The possibility of using TV white spaces for multiple uses has moved from “no it can’t possibly happen” through to “maybe” and now to the “it’s gonna happen” stage, Dan Reed – Vice-President of Microsoft’s Technology Policy Group – told the Cambridge TV White Spaces Trial Summit.
Supported by Cambridge Wireless, the summit marked the end of 10 months of comprehensive testing in urban and rural areas in and around Cambridge by the Cambridge TV White Spaces Consortium, which comprises 17 international and UK technology and media companies.
Delegates heard from members of the consortium along with experts from Germany, Singapore and the US.
“There’s a real buzz and excitement around the hallways here about how far we’ve come,” said Reed at the event at Duxford.
“Today is an important milestone. It’s been a technical, political and social success.” Rest
