  • 5. 5 1 P R O C E E D I N G S 2 MR. MATHIAS: Hello. My name is Charles 3 Mathias with the Wireless Bureau, and I wanted to 4 welcome you all today to our FCC National 5 Broadband Plan Workshop on Spectrum. 6 I wanted to extend a special thank you 7 to all of our panelists, some of whom have come 8 great distances to be with us today. Thank you 9 for that special effort. Thank you to everybody 10 in the room and on the web who's participating and 11 a special thank you to the many, many people who 12 helped make this workshop today possible. 13 Electromagnetic spectrum is one of our 14 nation's most treasured resources. It's also one 15 of the keys to unlocking the power of the Internet 16 and to making broadband accessible to all types of 17 people on the go and wherever they may be. Our 18 workshop today is intended to deepen the 19 Commission's understanding of how we use our 20 nation's spectrum and to further inform the 21 development of the National Broadband Plan. 22 We have three panels. The first panel ANDERSON COURT REPORTING 706 Duke Street, Suite 100 Alexandria, VA 22314 Phone (703) 519-7180 Fax (703) 519-7190
  • 6. 6 1 -- everybody's here today, right now -- seeks to 2 understand the delicate balance that must be 3 struck between the supply and demand for spectrum 4 and the interplay with technological developments. 5 The second panel will look at the opportunities 6 and mechanisms that can be used to make more 7 spectrum available for commercial use. And the 8 final panel, which will be, I'm happy to say, 9 moderated by Commissioner Baker, will be worth the 10 wait. It will explore the technological 11 advantages that can be used to facilitate more 12 productive spectrum use. 13 I'm sure we're going to have a very, 14 very interesting afternoon. As time allows, we'll 15 be taking questions from the audience here in 16 Washington and from the web. We will have 17 colleagues in the room who have cards for you to 18 write your questions down and we have people who 19 are also monitoring the web. We hope you won't be 20 bashful. 21 So, with that, I'd like to turn the 22 floor over to our moderator for the first panel, ANDERSON COURT REPORTING 706 Duke Street, Suite 100 Alexandria, VA 22314 Phone (703) 519-7180 Fax (703) 519-7190
  • 7. 7 1 John Leibovitz, deputy chief of the Wireless 2 Bureau. 3 MR. LEIBOVITZ: Hi. Thanks everyone for 4 coming and for people who are streaming online. 5 Welcome to the first panel of the day, which is 6 going to focus on supply and demand of spectrum 7 for 4G networks. 8 After years of preparation, it's pretty 9 clear that wireless broadband is in full swing 10 now. Tens of millions of people use wireless 11 access for broadband on a daily basis using 12 handsets, laptops, netbooks and other devices to 13 access the Internet, and that number is really 14 ramping up very quickly. 15 Broadband, by most accounts, consumes 16 way more network bandwidth than traditional voice 17 telephone and other applications. And so, you 18 know, we're looking at a potential squeeze in 19 terms of network capacity as -- looking out a few 20 years as the consumer behaviors change and devices 21 get more and more capable. 22 Fortunately, we're also on the verge of ANDERSON COURT REPORTING 706 Duke Street, Suite 100 Alexandria, VA 22314 Phone (703) 519-7180 Fax (703) 519-7190
  • 8. 8 1 a transition to a new generation of network 2 technology. We've got more efficient 3G networks 3 and 4G networks deploying soon. The big question 4 we want to ask in this panel is, even with these 5 advances in technology, will we have enough 6 spectrum? And so, fortunately, we have a 7 terrific, terrific panel of industry leaders who 8 work on these problems every day and we're 9 thrilled to be able to engage with them in this 10 setting. 11 So, let me introduce them very quickly. 12 I'm probably not going to go in the order of the 13 name cards.

He is 15 responsible for identifying new initiatives and 16 growth opportunities for FiberTower, which focuses 17 on the backhaul segment of the marketplace. 18 Dr. Rajiv Laroia is senior vice 19 president of technology for Qualcomm.
