Spectrum Bridge, Carlson Wireless pitch TV white space benefits

Spectrum Bridge disclosed it has joined with Carlson Wireless on an initiative to pitch TV white space spectrum as a solution for expanding broadband coverage across rural America. The companies said they are collaborating to help wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) serve customers in areas that are geographically unsuitable for deploying fixed or fiber-based broadband services. Carlson's RuralConnect products harness the non-line-of-sight (NLOS) capabilities of TVWS frequency bands to deliver speeds comparable to traditional wireless networks, up to 16 Mbps in the current generation of product. Spectrum Bridge said it will guide Carlson through the FCC-certification process for RuralConnect and future products and services. In addition, Carlson will distribute Spectrum Bridges' White Space Plus spectrum management service. Learn more in this release.
