TV White Space Trials


Starting in late 2009 Spectrum Bridge, along with industry partners,
deployed a number of trials of TVWS technology


Claudville

VA (rural)


Rural Broadband to a community with no access to the Internet


Wilmington NC (urban)


Smart city applications for more efficient and cost effective government


Plumas CA (rural)


Smart Grid, utility applications for management of energy use


Logan OH (urban)


Telemedicine applications for local healthcare



In each of these examples existing options were impractical or cost
prohibitive. The use of TV White Space made the solutions viable in a
cost effective manner.

TV White Space being adopted worldwide

Trials operating under experimental licenses

Spectrum Bridge has versions of it’s platforms working in several countries with plans to expand in 2012 to
several new international markets


A number of standards bodies are working on TVWS technologies:

IEEE 802.11
(Super
WiFi
)
: low power personal/portable

IEEE 802.22
(White Space Alliance)
high power fixed

IEEE 802.19
(co existence)

IETF (
PAWS

-
Protocol for Accessing White Space)
database to radio interface

Wilmington NC, The worlds first Commercial Deployment


The applications in Wilmington and
New Hanover County solved issues
that they had previously been unable
to address


Interference (congestion) and/or range
with existing solutions could be
overcome with the use of TV White
Space


Applications include:


Video surveillance


Facilities control (Lighting)


Public
Wifi

Access


Improved city services


Applications that have an ROI in
weeks or months and are repeatable
in towns and cities across the country

Going Forward: Other “ White Space”


TVWS concepts can be easily adapted to provide shared access to other
bands the government is considering opening up


Shared Access with existing incumbents is a prerequisite


Access could be on a priority basis


Pre
-
emptive or planned (for Public Safety and DOD spectrum)


QOS and co
-
existence can be managed


Use can be monitored and, potentially, charged for


One day we
expect
this will also allow you to monetize the sharing of some of
your protected spectrum, without compromising
the
primary use.
