FCC extends White Space testing as devices from Microsoft and Phillips crap out
Broadcasting & Cable offers up an article that discusses the current problems plaguing
the testing of White Space devices at the FCC. The FCC is planning to
extend lab testing that is rumored to be going very poorly for the
likes of Microsoft and Phillips. When, if ever, the lab testing ends
the Sports Video Group and its members plan on extending the
opportunity for field trials to the FCC. But David Donovan, MSTV
president, thinks the FCC has more pressing issues.“I think the FCC’s time would be better spent doing technical work on the DTV transition rather than trying to push technology that simply does not work in the lab, let alone in the real world,” Donovan said.
