The Power of White Space


In 2010 the Federal Communications Commission established rules allowing unlicensed radio transmitters to operate in the broadcast television spectrum when that spectrum is not used by a licensed service. Called “white space” this prime usable spectrum represents a significant amount of unused spectrum. Subject to certain rules the spectrum is ideal for providing critical connectivity to a wide-range of edge, middle-mile and wide-area industrial and commercial requirements.

Accessing White Space Spectrum

All TV White Space (TVWS) radios use an approved FCC database provider to notify fielded devices of available VHF and UHF channels.
