This report provides an examination of telecommunications research support levels, focus, and time horizon in industry, an assessment of university telecommunications research, and the implications of these findings on the health of the sector.

The previous sections highlight several of the more prominent federal funding programs related to telecommunications. But there have been many other important areas of investment over the years. Within DOD itself, the service laboratories (Office of Naval Research, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the Army Research Office) as well as other military R&D centers (such as MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Rome Air Development Center, Army Satellite R&D at Ft. Monmouth, and so on) have made significant investments in a wide array of telecommunications technologies. Another mission-driven investment was made by NASA in support of satellite and space missions. Finally, programs at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Boulder laboratory have helped advance the field of wireless propagation.

Although it is sometimes argued that the venture capital invested in industry is supplanting traditional mechanisms for achieving innovation, venture capital represents development funding, not research funding. Leading-edge developers that have a profit requirement will quickly curtail their research directions in favor of achieving corporate financial goals. Moreover, the surge in funding that peaked in 2000 has fallen off almost as quickly as it appeared. Total telecommunications venture funding peaked at nearly $5 billion in the second quarter of 2000 before dropping back down to roughly $560 million per quarter just 2 years later—a level that has remained fairly constant into 2006.

From about 1990 to 2000, the period of high growth in the telecommunications industry meant that there were sufficient revenues to attract many new entrants into the telecommunications market, each of which invested heavily in creating new network facilities. This time period also saw venture capital play a more prominent role in the telecommunications industry (). Capital expenditures by these new carriers provided significant revenue streams to equipment vendors, and it appeared that research in telecommunications was continuing at a pace comparable to that of the Bell System prior to divestiture. But once this large build-out had been completed, and as the Internet bubble popped, investment declined significantly.
