First TV White Space deployment in Oman
May 10, 2017
Adaptrum, a specialist in TV White Space (TVWS) technologies, has announced the completion of a successful pilot deployment with Oman Broadband Company in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. Marking the first time that TV White Space is being deployed in the Middle East, the project demonstrated the ability to provide broadband communications to far flung places in Oman.
Oman Broadband CEO Eng. Said Al-Mandhari says, “Universal access to broadband in Oman is essential to unlock the potential and boost growth in an increasingly knowledge-based economy, and Oman Broadband has been tasked with rolling out broadband infrastructure to provide that access. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of Oman mandated us to conduct trials of TVWS technology. The combination of coverage and capacity, delivered by TVWS Technology using Adaptrum’s solution, enables us to extend the reach of our broadband infrastructure especially for remote and rural areas.”
