In the last decade, wireless usage has expanded dramatically – more than double the number from a decade ago – carrying more than 100,000 times the traffic networks supported as recently as in 2008. Experts expect as many as 200 billion connected devices globally by 2020. As this “Internet of Things” emerges, the importance of ultra-high speed, high bandwidth and low latency wireless connectivity will only increase. In response to these realities, the White House office of Science and Technology Policy formally announced the Platforms Enabling Advanced Wireless Research program, led by the National Science Foundation and nonprofit organization US Ignite. Carlson Wireless Technologies is proud to join 20 other industry leading companies and organizations to support this program, by contributing American equipment, technology, and expertise in TV white spaces and dynamic spectrum sharing. We are excited about the innovations that this program will enable, which may include up to 1000x improvements in throughput over current wireless networks.
