  • The initial demand for this shared spectrum technology is for TV White Space devices. The first devices available will be high power fixed TVWS devices driven by demand for Rural Broadband Coverage, Smart City and Smart Grid applications. WISP’s, City Municipalities and Utility companies looking for access to TV White Space spectrum based on the spectrum characteristics of increased coverage and higher penetration than traditional wi-fi solutions. Other applications for Low Power Enterprise and Home Networking applications will be in the market within 12 months. We believe the deployment of fempto cells is a logical application for service providers to manage the proliferation of wireless devices in a small geographic area (with limited bandwidth). This will be a perfect solution for home networking through a set top box in the home. The future of connecting smart phones, notebooks and all things wireless will accelerate as additional bandwidth beyond wi-fi comes available through shared spectrum access technology. These solutions will be deployed by wireless carriers and other service providers to more effectively serve their customers.

    6. 6. Current State of TVWhite Space
    7. 7. What is White Space?  Wireless Devices will be certified with a database  Channel acquisition and database interaction will be virtually transparent to the end user
    8. 8. White Space Channel Availability(UHF Fixed Channels)
    9. 9. TVWS Milestones in the U.S. 2nd TVWS Report and Order FCC publishes initial NPRM on 1st TVWS Report FCC announces and Order database providers TV White Space2004 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 First TVWS database First TVWS solution Demonstration subject to FCC trial First experimental TVWS network First certified TVWS commercial solution
    10. 10. What is New About TV White Space? Spectrum Bridge expects to be appointed as the World’s First TV White Space Database Provider by the FCC. Anticipated Go Live Date is January 2012 Parallel Radio Certifications in progress with several devices Rules updates under consideration by FCC – antenna heights – access to some of the registration data – emissions mask – Fixed TVBD operation on adjacent channels The FCC leads the world in this innovative approach and the rest of the world is likely to adopt similar rules for TV White Space – UK Ofcom has ongoing trials, some differences in technical detail, but still database-driven – Industry Canada issued a TV white space consultation paper on August 29 – Standards efforts with IEEE and IETF
    11. 11. TVWS complements existing solutions FCC rules for unlicensed White Space operation are similar to those in existing 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz unlicensed bands: – Part 15 rules – 4 W EIRP – Non-exclusive use Aside from the additional capacity afforded by white space spectrum, operating in the VHF and UHF band enables improved coverage and Non- Line of Sight performance: 2.4 GHz 600 MHz
    12. 12. Global Leaders in TVWS Innovation • US First in the World to Adopt TV White Space Innovation - Successful deployments for rural broadband, Smart City, Smart Grid, tele-health, & telemetry applications • SBI actively Involved in Finland, Singapore and Cambridge, UK Trials - Anticipate more trials in 2012 • Regulators are defining rules in other countries across the world
    13. 13. Market Opportunities
