The TVWS spectrum market is currently undergoing various trials and deployments at several test sites worldwide. The market has a presence of several small, medium, and well-established players that offer the TVWS technology to cater to diverse end-user needs. Over the past few years, the TVWS spectrum has witnessed a moderate growth as the regulations related to the TVWS technology have been officially passed by three countries only—the U.S., the U.K. and Singapore. However, the TVWS technology is still under trials in various countries in Africa, Europe, and APAC. Some of the major companies operating in the TVWS spectrum market are Aviacomm Inc. (U.S.), Adaptrum, Inc. (U.S.), ATDI S.A. (France), Carlson Wireless Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Alphabet Inc. (U.S.), Key Bridge LLC (U.S.), KTS Wireless (U.S.), Microsoft Corp. (U.S.), MELD Technology Inc. (U.S.), Metric Systems Corp. (U.S.), Spectrum Bridge Inc. (U.S.), Shared Spectrum Company (U.S.), and Telcordia Technologies, Inc. (iconectiv) (U.S.), among others.
The key TVWS technology providers from North America led the TVWS spectrum market in 2015. These companies provide their offerings worldwide and are focusing on expanding their position in the key markets in APAC and RoW. Some of the major companies have adopted strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, partnerships, agreements, collaborations, new product launches, capacity expansions, and joint ventures to expand their global presence and increase their market share.
Rural Internet access, urban connectivity, emergency and public safety, smart grid networks, transportation & logistics, vehicle broadband access, and IOT and M2M are some of the key application areas for TVWS spectrum. The TVWS spectrum market for rural Internet access is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Microsoft Corp. (U.S.) and Carlson Wireless Technologies (U.S.) have a strong presence in the global TVWS spectrum market and are expected to launch several new products and services by 2022, customized to suit various end-user needs.
Microsoft Corp. (U.S.) is one of the first entrants to participate in the TVWS spectrum projects worldwide. In December 2008, it established a Kognitiv Networking Over White Spaces (KNOWS) project offering software defined radios, cognitive radios, and multi-radio systems over a wide range of frequencies. In addition, the company has collaborated with various governments worldwide to undertake trial projects in several countries. For instance, it has participated in a pilot project in India besides launching Africa’s first commercial network service in Ghana using TVWS. This would enable the students to have their own Internet bundles, determine their usage, and purchase Internet-enabled device for enhanced productivity. These deployments and collaborations with various governments would help the company establish itself as a front runner in commercializing the TVWS technology and garnering a wide customer base in future.
Carlson Wireless Technologies, Inc., one of the leading pioneers in the development of white space network technologies, offers a wide range of microwave and UHF radio products for high-capacity data and voice delivery systems. The company focuses on developing a wide range of high-performance digital radios, offering white space solutions for the public safety, oil and gas, utilities and power, and IoT and M2M markets. Moreover, it has partnered with various industry bodies such as Dynamic Spectrum Alliance, White Space Alliance, and White Space Pilot Group, among others, to fully commercialize its white space network technologies. These initiatives would help the company garner more white space projects, thereby generating more revenues.
