As the government looks for new revenues sources, spectrum auctions threaten the allocation for White Space. The question has to be asked “Is the White Space spectrum safe?” Is there an opportunity for over the air TV stations to jump into the White Spaces spectrum and deliver metrowide broadband service? Is the TV Reallocation legislation creating insecurity for White Spaces investors, service providers, and equipment vendors?

Cellular backhaul is a bottleneck for Cellco’s. If there is no cable company or fiber provider near the new LTE radios or at the existing towers, cellco’s are left with building fiber or paying for expensive special access. White Spaces is unlicensed and can blast through trees and foliage. With a large budget for backhaul and limited competitors, White Spaces radio vendors may have their first and most significant revenue opportunity in the form of selling backhaul to Cellcos. Is White Spaces the new alternative for cellco backhaul? The panel will talk about cellco deployments of White Spaces for backhaul in rural areas.

The Government wants to hold another spectrum auction, but the reality is that the technology is making spectrum use more dynamic. The future of spectrum can be found not only in the use of databases, but how the technologies of 4G, 5G and beyond can be deployed.
