Super Wi-Fi: How it Works

The most common implementation of Super Wi-Fi networks will be accessed using smart, radio-enabled devices that report their location to an Internet database. The database will tell the device which TV white spaces channels, and at what power level, it is permitted to operate on in its current location. The database has a list of all protected TV stations and frequencies across the country, so the devices can avoid causing interference to TV broadcasts and
wireless microphone signals. This technology is truly dynamic – as different TV channels become available, Super Wi-Fi devices that can opportunistically switch from one group of channels to another. This win-win translates to greater network capacity, allowing a greater number of users in a given area while, at the same time, protecting television reception from interference. All of this engineering will be invisible to the consumer, who will simply experience more ubiquitous broadband connectivity.
