Motorola Submits new white space device for FCC testing

Posted in TV Bands at 6:35 am by JamesNeel

As described in this article, Motorola submitted a new prototype for testing by the FCC for secondary use in the TV bands. They plan on applying two approaches to achieving non-interference. For high power devices, geolocation with a database lookup will be used. For low power devices, spectrum sensing will be used (the approach previously prototyped by Microsoft and Phillips).

Personally, I think geolocation will have to be the approach used to provide a high probability of non-interference.
