  • 1. White Space Radio inIndustrial SCADA Systems:Narrowband to Broadband February 19, 2013
  • 2. Agility White Space Radio (AWR) Access the Utility of UHF Spectrum FCC Certified Solution for Agriculture Logistics/Asset Tracking Oil & Gas Utilities: Water/Energy Perimeter Defense/Security Intelligent Transportation  Broadband to SCADA+ data rates  Compact and surprisingly efficient  Alternative to congested 900 MHz ISM band  Enable non-line-of-site links
  • 3. KTS Wireless White Space Strategy •Telemetry Plus Market •SCADA Migration: Narrowband to Broadband Broadband •Modulation Focused on Robustness and Range •High Bandwidth •Short Range (BPSK/QPSK) •LOS operation •World’s First FCC-certified White Space RadioThroughput White Space (UHF) Extended Range NLOS Performance Video Bandwidth Unlicensed Spectrum Narrow Band •Low Bandwidth White Space Technology Enables •Long Range Growth in SCADA+ Applications Range
  • 4. Performance Metrics and Data
  • 5. What’s in the box… AWR Kit Antenna (Sold Separately) 3-4 ft Cable (N to TNC) AWR (Hub or Spoke Capable) Pole Mount Kit N-female RF Interface PoE Ethernet Interface
  • 6. Case Study: Perimeter Security Wilmington, NCChallenge: Can Public Safety wirelessvideo surveillance equipment be deployedcost effectively in a difficult environmentalcondition, without disturbing the naturalsetting?•Arlie Gardens - A Southern treasureoffering formal gardens, wildlife, historicstructures, walking trails, sculptures, 10-acres of freshwater lakes and more than100,000 azaleas.•Successfully installed Hub & Spokeconfigurations ranging from 0.25-0.75 milewith bandwidth up to 2 Mbps. “…connecting Airlie to Wi-Fi would have “…connecting Airlie to Wi-Fi would havecost aafortune and been impossible cost fortune and been impossiblewithout digging up the ground to trench without digging up the ground to trenchwires.” Jim McDaniel, Director wires.” Jim McDaniel, Director
  • 7. Case Study: Environmental MonitoringNew Hanover County, NC Water Quality Monitoring in Intracoastal Waterway and Tidal Creeks Challenge: Provide a cost effective solution to wirelessly access water quality monitors in difficult and hard to reach environmental locations represented all around the county. •The KTS AWR using UHF frequencies successfully closed long distance links through difficult outdoor terrain. •The AWR can provide Broadband or SCADA+ data rates. •The AWR is well suited to Solar Powered applications and is a proven outdoor solution. This technology enables remote monitoring and management of wetland areas This technology enables remote monitoring and management of wetland areas eliminating the costs of physically driving or boating to collect data. eliminating the costs of physically driving or boating to collect data.
  • 8. Case Study: Precision AgricultureWireless Farm ApplicationsChallenge: Provide reliable wireless connectivityfor applications which require range and signalintegrity beyond that provided by Wi-Fi or 900MHztechnologies to enable:•Autonomous Vehicles Control•Irrigation Pivot Automation•Water sensor/well monitoring•Video Security•Sensor backhaul “Now this is something I Ican work with.” “Now this is something can work with.” Dustin Springman, Ag-Technologies Dustin Springman, Ag-Technologies
  • 9. Case Study: Logistics ManagementWhite Space-Enabled RFID/RTLS Systems Challenge: Provide improved connectivity to Wi-Fi enabled inventory scanners over very large and dynamic industrial properties where site-wide Wi-Fi deployments failed or were too complicated and expensive. “We quickly recognized that the white space solution worked where the previous wireless “We quickly recognized that the white space solution worked where the previous wireless technology did not. ItItprovided us with consistent coverage and worked well with our technology did not. provided us with consistent coverage and worked well with our applications that require constant and reliable connectivity… ititcontinues to work perfectly.” applications that require constant and reliable connectivity… continues to work perfectly.” Leigh Olson, Waterloo Implements Leigh Olson, Waterloo Implements Scalable White Space Solutions - Light up part of the yard, or the whole yard!

  • 14. White Space Spectrum• Spectrum Availability– Rural vs. Urban– 250m HAAT limit– www.SpectrumBridge.com• Registration Process• Enables co-existence• Comments Regarding FCC Incentive Auctions: “In the white space and unlicensed operations section, we propose measures that… “In the white space and unlicensed operations section, we propose measures that… would make aasubstantial amount of spectrum available for unlicensed uses, would make substantial amount of spectrum available for unlicensed uses, including a significant portion that would be available on a uniform nationwide including a significant portion that would be available on a uniform nationwide basis for the first time. Television white spaces will continue to be available for basis for the first time. Television white spaces will continue to be available for unlicensed use in the repacked television band.” Ref: NPRM 12-118 unlicensed use in the repacked television band.” Ref: NPRM 12-118
