re: Moto's Flarion Call? Justin writes that "OFDM is a modulation scheme that can support an average data rate of around 1.5 Mbit/s for users". That obscures the truth a little. OFDM is a modulation type, but depending how the OFDM is done (and there are lots of different variations of the concept), how many sub-channels are created, and how much bandwidth is assigned, different data rates will result. In general, OFDM is more spectrally efficient than cellular technology.

re: Moto's Flarion Call? LR,
what does "public safety project" mean? Are you refering to the TIA/ETSI partnership project called "MESA" (see http://www.projectmesa.org/). Motorola already has 5 seperate memberships in the project but I don't see Flarion listed.

re: Moto's Flarion Call? OFDM is more spectrally efficient and a more data-friendly platform, but what we really need is a broadband wireless solution that can compete with cable and DSL - something like what NextNet is doing.
