Colombia Finalizes TV White Spaces Regulations
Tuesday, August 29, 2017 | Comments

Agencia Nacional del Espectro (ANE), the Colombian spectrum regulatory agency, published its final regulations for TV white space (TVWS). Colombia is the first country in Latin America to finalize its TVWS regulations.

TVWS technology uses otherwise unused or unassigned spectrum in the UHF and VHF bands otherwise allocated for broadcasting. TVWS-based technologies operate on a secondary basis without causing interference to primary users, such as broadcast licensees.

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) applauded the new regulations. “We congratulate the government of Colombia and ANE for becoming the first in Latin America to finalize its TVWS regulations, and applaud the way ANE has continually advocated for innovative spectrum policies to benefit Colombia’s citizens,” said Kalpak Gude, DSA president.

Many commercial applications for TVWS regulations are already in use in projects around the world, including in Europe, North America and Africa.
