So Patrick, if an operator has an interest in launching WiMAX using BreezeMax will Alvarion help them find and acquire access to a license in the market they are looking to launch? I know that is not your area of expertise but I also know that other competitive vendors are doing just this type of work to help operators get in the game.

If not I know that Kris Twomey and Stephen Coran are both capable of helping in this process. I am working on this myself.

It would be nice if an AWS profile were being established for WiMAX (since I have a license in this band which NOBODY has done anything with yet). I guess it will happen once someone steps up and places a BIG order! :-)

" Spectrum Lease Search

A new ULS feature to search for spectrum leases, including searches on
fields unique to leasing. The spectrum lease search results page is
standard ULS format with a link to lease details. The spectrum lease
detail page, also standard ULS format, is similar to license detail in
that the lease information is displayed in tabs such as Main, Admin,
Technical Data, and Market."

Yes and the FCC site has a specific search feature just for these things
and refers to this activity as "Secondary Markets."

Is there a documentation/reporting requirement of EBS spectrum holders
that requires them to report who they leased their spectrum to, and when/if they leased it?
In other words, does the FCC search just show the original spectrum
holder (educational insititute) or also the subleasee?

The band generally called "2.5" refers to an almost 200 MHz collection
of spectrum divided up about 60% as non-profit "EBS" (educational
broadband service) spectrum and 40% commercially auctioned "BRS"
(broadband radio service) spectrum. These were formerly called ITFS
(instructional fixed television service) and MMDS (multimedia
distribution service). The original allocation was for one-way cable,
but over the past years the band has been re-configured for broadband
service.

In any one area a variety of commercial and non-profits have various
channels. The FCC allows the non-profits (including the schools you
refer to) to sublet the spectrum to commercial operators.

The 2.3 range is called "WCS" (wireless communications services) and is
different than the 2.5, both in terms of typical available channel sizes
and technical rules.

BellSouth, as part of the AT&T acquisition thereof, was required by the
feds to sell its stake in the commercial 2.5 GHz bands (principally
around Florida and New Orleans). Clearwire bought these assets for $300
million a few months back.

It looks as though BellSouth and Nextel have the 2.3 and Nextel has the
2.5.
I thought they set aside some of those frequencies for schools? Can the
schools still have the license along with the big guys?

That's a very simple process Scottie, which is achieved using the FCC
Web
site. From the home page of www.fcc.gov, go to the Wireless
Telecommunications Bureau area (choice on the right, scrolled down a
tad),
then go to License Search (also a choice on the right). Specifically, go
here: http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchLicense.jsp

On this page I prefer using the "Specialized" search category. Pick one
and
fill in as few fields as you want. Enter more fields to narrow, etc.
This
will pull up records and each of those records allows you to drill down
further to get maps, contact info, etc.

How can I find out who owns it in my area...I think the school system
still
has it, but not sure.

Scottie,

If you think the base station is expensive, then you'd pass out knowing
how
much it'd cost you to get access to just 12 MHz of either set of
spectrum
even in a rural market. Put it this way, a big city would carry a price
tag
well into 8 digits.

"Maybe a very rough number for a fixed/nomadic type base station (360
degrees) might be around $40k."

WOW! I think I will stick with unlicensed for now. The idea of customer
provided CPE is alluring, but its not that tempting for me.

We do, and have been commercially selling 802.16e (mobile-ready WiMAX) -
called BreezeMAX 2300 and BreezeMAX 2500 all through this year.

In the licensed pmp space, especially for .16e systems, the answer of
"average cost of AP and CPE" is not so simple. There are many types of
"CPE"
and there really is no "AP." You have complex base station
infrastructures
in these bands, with multiple levels of diversity. Maybe a very rough
number
for a fixed/nomadic type base station (360 degrees) might be around
$40k.
For fixed outdoor CPE, use the numbers you are used to today for quality
CPE. For indoor self-install CPE SIM-card based, bought at a retail
outlet
or mailed by the operator), a rough number might be $250ish today
driving
lower. PCMCIA cards are around the corner and will be obviously much
cheaper. Embedded devices, starting with laptops, are maybe less than a
year
away for early versions. Embedded consumer devices will come as early as
late 2008 and will be produced in decent volumes by 2010.

Base stations to support the mobile "personal broadband" devices will be
require the addition of tons of things, like ASN gateways, AAA servers,
etc.
