2010 Wireless U.
October 7 - 8, 2010
San Francisco, CA
What are the key issues that state legislators face on wireless telecommunications? What core knowledge do they need to address these challenges? These topics were addressed at Wireless U., a program of the National Conference of State Legislators delivered with the assistance of PURC and with the financial support of CTIA-The Wireless Association. The event offered state legislators sessions on wireless technologies 101, industry and market performance, jurisdiction, how wireless technologies are changing work and society, e-health, smart grid, and industry finance.
An industry trade show offered legislators the opportunity to tour the new, innovative technologies and applications that are shaping the way people work and live. PURC Director Mark Jamison spoke at a session that examined the effectiveness of federal and state regulations for the wireless industry. PURC Senior Fellow Julia Johnson spoke about the ways in which wireless technologies are impacting how people live, work, and play. Wireless U. is provided annually.
