Global TV White Space Spectrum Market: Overview
TV white space (TVWS) spectrum refers to unused spectrum or frequencies that lie between the active frequencies of the very high frequency (VHF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) spectrum. These channels, also called buffer channels, are typically made available for unlicensed use at locations where the frequencies are not being used by any licensed services. Researches have confirmed that these frequencies can be used without causing interferences to the existing spectrum. A large number of technology and telecom providers use this spectrum to provide broadband Internet services.
Introduction of low-power devices and the increasing utilization of TVWS for Internet connectivity to various non-line-of-sight places have led to the fast evolution of the TVWS spectrum market. Coupled with this, recent market developments indicating a host of favorable government regulations to allocate the unused spectrum to private players have offered robust background for the growth of the market.
