PLAINS TWP. In April, the Federal Communication Commission released 3550 to 3700 MHz broadband frequencies, creating new wireless growth, Patrick Leary of Telrad said during the NEPA Broadband & Technology Summit Thursday. Leary s mid-morning seminar called From Props to Jets, was one of nine presented during the first NEPA Broadband & Technology Summit. The daylong event was held Thursday at the Convention Center at Mohegan Sun Pocono in Plains Township. SWG Inc., a wireless broadband equipment sales, repair and service provider headquarter in Olyphant, sponsored the event.

Greg Kopa, co-founder of SWG Inc., was expecting nearly 110 guests based on pre-registrations. The event highlighted the technology services provided locally as well as cutting-edge technology advances such as the new broadband frequencies.

The FCC rarely releases spectrum, Leary, business development director for North America at Telrad said. Releasing spectrum for general use is really rare. This spectrum is going to be almost as important as WiFi.

Space on the spectrum can be purchased, very cheaply, he told a crowd of 26. Priority Access Licenses within the 3550 to 3650 MHz range will be available through a competitive bidding process, according to the FCC website. For more information about the bidding and requirements, visit www.fcc.gov. A low price tag combined with no interference that often affects WiFi will provide industries such as healthcare, energy companies and even small municipalities protected access to wireless broadband use.

Small cities currently pay a wireless provider to link license plate readers, traffic cameras and parking meters, Leary said. With the new capabilities of the new spectrum, small municipalities will have the ability to shed wireless provider bills and build their own network within the spectrum, he said. In a separate conference room, 12 vendors highlighted their services.

They were: Site2 in Scranton; MBC Solutions in Moosic; Comcast Business in Duryea; PenTeleData in Palmerton; tech42 LLC in Dunmore; GST in Lee s Summit, Missouri; Intelpath in Hinsdale, Illinois; Ceragon, Little Falls New Jersey; Telrad based in Israel; and Xirrus in Boston, Massachusetts.
