The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau - WTB

Wireless communications services include cellular telephone, paging, personal communications services, and other commercial and private radio services. The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) handles all FCC domestic wireless telecommunications programs and policies with some exceptions.

Wireless Telecommunications FCC

Cellular and PCS phones, pagers and two-way radios, radio spectrum.

Federal Communications Commission - FCC

"The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 and is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. (United States). "

Geographic Information Systems - FCC

Geographic Information Systems - FCC

"With these data sets, you will be able to determine the locations and limited technical details of existing towers the FCC collects data on (i.e. Cellular, Paging, Microwave, AM, FM, etc...). This information can be extremely helpful in conducting analysis such as; current service deployment, need/feasibility determinations of new services, co-location of antenna structures, inventorying of structures, network planning, etc..."

GSM World - Online face of GSM Association

GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications: originally from Groupe Sp├ęcial Mobile) is the most popular standard for mobile telephone systems in the world.

GSM World - Online face of GSM Association - "The GSMA represents the interests of the worldwide mobile communications industry"

GSM Technology for Mobile Communications

The GSM Association, its promoting industry trade organization of mobile phone carriers and manufacturers, estimates that 80% of the global mobile market uses the standard. GSM is used by over 3 billion people across more than 212 countries and territories. - GSM Wiki

GSM Technology for Mobile Communications

EDGE - GSM Evolution (EDGE) technology provides up to three times the data capacity of GPRS
HSPA - The set of technologies that defines the migration path for 3G/WCDMA operators worldwide
GSM - An open, digital cellular technology used for transmitting mobile voice and data services
GPRS - A very widely deployed wireless data service, available now with most GSM networks

Bluetooth Technology - Uniting the Devices

"uniting warring factions in parts of what is now Norway, Sweden, and Denmark - just as Bluetooth technology is designed to allow collaboration between differing industries such as the computing, mobile phone, and automotive markets....."

Bluetooth Technology - Uniting the Devices

"The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is formed with five companies." 1998 AD

On your phone - With Bluetooth technology your phone can do more than you realize.

"Bluetooth technology also uses radio waves. The biggest difference between Bluetooth technology and devices like FM radios and TV is distance. Radios and TV are meant to broadcast to many people over miles or kilometers. Bluetooth technology sends information within your own personal space, which is called your..."

Modbus Communication Protocol Suite

Group of individuals and firms supporting and helping the implementation of Modbus communication protocol suite and the evolution to address architectures for distributed automation systems.

Modbus Communication Protocol Suite

Some Activities of the Modbus Organization are ...to Encourage, support and evolve ...
  • Participation in standards activities worldwide.
  • Leading the evolution of the Modbus protocol and its variants.
  • Modbus across a broad spectrum of physical layers and transmission media.
  • Conformance testing program to insure greater interoperability of Modbus devices.
Some Facts -

Modbus Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon (Schneider Electric) in 1979. It is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices. It is a de facto standard, truly open and the most widely used network protocol in the industrial manufacturing environment.

The semiconductor industry has implemented a Network Communication Standard and an Object Messaging Protocol using Modbus TCP/IP. This allows SEMI Sensor Bus compatible sensors to communicate with each other using Modbus TCP/IP.

Spinwave Systems’ Wireless Thermostat Controller is a drop-in replacement for almost any existing conventional non-communicating thermostat, re-using the existing equipment wiring. Thermostat functions and values are accessible remotely through an embedded web page of the Modbus Mesh Gateway or via Modbus communication.



Wireless Thermostat Controller, SWC-TSTAT-1

The wireless thermostat controller is a full function wireless mesh device with integrated radio that can be configured to control heat pump systems, (with auxiliary or emergency heating if necessary), gas/oil heating systems with add on cooling, control high and low balance points as well as the number of heating and cooling stages needing precise control. It can even adapt to manage the number of fan speeds it must control.

PICMG - Open specifications for Modular Computing

PICMG is a consortium of companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications.

PICMG - Open specifications for Modular Computing

Specs and Standards for Advanced Mezzanine Card, AdvancedTCA, COM Express, CompactPCI, e-PCI-X, MicroTCA and others.

PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes

(Study this page first to understand how computers became more maintanable and expandable - delabs)

PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes

"The PCI-ISA passive backplane standard moves all of the components normally located on the motherboard to a single plug-in card. Looking much like a standard ISA or PCI card, a PCI-ISA CPU card has two edge connectors on it - one for the PCI bus and one for the ISA bus. The "motherboard" is replaced with a simple "passive backplane" that has only connectors soldered to it."
