This paper investigates how suitable TV White Space (TVWS) is for use by cellular networks. Unlike in licensed bands, transmit power in TVWS is limited and considerable interference from TV towers exists. This suggests that evaluating TVWS only in terms of available bandwidth can be misleading, since performance of wireless networks in TVWS is likely lower than in the same amount of dedicated spectrum. We quantify TVWS at the example of Germany, using the European methodology developed in CEPT… CONTINUE READING
