  1. 1. South Carolina Wireless Broadband Network A Transformational Opportunity SC Broadband Technology and Communications Study Committee November 20, 2007 (Revised November 24, 2007) John Warner Swamp Fox LLC [email_address] 864-561-6609
  2. 2. The Opportunity
  3. 3. WiMAX Opportunities WiFi Hotspots Economic Vitality Home Usage Bridging the Digital Divide Wireless Broadband Connectivity Digital Govt Education Healthcare Safety & Security
  4. 4. A Perfect Storm Per Capita Income <ul><li>South Carolina has a unique, transformational opportunity to use publicly owned wireless spectrum to create a statewide, wireless broadband network. </li></ul><ul><li>A statewide WiMAX cloud allows enhanced government, education, and health care services to be provided to the citizens of South Carolina. </li></ul><ul><li>As WiMAX is deployed globally over the next several years, a statewide WiMAX cloud catalyzes economic development for South Carolina companies to develop these emerging wireless services here and then market them globally, and for those in rural areas to connect with the knowledge economy through the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>A statewide WiMAX cloud that helps educate children and adults grows the market in South Carolina for incumbent telecommunications companies, and developing wireless broadband applications grows their markets globally. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Public Private Partnership <ul><li>An entity is formed to manage a broad public / private partnership to build out a statewide, wireless broadband network, and then leverage the network to enhance education, health care, public safety, and economic development. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An analogy is SCRA’s Research Parks System operating unit dedicated to developing a state-wide research park system. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A provider is engaged to build and operate a wireless broadband network across the entire state. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The spectrum is used as collateral to raise the required capital to build the system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A portion of the spectrum is used to deliver revenue generating services to fund the capital costs and maintenance of the system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A portion of the spectrum is used for enhanced education, public safety, health care, and economic development. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The public / private partnership is broadened to include government, education, public safety, industry, and technology to develop and deploy wireless, broadband solutions. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Wireless Broadband Applications
  7. 7. Use Cases <ul><li>Enhanced safety </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Public safety </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Homeland security </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enhanced education </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Children </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adults </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enhanced health care </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Emergency services </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Access to specialists </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enhanced economic development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Emerging technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rural broadband access </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Public Safety Example <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First responders after a hurricane deploy with a small video camera attached to their hats. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Commanders in a control center are able to see in real time what first responders on the ground see. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Through a tablet device, commanders are able to send individual first responders images of other parts of disaster area. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Value </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First responders more effective in protecting life and property after a disaster. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This emerging technology is developed in South Carolina and marketed around the world. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Health Care Example <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accident victim in rural area reached by first responders, who transmit video of wounds and other digital images to regional hospital </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specialists at hospital diagnose remotely </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Life saving drugs prescribed by physicians and administered by technician in the ambulance on the way to the hospital </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Value </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improves the quality of life for the victim </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces the cost to state or insurance companies of disabilities made worse if drugs not administered timely </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This emerging technology is developed in South Carolina and marketed around the world. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Industry Example <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Production problem at Spartanburg manufacturer is videoed and sent in real time to tier one component supplier in Anderson. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Production supervisors in Anderson call in technical assistance from design engineers in Germany. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manufacturing manager in Spartanburg, and vendor’s production supervisor in Anderson and design engineer in Germany collaborate to solve problem in real time. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Value </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improves the quality and productivity of manufacturer and its supply chain. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Better positions South Carolina as a Advanced Manufacturing Platform for high value added products. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This emerging technology is developed in South Carolina and marketed around the world. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Consumer Example <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><ul><li>BMW and Michelin collaborate to develop a product to enhance the experience of a tourist in South Carolina. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tourists are able to take video that they upload to a social networking portion of Michelin Maps and Guides. (Similar to book reviews on Amazon.com) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The BMW ITRC develops technology so this video can be transmitted to other tourists laptops in their hotel, or even to a device in their vehicle. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Value </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enhances the South Carolina tourism experience, resulting in longer stays and more dollars spent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Builds brand awareness of important SC companies, and builds awareness of South Carolina as a technology progressive state </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This emerging technology is developed in South Carolina and marketed around the world. </li></ul></ul>
