Abstract

The world is going digital, exclusively, and wireless—to a good degree. Anyone with a digital wristwatch, a computer, or a fax machine is well aware of the first truth, and anyone who owns a cordless phone is familiar with the second. Digital cellular technology will soon be used in all forms of broadcasting, from satellite Direct Audio Broadcasting (DAB) of high-quality FM directly to home or car, to High-Definition TV (HDTV), interactive TV (pay-per-view movies and assorted transactions from the home), wireless Personal Communications Services (PCS), including Low-Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellite systems now being designed, and multimedia machines for education and entertainment. A huge eager market already exists for these technologies, or is fast being created, the industrial players have the resources to design and deploy them, and the legal/regulatory framework is being readjusted to accommodate them.
