ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. Epiq Solutions announced their collaboration with WISPr Systems on a new product intended to transform 4G/LTE and 5G network deployment, test, and troubleshooting. Together, the companies have developed a drone-based scanning solution intended to address the needs of telecom providers to survey and assess 4G/LTE and 5G networks and interference on a large scale that can not be achieved with typical walk and drive tests.


UAS are proving to be a powerful tool for ensuring the success and safety of all sorts of infrastructure. Drones can be operated at a fraction of the cost of traditional inspection crews, and, when equipped with the latest technologies, they can deliver the highest quality in imaging and positioning data. In 2021, Commercial UAV News held the "Hard to Reach Places" webinar to provide an overview of the opportunities, barriers, and successful use cases with a key focus on the latest technologies and project results. To discuss this, CUAV invited Jeremy Sofonia from Emesent, Rese Cleaver from DroneUp, Marc Flamm from Skydio, and Conor Ferguson from WISPr Systems...


The Tech Tribune staff has compiled the very best tech startups in Mississippi. In doing our research, we considered several factors including but not limited to:

  1. Revenue potential
  2. Leadership team
  3. Brand/product traction
  4. Competitive landscape

Conor Ferguson had a slight leg-up on the competition as he graduated from Mississippi State University—he’d already started a wireless Internet company with his dad when he was still in high school. That company offered high-speed access to residential areas where other types of broadband didn’t reach. How it works is straightforward—you place one antenna on a tower and another on the the house where you’re providing service...


Internet use in rural areas rose to 61 percent (from 2 percent) between 2000 and 2015, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. But recent reports show that overall infrastructural expansion has slowed down due to lack of funding. One big challenge associated with installation is the time frame needed for installation at the new customer’s household, especially in isolated areas — the towers are farther apart and the testing takes hours, without including travel time for the technician...


A recent Mississippi State engineering graduate is leading a team of other young alumni and current MSU students in work that could mean big improvements for internet access in rural areas of the U.S. and has the potential to make a global impact...
