Unified Solution Towards Deployment of TV White Space in Africa

  • TV white spaces (TVWS), are seen as a key technology to enable the efficient use of scarce sub-GHz spectrum allowing for applications that may have a huge impact on internet penetration in rural parts of Africa. We first give an overview on TVWS, its use cases and highlight possible challenges against its uptake. Then we describe our carrier-grade wireless back-hauling solution (WiBACK) and discuss its capability for working with a geolocation database ensuring zero interference with licensed users.
