“Ireland has the opportunity to establish itself as a spectrum playground. We should see where that takes us.” Professor Linda Doyle, Director, CTVR
On Wednesday, 26th September 2012, CTVR hosted a one day workshop titled Filling the White Spaces. The attendance on the day was excellent and the workshop attracted great interest from companies such as ESB, RTE to major mobile communicators such as Imagine and Meteor. The workshop proved to be a great success. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, you may read about it here in an Irish Times interview with Professor Linda Doyle, Director, CTVR, and organiser of Filling the White Spaces.

The workshop questioned how this valuable unused spectrum will be utilised, by who and how will they access it? Filling the White Spaces informed the audience of the many opportunities available and ways in which it can be used by highlighting trials conducted in the UK and US.
