I'm thinking a scalable, interoperable network architecture based on 
user-purchased (enterprise and small business) cognitive radio equipment 
that dynamically configures and adapts.   A "internetworking architecture" 
for mobile devices that incorporates incremental evolution.

This "bet" involves a commitment to an R&D process, rather than a fixed 
systems technology like 3G that is operator-focused.
