"Advancing the future of wireless communications"
WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF
THE FIRST ANNUAL
Ocean Place Hilton
Long Branch, New Jersey
June 22 - 23, 1998
Communications Commission (FCC) recently allocated three 100 MHz
bands of radio spectrum for the Unlicensed National Information
Infrastructure (U-NII), with only minimal controls on radio
emissions. This unprecedented release of unlicensed spectrum
therefore provides fertile ground for technical research on
coexisting systems in a wireless "ecology", and raises
interesting policy issues which must be addressed if the U-NII is
to become all it is envisioned to be.
The WINLAB Focus'98 on the U-NII is intended to provide a forum for discussion of a broad U-NII research agenda for both technologists and policy makers, many of whom will have a hand in shaping the U-NII for years to come. It is also intended to provide an introduction to those with an interest in this new and exciting field. By choosing an attractive site and limiting attendance, we seek to encourage formal and informal exchanges among participants.
We hope you will join us for what will certainly be an interesting, exciting and intellectually engaging event.
