White Spaces Ireland

October 2, 2012

We held an event called ‘Filling the White Spaces’ in the Science Gallery last week.  It focused on the fact that the Analogue TV signal in Ireland is being turned off on Oct 24th and we have oceans of spectrum here to ‘get it right’ and ‘do something great’.  See our counter here.

We have posted details of the event online. You can see slides, discussion notes and photos there.

The event was very well attended and in response to the interest , Tim Forde and myself have decided to create White Spaces Ireland.  As you will see from the website White Spaces Ireland aims

  1. To disseminate information about the latest advances in spectrum access techniques
  2. To foster white space trials within Ireland that will support innovation, identify commercial opportunities and assimilate evidence for policy development and legislation
  3. To promote Ireland as a Spectrum Playground
  4. To support the goal of providing all citizens, businesses, and institutions within Ireland with access to high-quality broadband so that Ireland can reach its full economic potential.

We are currently working with interested parties in beginning the process of identifying trial opportunities., which I have to say is very exciting. Though White Spaces Ireland is open to all, even those not planning to be involved in trials.
