White Space Radio using 802.11af Demoed
Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) says they have developed the world’s first WiFi prototype in the TV White Spaces (470 MHz~710 MHz) that is based on the IEEE 802.11af draft specification.
New standards make using carrier Wi-Fi super easy
The IEEE technical standards body is developing 802.11u and the Wi-Fi Alliance has developed its Hotspot 2.0 initiative to further define and implement the use of the new standard. The new standards will essentially define how hot spots are discovered by devices and also provide a uniform mechanism for allowing subscribers to sign on to the networks, without the user selecting a particular network or entering a password. It also provides WPA 2 security to ensure that subscribers have the same level of security they expect when they’re on a carrier’s cellular network.
