Spectrum and the concept of Net Neutrality
(4G3-01)

Monday - 02/02/09,  1:00-2:00pm

Recent Spectrum auctions and the requirements for the “D” block have included public good requirements that seemed burdensome to some carriers. At the same time, the issue of providing a neutral connection, or open interface, has been another point of discussion in the negotiation. Will the impact of 4G’s broadband wireless be a solution for these issues? Will net neutrality requirements be adhered to? Who will be responsible for ensuring net neutrality guidelines are followed?

Femtocells and Cable: Will Femtocells Create a Cable Cellco?
(4G3-03)

Monday - 02/02/09,  3:00-3:45pm

Cable companies seem like the natural fit for a new entrant mobile operator that could use femtocells and picocells. However, cable companies have not publically announced mobile strategies that include the use of large numbers of femtocells and picocells. A femtocell strategy requires the use of broadband in the home to backhaul the cell phone call or cell data from the femtocell to the mobile operator’s network.   Cable companies own and control a large portion of the broadband internet connections at the home that could make use of a cable owned femtocell mobile network.  Femtocells can also be delivered to the customer in a multipurpose set-top box.  Again, cable companies are already providing customers with a set-top box.  It would be a natural fit to put a femtocell in the next general set top box.  Companies like Thomson and Cisco/Scientific Atlanta are focused on delivering a combination set-top box with storage and femtocells included.   Cable companies have for years explored moving into mobile and have already spent billions of dollars on spectrum such as AWS-1 2006 spectrum auction.  This cable spectrum is sitting idle waiting for cable companies to build a Radio Access Network to serve mobile cable users.
 
A combination of femtocells and outdoor disbursed picocells combined with roaming agreements could be used to build a low-cost mobile network. Picocells could be placed on poles throughout a town and use the existing cable network for backhaul, eliminating the need to lease additional tower space which as become a scarce resource because of community opposition to towers.  What are the technical, financial, and marketing hurdles cable must overcome to build RAN based on primarily femtocells and picocells?  What is holding cable back from moving forward with announcing a mobile strategy that uses femtocells as the foundation for the RAN?

- Progress made toward integrating femtocells into the cable set top box/gateway
- Cable industry’s strategy for using femtocells with the AWS or 700Mhz spectrum
- Will Cable use LTE or WiMAX?
- Building and designing a micro RAN network architecture before the macro network
- The business and strategy case for developing a cable cellco by relying - primarily on femtocells and picocells as RAN base stations
Will cable enter into QoS arrangements with cellcos for femtocell quality?  Do such arrangements violate the FCC’s network neutrality rules?

Square Pegs – Overcoming the Regulatory Challenges Facing Wireless and Wired IP Communications
(4G3-04)

Monday - 02/02/09,  4:00-4:45pm

IP communications are fundamentally different than traditional telephony, but these new services have recently been regulated using old paradigms. As new services reach across networks, they must also address the sometimes disparate regulatory requirements associated with different networks and jurisdictions, including the need for a wireless Carterfone decision, the importance of coherent 911 requirements, and the continued efforts by states to assert jurisdiction over IP communications. Join long-time IP communications advocates Brita Strandberg and Jim Kohlenberg as they discuss the existing regulatory landscape and the practical challengers faced by IP communications providers, and offer their hopes for positive regulatory change.
