The event will focus on areas of spectrum innovation such as 5G, M2M communications and spectrum sharing- as well as how Ofcom plans to meet future spectrum demands.
'The upcoming white space pilot is a very exciting development, which has attracted an impressive line-up of participants, ranging from global tech giants to innovative
'This is likely to deliver large benefits to society; however there isn't an unlimited supply of spectrum to meet this extraordinary demand. This is why we need to explore new ways of unlocking the potential of spectrum - like white space technology - to get the most from this valuable national resource.'
NOTES FOR EDITORS
1. The table below lists the organisations that have expressed an interest in taking in part in Ofcom's white space trial, along with a brief summary of what they propose to trial. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a more detailed overview of each organisation's proposals.

3. The BT and Neul trial will involve a small network of white space transmitters to send data on traffic congestion and varying traffic conditions to vehicles, which would themselves contain white space devices which could also broadcast data about their speed and position. This trial will test the technical viability of networks which in future might help to regulate the smooth flow of road traffic across the country, as well as relaying live information to drivers.
4. Information about the
5. To test this concept, this will initially involve gathering basic information, such as air temperature and humidity, which will feed into a live map of the city that can be accessed by the public. However, in the future, white spaces could be used to create more sophisticated applications, where dense networks of sensors provide live information on traffic flow and consumption of water and electricity. Using this data could help to make cities more efficient.
6. Click4internet will also be deploying white space technology for moving vehicles and boats. Because TV white space signals travel further than many other forms of wireless technologies, they could improve the coverage and performance of wireless broadband services on moving vehicles.
