    The FCC: Promoting Fast, Fair & Open Broadband

    in Internet

    From a regulatory perspective, the FCC is the lead agency shaping this Administration’s broadband legacy, both for its aggressive policymaking and its program funding. This interview looks at how far the FCC has come, and how much further some feel the agency should go to facilitate broadband advancement in the U.S.


    Gigi Sohn, Counselor to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, gives listeners insights to the agency’s efforts to promote fast, fair and open broadband networks.  She’ll discuss issues such as community broadband, Lifeline and E-Rate modernization, net neutrality and the FCC’s role as a consumer protection agency.  As broadband networks become ever more essential to full participation in our society and our economy, the FCC's role will become even more critical.          


    Among Sohn’s roles at the FCC is ensuring that the public has an opportunity to participate in FCC’s proceedings that will determine the future of broadband networks.  Sohn discusses how consumers and small businesses can make their voice heard at the Commission.  As former CEO of the public advocacy group Public Knowledge, Sohn is well-positioned to give listeners a perspective on what it is like to go from outside advocate to inside bureaucrat.

    RF Connect - Setting the Standard in Wireless and Mobile Solutions

    in Technology

    We expect our wireless devices to work everywhere. The thought of not being connected is disappointing to some and terrifying to others. After all, whatever would we do if we couldn’t access social media, email, or call to check on the kids as we walk to the next business meeting? Few people contemplate the reason their wireless device does work in building basements, hospitals, and many other buildings. Thankfully, in these instances, someone saw the need to increase signal strength and paid to have that signal enhanced or rebroadcast. RF Connect, based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, is the recognized leader in the design, deployment and support of high performance unified wireless systems, mobile solutions and applications. They set the standard in wireless and mobile solutions, design and deployment expertise through partnering with industry leaders across the entire RF spectrum. Join host Melissa Birnie as she talks with Jeff Hipchen (recognized by Crain’s Detroit Business Magazine as a “40 under 40” business leader), and currently Executive Vice President of RF Connect, to learn more about RF Connect, their services, and what sets them apart from others in this field.

    An Exploration of Opportunity: Women in Mobile/Wireless Tech

    in Technology

    On Monday, June 22nd, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan will launch the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council with a mission ‘to support women through access to educational forums, networking, mentoring, technical training, resources, scholarships, and more, with a primary focus on professional women currently working with, or interested in working with, these technologies in any industry.


    With a lack of mobile/wireless tech-trained talent available, and universities unable to turn out trained graduates fast enough to meet the demands of Michigan-based firms and branches of national and international firms located here, identifying ways to engage more women in the space as a potential solution to this staffing shortage is an area of focus by a wide variety of regional employer groups, educational institutions, economic development organizations, and non-profits. The Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will be the resource to pull together the various stakeholders and resources focused on this issue to connect talent, interest and opportunity.


    The launch of the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will feature an incredible panel of women leaders in the mobile/wireless tech space from a cross-section of industries to address this topic, as well as discuss their own journey's to achieving success in this field. Join host Melissa Birnie and guest, Linda Daichendt, MTAM Exeutive Director, to learn more about the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council, what you can expect to learn at the launch event, and what this Council expects to do for women in Michigan to enable them to utilize these technologies for career/business growth.

    Considering Local Banks for Funding Your Broadband Network? Why Not!?

    in Internet

    [Due tech difficuties, there is a 5-min audio blackout. You can fast-foward when this happens.]


    Sometimes the obvious solution to a broadband challenge is right there in front of a community. Like money. Waverly, IA realized that not just one but THREE local banks held the key to the city's fundraising success. While some communities are stressing out over funding sources, financial institutions could be the linchpin that get many public networks off the ground.


    Who better than local banks and credit unions are served by the economic impact of broadband? New employers moving in, existing companies hiring, increasing property values, people staying in town - when economies thrive, banks prosper. Darrel Wenzel, General Manager of Waverly Utilities, explains how their financial institutions came to be partners in the city's broadband development. He also gives tips to communities that see this strategy potentially playing out well for their constituents.


    Iowa is a hub of excitement these days, with Waverly being the third gigabit city in the state to move forward. The city is hot on the trail of high-speed Internet, cable and phone services for both residents and businesses. Waverly Utilities and city officials are pleased that general taxpayers and ratepayers are not at risk as revenue bonds have been secured and will be paid back by broadband subscribers.

    This Week's Energies Counsel Stillness and Inner Reflection

    in Spirituality

    ADORNING ...


    Fire adorns the mountain.
    The highest standards
    Are quietly revealed.
    Success is achieved without litigation.


    The mountain is still.
    It is your symbol for this moment.
    The mountain attempts to change nothing,
    Yet its form and strength of presence
    Brings awe with no effort.


     


    This is Lana ... and I apologize for Da Coconut Wireless Show's radio silence these past two weeks.  My Dad transitioned June 1st and the shock from his sudden passing took me and my entire family by surprise.  Such events have a way of teaching us the hardest life lessons with undeniable certainty.  My Dad's message to everyone is to reevaluate your relationships because each holds value and weight in your life.  Reinforce your relationships with clear communication and understanding borne of compassion in your Now because we shall not pass this way again on this part of our Journey.
