Jun 23, 2010– Lawrence Behr, a prominent telecommunications industry executive, will be a featured speaker this month at the “Summer Summit” of Wireless Communications Association International.

Other summit speakers include R. Gerard Salemme, the executive vice president of Clearwire, and Bill Payne, vice president and chief technology officer of Motorola Networks.

Behr is founder and chief executive officer of LBA Group Inc. The company offers engineering consultant services and hardware fabrication and distribution worldwide to wireless and communications industry customers.

The focus of the June 30-July 1 summit is best practices for “4G” – the fourth-generation of cellular wireless. This discussion will include how WiMAX operators can improve their performance and how broadband radio (BRS) and education (EBS) license-holders can comply with Federal Communications Commission license renewal standards on “substantial service.” More information on BRS & EBS substantial service.

Behr will address WCAI membership on the latter issue – FCC substantial service compliance. The association president, Fred Campbell, cited Behr’s “extensive experience” with the issue in inviting him to speak. LBA Group has become an engineering and hardware resource for broadband licensees needing to prove they provide what the FCC deems to be acceptable levels of service. The deadline for the licensees to comply is next May.

Behr is a frequent industry lecturer. He often is called as an expert witness in communications regulatory matters, testifying in FCC hearings as well as in courts and before zoning authorities. He is a director of the National Association of Radio and Telecommunications Engineers.
