“As IP traffic continues to grow exponentially around the world, spectrum has become an increasingly rare and valuable commodity,” said Tareq Bustami, vice president of product management for Freescale’s Digital Networking business. “TTP’s white space solution helps to unlock the value of idle TV band spectrum and deliver affordable broadband to historically underserved markets. Freescale is pleased that the performance and power efficiency of its embedded small cell technologies will play a key role in TTP’s compelling new product.”
TTP is an established leader in white space development and was one of the first to demonstrate the potential of using TV spectrum for the delivery of broadband by linking its head offices in Hertfordshire, UK, to a rural village in Cambridgeshire in 2012.
