This week, the Austin Convention Center will be filled to the brim with the latest computer technology, and Carlson CEO Jim Carlson will be at the heart of it all, demonstrating the inner workings of Super Wi-Fi technology.
Located in the Demo Pavilion, Carlson’s demonstration will show how software-defined TV white-space radios like Carlson’s RuralConnect interact with the databases that map available channels around the country, preventing interference and allowing broadband users to share the VHF/UHF spectrum with TV stations.
RuralConnect determines its GPS location, requests available channels from the database, and uses the list the database returns to establish a wireless broadband network where none was available before — in rural regions that have not enjoyed broadband because of environmental barriers like foliage and rough terrain.
In addition to the demo, Jim Carlson will also provide an update on the real-life trials Carlson is participating in for this experimental technology at the “Trials Rollout Report” Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
Carlson will also talk about the possibilities that TV white-space technology has for rural backhaul at “White Spaces Backhaul: What Is the Opportunity?” Tuesday at 11 a.m.
If you’re attending ITEXPO or the 4G Wireless Evolution Conference, we invite you to stop by the demo or attend one of the sessions. Carlson looks forward to answering your questions.
