Benefits for Security
► Eliminate the continual sun-setting of hardware –
(amps, 2G, 3G, 4G) software vs hardware approach to
control product lifecycle
► Increased network capacity that opens the door for
new applications – broadband access for wireless
products that will support more features without relying
upon competing networks (voice, video and data)
► No spectrum cost – Access vast amounts of new
spectrum. Deliver a licensed spectrum experience using
unlicensed “opportunistic” spectrum
► Secure, reliable two-way communication – All-IP,
priority response, two-way audio for PERS and verification.

Rethinking Spectrum
► Mobile communications are
gasping for capacity from huge
mobile bandwidth demand
► Wireless network capacity is
spectrum limited
► Yet spectrum (overall) is
utilized inefficiently today
► Average occupancy of
spectrum is 5.2%
► Scarcity today is due to
inefficient use rather than a
physical shortage

Cognitive Radio Overview
► Cognitive (smart) radios are able
to identify spectrum (i.e. radio
frequencies) that is not being
used, and to quickly tune to
those frequencies to transmit
and/or receive signals.
► Have the ability to instantly find
other spectrum if interference is
detected on the frequencies
being used.
“I ran an excursion where we attempted to jam it with conventional military jamming systems, and we were
unable to do it, xMax was able to stay ahead of the jammers that were trying to attack it and kept the
communications systems up and operational throughout the two weeks that I ran the jammers”.

New Policy Approach
► Recent advancements in technology & spectrum policy provide
strategic path to spectrum
 Policymakers introducing “opportunistic” spectrum use and dynamic
spectrum access via cognitive techniques
“NTIA proposes a new path forward for spectrum
repurposing that relies on a combination of relocating federal
users and sharing spectrum between federal agencies and
commercial users.”
“The FCC should spur further development and
deployment of opportunistic uses across more
radio spectrum”
Occurring globally
“identify immediately 1,000 MHz of Federal
spectrum for sharing with the private sector”

DHS Re-Banding
► 150 MHz of spectrum Identified that may benefit
from Cognitive Radio
1675-1695 MHz (20 MHz)
–
need for more spectrally efficiency transmissions and interference
avoidance. P.24
–
Options to mitigate the potential for interference should be included in
deployment plans P. 25
1350-1390 MHz (40 MHz)
–
intelligent avoidance of interference may be required. P. 29
–
The development of technologies for the intelligent avoidance of
interference is less clear and an area of potential focus by the community.
P. 30
1435-1525 MHz (90 MHz)
–
intelligent interference rejection circuitry is required P. 31

Controlled Private Network
► Operate a secure private network that delivers controlled
access to a defined set of users with no spectrum cost
► Delivers a licensed spectrum experience using free spectrum
► Does not require significant technical skill to employ or
operate, is secure and difficult to jam or hack
Compelling economics
Mesh Node
no spectrum costs
lower Capex
lower Opex
rapidly deployable

Recommendations
► Get engaged in spectrum policy formation
► Control destiny by shaping technology that meets your
needs – pull strategy
► Validate technical ability to meet needs
► Drive economies of scale via aggregation
 Aggregation of demand within industry
 Cross industry alliance with other spectrum challenged industries
