How to Deploy a Successful NG911 System

As we have said before, wireless devices, at their core, are public safety tools. With more than 396,000 wireless 911 calls made daily, Next Generation 911 (NG911) systems must be able to provide dispatchers with the critical information needed so emergency responders can address situations quickly and efficiently. NG911 technologies have the power to transform [...]

The Facts (Again) Prove the Wireless Ecosystem is Robustly Competitive

The facts continue to prove the wireless marketplace is driven by competition and innovation.

As we explain in the Wireless in America brochure, “smart” wireless base stations (usually cell sites) are what help you be mobile [...]

CTIA to FCC: Keep SMS Free from USF Contribution Requirements

Since the universal service fund (USF) was created in the era of wireline communications, the outdated programs such as Lifeline and Linkup emphasize landlines, even though today’s low-income consumers prefer wireless technology. That’s why USF reform is critical. In our reply comments to the FCC, we explained why short message service (SMS) is an integrated [...]

CTIA Asks FCC: Don’t Double-Tax Wireless Providers

A few weeks ago, we submitted comments to the FCC on the assessment and collection of regulatory fees for fiscal year 2011. The Commission proposed to amend its schedule of regulatory fees to require wireless providers pay the Interstate Telecommunications Service Provider (ITSP) fees for the first time, in addition to the substantial per-subscriber regulatory [...]

Thanks to the wireless industry’s relentless competition throughout the ecosystem, countless innovative products and services have been developed to meet the demands of consumers, including the accessibility community. With so many accessibility options in wireless devices available today, CTIA created AccessWiress.org, which offers a variety of useful tools. For example, consumers can use MMF’s Global [...]
