FCC Issues First White Space Approvals
Washington - Dec 22, 2011 - The Federal Communications Commission has issued a public notice on the approval Spectrum Bridge's television white spaces database system, which may provide service to devices beginning Jan. 26, 2012.
The FCC has also approved a device by Koos Technical Services (KTS) as the first product allowed to operate on an unlicensed basis on unused frequencies (white spaces) in the TV bands. The KTS device will operate in conjunction with the Spectrum Bridge TV-band database.
Commission rules require that unlicensed TV band devices contact an authorized database system to obtain a list of channels that are available for their operation (i.e., channels not occupied by authorized radio services) at their individual locations and must operate only on those channels. Initial operation under this approval will be limited to Wilmington, NC, and the surrounding area.
