FCC TV Whitespaces Ruling

The FCC just adopted a ruling allowing the operation of unlicensed wireless devices in television whitespaces while putting in place numerous safeguards to protect incumbent services including TV stations and wireless microphones. This is an exciting and welcome development that will spur innovation and result in the development of wireless technologies and products that can take advantage of this valuable spectrum to deliver the benefits of wireless broadband to consumers and municipal governments alike.

Check out this whitepaper that discusses the implications of this important ruling and outlines Tropos' position on the value that unlicensed operation in whitespaces has the potential to unlock.
