The world is getting more inter-connected with the bulk of the new connections being wireless. With infinite demands but finite supply of wireless spectrum, spectrum crunch begins to happen. Whizpace provides communication solutions to harness underutilized spectrum in an opportunistic manner using intelligent technologies to enable better utilization of spectrum. They start with the opportunistic use of TV spectrum using this technology which is termed as TV White Space or a.k.a. Super Wi-Fi.
Whizpace is a spinoff from Singapore’s national research organisation, A*STAR. They specialize in developing products using TVWS technology where their wireless solutions can reach very long distance and penetrate through obstacles. With these characteristics, many applications which were previously challenging are now made possible. In particular, they are adopting TVWS to connect the next 3 billion people that are currently unconnected and at the same time addressing the huge opportunities in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) markets.
