The article focuses on the claim by LightSquared that global positioning systems (GPS) equipment manufacturer's failure to use recommended filtering techniques resulted in the significant interface projection on the planned long-term evolution (LTE) network to be set-up by the company. The claim was made by LightSquared executive Jeff Carlisle in a U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing, where he also expressed willingness to shoulder research and development of filtering products.
