FCC to continue white space testing

The FCC said it will continue to test whether WiFi and other short-range wireless technology enabled devices can work in the white spaces between TV broadcast spectrum. In August Microsoft submitted a prototype of such a device to the FCC, which found that it interfered with the surrounding TV frequencies. A device submitted by Philips Electronics managed to get past the first round of testing, but the TV industry pointed to the Microsoft device as evidence that allowing white-space devices is a risky proposition. The device makers now claim they have evidence from field tests that such devices can work without interference.
