  • It's no trick -- There is a spectrum crisis
    Since consumers are using their wireless devices more now and projects show a continued increase in usage, there's no question the wireless industry needs more spectrum, says CTIA's Vice President of Cybersecurity and Technology John Marinho. In a blog post last week, Marinho says that while Wi-Fi, femtocell and other spectrum-splitting technology and other new technologies are a part of the solution to meeting consumer demand, but nothing will solve the spectrum crisis like more spectrum. As an engineer, Bell Labs alumnus and patent holder, Marinho notes Claude Shannon, the father of information theory, who proved there are practical limits to how much bandwidth capacity is available from a limited amount of spectrum.
