    Where does TV White Space fit in the whole schema of wireless broadband access/backhaul?

    For the United States, the technical requirements for white space channels that were part of the analog TV spectrum allocation have not been defined by the FCC as of yet. Don’t expect to see the requirements announced for at least three years and the technologies that will be able to exploit them.

    I really value this info. Thanks for posting this one. I also have this query: Why is it that the answer for LTE capacity shortfall is the small cell backhaul?

    Hello Diane,

    Small cell backhaul is only part of the answer for LTE capacity shortfall. In-home femto cells, WiFi offloading, caching and other technologies will all play a part in solving the LTE capacity shortfall. There will not be a universal solution.
