NORWALK, Conn. - May 16, 2013 - TMC and Crossfire Media have announced an exciting lineup of sessions for the Super Wi-Fi and Shared Spectrum Summit, August 27-29, 2013. The event, held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, is designed to help services providers, ISPs, MSOs and broadcasters deliver on the promise of unlicensed spectrum solutions. This event now includes a substantial amount of content addressing not only the TV White Spaces (TVWS) opportunity but other shared spectrum solutions as well.

The Super Wi-Fi and Shared Spectrum (News - Alert) Summit's agenda will feature valuable sessions on alternative wireless spectrum strategies, technological features and functionality, policy and regulations and more. The event's programming is designed to strengthen the shared spectrum community's understanding of new innovations and technology's true potential, as well as the business and technical issues surrounding it.

The full agenda is available on the Super Wi-Fi and Shared Spectrum Summit website. Featured sessions include:
  • How FCC (News - Alert) regulation and Incentive Auctions will impact the White Spaces Opportunity
  • What commercial rollouts have taken place and the effect on future commercialization of WS
  • The features, functionality and market readiness of White Spaces radios
  • The options for White Spaces licensing- Unlicensed vs. Lightly Licensed
  • How White Spaces may be embedded in tablets and Smartphones
  • White Spaces vs. LTE (News - Alert) or White Spaces + LTE?
  • Spectrum Sensing receivers and White Spaces handsets - How far are we from this?
  • How White Spaces will support the WISP's business plans

"TV White Space spectrum was the precedent in alternative spectrum solutions. Now we have the principles associated with using databases for geo isolation to enable us to expand into other spectrum blocks," said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media and conference chairman for Super Wi-Fi Summit. "The Super Wi-Fi and Shared Spectrum Summit will focus on these exciting new spectrum options and will show attendees how they can capitalize on these unlicensed solutions.
