White Space Radio

Wednesday, June 15th 2011

A ‘white space’ radio is in the process of being produced, though it is against the law of the country. ‘White Space’ is that vacant space or frequencies in the telecommunication system which is not utilised by a service provider in a certain locality. Spurious radio stations utilize these frequencies for illegal transmission. With the introduction of Digital Technology, analogue signals are no more necessary and as a result considerable amount of ‘white space’ is available. Ofcom is interested in converting this into mobile broadband. Neul of Cambridge is an enterprising organization, which has already produced the relevant radio. Obviously it is not licensed to do so. But it can take the permission from Ofcom to avail 16 Mb/s connection speed. In future when the license to bandwidth is no more necessary it will be packed with various radio equipment of various applications. Neul is of the opinion that such a situation can be kept in control by having a standard protocol like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi which all devices can make use of. “Weightless” is the name of the proposed protocol to be introduced shortly. Neul has invited more companies to take part in discussion on its function and operation. Neul’s website furnishes information of its network management system, base unit, terminal devices, antennas etc.
