NICT, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Achieve Long-range Broadband Communication Using The White Space


The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and Hitachi Kokusai recently succeeded in the first field trial in which long-range broadband communications in the TV white space was confirmed by using IEEE 802.22-based and IEEE 802.11af-based systems.

In the trial, NICT and Hitachi Kokusai observed successful downstream and upstream data transmission at 12.7 km distance between IEEE 802.22-based base station and customer premises equipment, at speeds of 5.2 Mbps and 4.5Mbps, respectively.

In addition, NICT and Hitachi Kokusai constructed a multihop network by using IEEE 802.22 as a backbone link and IEEE 802.11af, which is connected to it, to expand its connection area. Wireless LAN, based on conventional IEEE 802.11b/g/n in 2.4 GHz band, was attached to IEEE 802.11af station through which conventional off-the-shelf devices were connected to the Internet. Using the devices, NICT and Hitachi Kokusai demonstrated availability of web access and conversation via video telephone.

An original function has been also developed based on IEEE 802.22 to operate in multiple channels. With two discontinuous TV channels to operate at the same time, they have succeeded in achieving throughput of 15.5 Mbps in downstream and 9.0 Mbps in upstream over 6.3 km.

Demand for broadband communication services in mountainous areas and remote islands have been problematic. To provide the services, a wireless system is required as a cost effective service comparing to wired networking. White space in TV band (470-710 MHz, in Japan) is expected for long-range communication whereas a legacy system using higher frequency such as wireless LAN and cellular systems cover shorter range, since lower frequency has generally low impact on distance decay toward obstacles.

The Japanese scientists demonstrated some applications such as video monitoring of roads and cliffs and video telephone in a mountainous area where there is no wired Internet connection available or broadband wireless Internet connection.

These achievements show feasibility of broadband services in rural areas and supporting communications in case of disasters.
