Carlson Wireless is gearing up for the live demonstration of RuralConnect, our new TV white-space radio, in Orlando, Fla. next week.
CEO Jim Carlson will be heading to the FISPA/WISPA Service Provider Summit next week to show wireless Internet service providers what this breakthrough product can do for rural broadband. The live demo will take place at 1:10 p.m. on Friday, March 25.
RuralConnect uses VHF/UHF signal, which propagates better than Wi-Fi for greater range and non-line-of-sight performance. This is good news for those rural residents who haven’t been able to get broadband to their homes and businesses before.
At the demo, Jim Carlson will offer a presentation about the technology and is looking forward to answering any questions attendees may have. Also in attendance will be Spectrum Bridge, one of the nine companies the FCC has appointed to manage the new national spectrum database. Moderating the demo is Jack Unger, chairman of WISPA’s FCC Committee.
The FISPA/WISPA Summit will be held Wednesday, March 23 through Friday, March 25 at the Sheraton Orlando North in Orlando. This is the first joint conference of the two trade associations for Internet service providers, Wireless Internet Service Provider Association (WISPA) and the Federation of Internet Solution Providers of the Americas (FISPA).
The FISPA/WISPA Summit also includes workshops, vendors and networking opportunities and features three informational tracks: regulatory, technical and business. The regulatory track also includes a presentation, “TV White Spaces: Next Steps,” scheduled for Thursday, March 24 at 11:10 a.m.
