at 9 PM at Pointe Orlando.

Love some input.

BTW, who is sponsoring the WISPA Meeting?

Ball State receives FCC approval to test and deploy WiMAX technology

By kpaul, Section BSU
Posted on Sat Dec 09, 2006 at 11:46:47 AM EST
By Anthony Romano

MUNCIE, IN - The wireless world will be watching Ball State's Office 
of Wireless Research and Mapping (OWRM) closely as it becomes among the 
first to test and deploy WiMAX technology in the United States.

Using a six-month experimental license granted by the FCC, the OWRM is 
partnering with Alvarion and Digital Bridge Communications to test WiMAX

technology on equipment at 3.5GHz, a frequency used outside of the 
United States.

Testing is being done at this higher frequency because there is 
currently no equipment available for testing at 2.5 GHz, a frequency 
that will be used to provide broadband services such as cell phones and 
Internet in the United States in the coming months.

The goal is to find out as much about this technology as possible, and 
then begin sharing the information with others who are anxiously 
awaiting for 2.5GHz WiMAX technology to arrive, said O'Neal Smitherman,

Ball State's vice president for information technology.

Researchers from OWRM are putting the WiMAX technology through a variety

of tests in order to find out more about connectivity, throughput, 
capacity, signal strength and penetration inside the home under 
variables such as weather, trees, elevation and distance.

Smitherman says several telecommunications companies have already 
expressed interest in the test results because of valuable information 
it will provide in the future development of broadband services to more 
rural and underserved areas of the country.

Through testing and deployment over the next 90 days, we will be able 
to examine the performance of the WiMAX platform based on the IEEE 
802.16 standard, as well as have an opportunity to fine tune our GIS 
mapping capability using real data, said Smitherman. This will give us

the data needed to accurately predict and map signal coverage anywhere.

Digital Bridge Communications, a provider of broadband wireless services

to rural and underserved communities, will assist the OWRM in the 
testing and deployment of true WiMAX technology. Equipment being used 
for testing comes from Alvarion, the world's largest manufacturer of 
wireless broadband. Afterimage GIS, a company that specializes in RF 
modeling, design and market analysis will also assist in the study.

Re: [WISPA] ISPCON WISPA Meeting

2007-04-16 Thread John Scrivner
We are hoping to get some vendor support for this event. I am hoping we 
can get some good food there along with the drinks so we do not have to 
go out at all unless we all just want to. Are there any Vendor Members 
who might want to sponsor our meeting at ISPCON? Alvarion and 
Electrocomm sponsored the last one. They would certainly be welcome to 
do this again but we will entertain offers from any WISPA Vendor Member 
out there. This will cost about $2500 total so a Vendor could sponsor 
all or 2 Vendors could split the cost.

Thanks,
Scriv

Dee,

I find that there are so many claiming to be the first so at least they 
make it sound like it's not the same old thing, even if it is. ;-) So I 
guess claims like that have to be taken with a grain of salt in my opinion.


This is part of the reason I don't post such and such a city is putting 
up a wireless network anymore. As I like to put it yet another city is 
deploying a wifi network. It is not really newsworthy anymore unless 
they ARE doing something revolutionary.

Thank you for the kind words, Mac. I will certainly run as long as the 
group wants me to be part of the board of WISPA. I do want all of you to 
know though that I think any good organization should have people move 
through the ranks. Anyone who is part of WISPA, has some leadership 
skills and wants to see things improve for the industry should try to 
serve on the board at some point. It is a valuable experience. We need 
fresh ideas and new blood infused over time to keep this a going concern.


I think it makes us all better followers if we have to be leaders at 
some point. I see so many people who take a leadership role in local 
government, a town club, a church or charity and they take it on the 
chin from people who have never had to lead. If we all take a shot at 
leading WISPA over time the work product of the entire group will 
improve because we will all know what it is like to try to run this 
effort. In effect, we will all become better followers if we have been 
leaders at least once.  We will also all know more about the structure, 
management and operation of the organization. I feel this diversity is 
very important for the organization to remain vital and sustainable into 
the future.


I have told Mac before that I wanted to see him serve on the board of 
WISPA. I want to publicly request that Mac Dearman run for the board. 
For those of you who do not know it, Mac led the efforts after Katrina 
which led to some of the best work WISPA has ever done. We helped many 
people in shelters, churches, etc. Mac did a god job of leading that 
effort. I have little doubt that he would make a good director for WISPA 
in our next board. Mac, please go over to http://nominations.wispa.org 
and fill out the form.

Scriv,

 How much of the current board is willing to take another turn in the
barrel? I personally feel like you and the others have done an outstanding
job and I feel inclined to nominate every one of you here now.

Y'ALL HAVE MY UTMOST RESPECT!

 Dee,
 
 I find that there are so many claiming to be the first so at least they 
 make it sound like it's not the same old thing, even if it is. ;-) So I 
 guess claims like that have to be taken with a grain of salt in my opinion.


Agreed. Maybe some some snacks with the salt also.

 
 This is part of the reason I don't post such and such a city is putting 
 up a wireless network anymore. As I like to put it yet another city is 
 deploying a wifi network. It is not really newsworthy anymore unless 
 they ARE doing something revolutionary.
 

Hopefully I'll find some free wifi as I'll be in Harrisburg next week.

Cheers,
-Dee

  Ball State receives FCC approval to test and deploy WiMAX technology
 
  By kpaul, Section BSU
  Posted on Sat Dec 09, 2006 at 11:46:47 AM EST
  By Anthony Romano
 
  MUNCIE, IN - The wireless world will be watching Ball State's Office 
  of Wireless Research and Mapping (OWRM) closely as it becomes among the 
  first to test and deploy WiMAX technology in the United States.
 
  Using a six-month experimental license granted by the FCC, the OWRM is 
  partnering with Alvarion and Digital Bridge Communications to test WiMAX
 
  technology on equipment at 3.5GHz, a frequency used outside of the 
  United States.
 
  Testing is being done at this higher frequency because there is 
  currently no equipment available for testing at 2.5 GHz, a frequency 
  that will be used to provide broadband services such as cell phones and 
  Internet in the United States in the coming months.
 
  The goal is to find out as much about this technology as possible, and 
  then begin sharing the information with others who are anxiously 
  awaiting for 2.5GHz WiMAX technology to arrive, said O'Neal Smitherman,
 
  Ball State's vice president for information technology.
 
  Researchers from OWRM are putting the WiMAX technology through a variety
 
  of tests in order to find out more about connectivity, throughput, 
  capacity, signal strength and penetration inside the home under 
  variables such as weather, trees, elevation and distance.
 
  Smitherman says several telecommunications companies have already 
  expressed interest in the test results because of valuable information 
  it will provide in the future development of broadband services to more 
  rural and underserved areas of the country.
 
  Through testing and deployment over the next 90 days, we will be able 
  to examine the performance of the WiMAX platform based on the IEEE 
  802.16 standard, as well as have an opportunity to fine tune our GIS 
  mapping capability using real data, said Smitherman. This will give us
 
  the data needed to accurately predict and map signal coverage anywhere.
 
  Digital Bridge Communications, a provider of broadband wireless services
 
  to rural and underserved communities, will assist the OWRM in the 
  testing and deployment of true WiMAX technology. Equipment being used 
  for testing comes from Alvarion, the world's largest manufacturer of 
  wireless broadband. Afterimage GIS, a company that specializes in RF 
  modeling, design and market analysis will also assist in the study.

Tim,
Thank you for your support of WISPA. I have copied Marlon Schafer on 
this message. He handles the CALEA committee list server and should be 
able to add you there. then you can get caught up on what has been done 
so far. Marlon, this company specializes in CALEA solutions and is 
interested in working with us to develop the standard. They have paid 
their Vendor Member dues. So Tim, meet Marlon and Marlon, meet Tim.

Thanks guys,
John Scrivner

2007-04-16 Thread Marlon K. Schafer
We're waiting on the FBI to check a sample data intercept we've sent to 
them.


Image Stream is very close to a fairly inexpensive box that can be used in a 
pinch.  I'll let Jeff B. get into any needed details.


We (wispa) are still working on this issue.  We're in a holding pattern for 
the FCC though.


Here is a VERY important point that has to be hammered home.  You don't HAVE 
to follow anyone's standard to be compliant.  You just have to be able to 
give the LEA the data.  Having a standard limits the things that the LEA can 
ask you to do.  It also give you more specific steps to follow etc.


The CALEA team can verify or refute this.  I believe it was decided that an 
MT router could deliver the needed data in the approved format.  Mike?
