Assuming regulations are in place – allowing Wi-Fi, LTE, and other wireless communications over TV White Space (TVWS) – spectrum harvesting could be the answer to the impending bandwidth crunch. These industry leading panelists will discuss the future of the space, key use-cases for this technology, and what will be required to make spectrum harvesting a viable solution without interference to incumbents and peer users.
