White Spaces advocates form Dynamic Spectrum Alliance

Wednesday 19 June 2013 | 08:41 CET | News

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) is a new global organisation founded by over 20 partners working on technologies to increase the amount of available spectrum by using so-called White Spaces. The DSA will promote regulatory policies to pave the way for dynamic spectrum access technologies, starting with the use of unused TV frequencies. Founding members include multinationals, SMEs, academics and research organisations. The DSA will work on closing the digital divide, enabling the Internet of Things and alleviating the "Spectrum Crunch".

The group states that spectrum sharing technology is beginning to be commercialised, as evidenced by technical trials, demonstrations and commercial pilots in Cape Town, Cambridge, Helsinki, Isle of Bute, Kenya, Singapore and other places. The DSA 's focus will include policies for spectrum technology to extend rural broadband, support ‘smart cities’ and provide enough bandwidth to end users when and where they need it.

The founding companies and organisations are 6Harmonics, Adaptrum, BSkyB, Carlson, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research – South Africa, Computer and Communication Research Center - Taiwan, Indigo Telecom, InterDigital, Microsoft, MediaTek, Network Startup Resource Center (University of Oregon), Neul, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology – Japan (NICT), RealTek, Ruckus Wireless, Singapore Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), StarHub, Strathclyde Centre For White Space Communications, Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH), Taiwan Institute for Information Industry, UhuruOne, WaveTek and White Space Technologies Africa.
