The system will give broadband users access to more than 200 MHz of white-space radio spectrum. Volume shipments of the new system are planned before the end of 2011, with samples and development equipment available before then.

Carlson and Neul are combining their strengths to deliver a high-bandwidth product that offers unrivalled range and signal penetration. This revolutionary product is designed for use in the US, UK and beyond. With approval from both the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Ofcom (the UK’s spectrum regulatory entity), the companies plan to introduce the product to the open market by year’s end. White space technology is also applicable to a variety of other use cases, including in low-data-rate, even longer-range machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
