TelecomView Report Identifies How Smart Radio Technology will Multiply the Digital Dividend

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 26, 2007– Regulators globally are grappling with the Digital Dividend as analog TV services are replaced by digital.  Should they allocate the spectrum for new uses or let smart radio technology shape the market?  These questions are addressed by TelecomView’s new report Smart Radio Technology-and the Digital Dividend.

“The Digital Dividend will create significant opportunities for both licensed and license exempt applications.” stated Ian Cox, Principal Analyst at TelecomView and author of the report. “Bringing Smart Radio technology into the mix will maximize the traffic that this spectrum can carry and create new license exempt opportunities for wireless ISPs and metro deployments.”

The report discusses plans for switching off analog TV in the UHF spectrum along with the new capabilities that Smart Radio technology brings. Smart radio technology include both centralized systems where GPS based location services are used to identify locally available spectrum as well as self learning techniques that allow the radio to adapt to local conditions. The report describes the regulatory issues that all of this presents and describes the significant benefits that may ensue.

“The superior ability of this UHF spectrum to penetrate structures can create quite positive business cases for a variety of wireless services,” stated Bob Larribeau Principal Analyst at TelecomView. “Our previous reports Broadband Strategies for the Fixed Market and Investing in Mobile TV identified these benefits in detail.”

This 16 page report addresses these issues and provides the information and analysis that wireless operators, and system suppliers need to prepare for the opportunities that these changes will bring.

This report is available from TelecomView for $500. For more information about it contact TelecomView at +1 415 241 9920 or +44 1626 834 224. More information and free white papers are available at or [email protected].
