+ - FCC Publishes 'White Spaces' Rules

Submitted by
Stellian
Stellian writes "The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a Second Report and Order that establishes rules to allow new, sophisticated wireless devices to operate in broadcast television spectrum on a secondary basis at locations where that spectrum is open. It's the first time we have access to clear specifications for these devices, dubbed TVBDs — 'TV band devices' by the FCC. The published guidelines allow manufactures to create protocols and build compatible devices, which could be available in 18 Months, according to Larry Page.
The full PDF text of this Second R&O is published on the FCC site."
