Citizens of Cambridge will be pleased to learn this news: a group which includes such giants as Microsoft, Samsung and Nokia claimed that testing “white spaces” to provide wireless internet connections was successful. According to the Cambridge TV Whitespace Consortium, it has been investigating a range of technologies whose purpose was to use spaces in the TV spectrum that can be used for applications like rural broadband or b2b communications. The tests have been ongoing in and around Cambridge.
The Cambridge TV Whitespace Consortium is currently recommending to Ofcom that the regulatory body goes ahead with the system in question, looking forward to further innovation in opening up spectrum to satisfy rising demands for wireless internet. In response, communications minister Ed Vaizey appreciated the development, after the test analysis revealed that Cambridge had considerable TV whitespace capacities.
Overall, twenty white space channels that correspond to 160 megahertz were found. 13 of them were allowed in the test license from Ofcom and therefore can now be used either to augment existing broadband networks, or to extend access to rural hotspots.
The Cambridge TV Whitespace Consortium has also hit the pubs and theatres of the city, setting up base stations in order to provide better coverage, which includes pop-up hotspots. They say that this move could help offload mobile broadband data along with extending access. Aside from Microsoft, Samsung and Nokia, there are many smaller companies involved in the consortium: Alcatel-Lucent, BBC, Neul, Spectrum Bridge, and Virgin Media.
