The article focuses on the significance of the use of bi-directional amplifiers (BDA) on the communication industry in the U.S. The Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association has filed a petition that sought a declaratory ruling by the Federal Communications Commission on the use of cell jammers. On the other hand, Sprint Nextel Corp. has refused to pay for new filters that would convert previously broadband BDA filters to narrowband.
