Networking Over White Spaces (KNOWS)

The next generation of wireless networks will include software defined radios, cognitive radios, and multi-radio systems which will co-exist harmoniously while operating over a very wide range of frequencies. Under the umbrella of the KNOWS project we are revisiting "classical" wireless networking problems and designing new solutions that incorporate and build upon recent advances in software and hardware technologies for networking over the recently opened white spaces spectrum.

Policy

We were invited by the FCC to particpate on a few panels.

We have also demonstrated our white space system to spectrum regulators from various countries, including delegations from:
