| French bluetooth accessory specialist Com One announced that its Linux-based
| Phoenix WiFi Radio has upgraded firmware and is being widely distributed. The
| Internet-enabled clock-radio is now being sold by online retailers
| tigerdirect.com, mobileplanet.com, and buy.com, says Com One, while
| distributors include DBL, D&H, and Nice Stuff.



Linux to power cellular radio tower of Babel

| A *** ia-based company offering radio protocol conversion products for
| telecom infrastructure has reportedly licensed Enea's soup-to-nuts
| carrier-grade Linux and high-availability middleware suite. Enea says 4DK
| will use the "Enea Accelerator Platform" with its "SuperConnectivity"
| product, apparently aimed at enabling telecom infrastructure to support
| multiple cellular protocols.


Linux-based SDR targets 700MHz Femtocells

,----[ Quote ]
| Vanu Inc. and BitWave Semiconductor have demonstrated a Linux-based
| software-defined radio (SDR) for wireless Femtocell base stations. Designed
| to handle the 700MHz spectrum due to be auctioned in January, the SDR offers
| simultaneous operation of multiple standards, enabling a fast transition to
| multifaceted Femtocells, says Vanu.


FCC ignores more than 100 years of wisdom

,----[ Quote ]
| In 1883 French cryptographer Auguste Kerckhoffs published a set of six
| design principles for military encryption systems. The second of these
| principles is generally known today under the observation that security
| through obscurity is not security. The Federal Communications Commission
| (FCC) seems not to have read the history books or to be aware of how its
| sister federal agencies develop security standards....


The FCC, FOSS, and software radios: a mixed bag

,----[ Quote ]
| After studying the new rules -- published in the Federal Register last month
| and taking effect today -- the SFLC concluded that the laws are not
| FOSS-restrictive because they "apply to hardware manufacturers who distribute
| SDR devices, regardless if they use FOSS in them or not." And the Center says
| that since the rules specifically mention the GNU/Linux operating system, the
| FCC is actually acknowledging the importance of open source.


Is The FCC Blocking Wireless Competition?

,----[ Quote ]
| With the nationwide expansion of fiber-optic wiring and digital delivery at
| the turn of the century, the federal government reclaimed and is still
| reclaiming large amounts of spectrum.
