The Singapore White Spaces Pilot Group (SWSPG) is organizing a Global Summit on Dynamic Spectrum Access and TV White Spaces on June 17th, 2013 at SICC, Singapore. The conference will have a full day of interactive discussions, keynote presentations, networking and reports of the many commercial deployments both in Singapore and around the World. The conference will be of value to government officials, communications regulators, private companies, development agencies and any other parties looking for more cost-effective wireless connectivity solutions and more efficient spectrum utilization.
An abundant and renewable supply of spectrum is fundamental to the sustainable growth of the global digital economy. We believe that one key solution lies in Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA), a paradigm shift in how spectrum is managed and used, both from a policy and technology perspective. An immediate opportunity in DSA lies within the TV White Spaces (TVWS), the unused TV broadcast channels. The first TVWS networks are being deployed at scale, field trials have been conducted on four continents and the first commercial deployments have been launched. Policy-makers are already looking forward to unleashing further dynamic spectrum sharing opportunities.
Audiences will learn about regulatory best practices, the latest technology developments, demonstrations of the first TVWS radio chipsets and equipment, emerging global TVWS standards, and inspiring applications and services enabled by TVWS. The conference will feature the Singapore White Spaces Pilot Group, who will share what has been learnt from Asia’s most comprehensive TV White Spaces commercial pilots to date.
