Wondering about the lack of industry participation

Posted in cognitive standards at 10:30 am by JamesNeel

In this post, Morfster wonders why industry isn’t taking a more active interest in participating in ITU-R activities related to SDR/CR, particularly the responses to the ITU-R inquiry into cognitive radio.

My 2 cents (spelled out more fully in the comments) is because the perceived benefit is negligible, any incurred costs make participating a losing business proposition.

An immediate question is why do I blog then? Because a) I wanted a place to keep track of links to everything I thought was relevant to cognitive radio and a blog is a convenient format, b) it does drive some traffic to the company website, c) the cost is negligible (5-10 minutes a day of my time).
