MCLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) August 20, 2018
Key Bridge Wireless of McLean, VA is pleased to announce general commercial availability of our TV white space spectrum access service, providing shared spectrum access and administration throughout Canada.
“We’ve provided incumbent registration and protection without issue since receiving designation in October, 2017,” said Jesse Caulfield, Key Bridge CEO, “and we are very excited to now offer a unified spectrum access capability for the North American market.”
“I am pleased about this next step towards the availability of White Space technology as an additional broadband option for rural communities. The Government of Canada recognizes the importance of broadband, and is taking concrete action to improve access. We are committed to promoting greater competition in the telecommunications sector. White Space is another tool that smaller providers can leverage to help deliver services to Canadians” commented the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
TV white space frequencies are available for unlicensed use at locations where channels are presently used by licensed services, such as television broadcasting and professional audio plus video production.
The spectrum access system (SAS) is accessible via automated, machine to machine services. To help hardware manufacturers and network service providers access and integrate TV white space into their solution Key Bridge had released a developer web portal available at:
Resources available on the portal include tutorials, developer tools, documentation and reference software to help radio manufacturers establish integration with the Key Bridge TV white space system.
