   services to individuals and businesses and can be integrated with a
   variety of competing networks.

   Universal Licensing System. The Universal Licensing System (ULS) is the
   consolidated database, application filing system, and processing system
   for all Wireless Radio Services. ULS supports electronic filing of all
   applications and related documents by applicants and licensees in the
