People

4billion

unconnected globally

Bringing affordable rural broadband access to underserved regions around the globe.

57% of the world’s population—over 4 billion people—lacks access to the internet. Addressing this digital divide in rural or remote areas presents a tremendous challenge with existing technologies, but it also presents a significant opportunity for business, service providers, and countries.

Adaptrum is bringing affordable broadband access to underserved regions around the globe with a simple, reliable technology solution. Leveraging TVWS technology, we help service providers build a profitable and sustainable business while connecting the unconnected with long-range non-line-of-sight wireless broadband.

Solving the challenges
of the digital divide

TVWS provides a universal solution for the key
challenges facing rural broadband service providers

Cost-Barrier

Dynamic Spectrum Access

Unlicensed access of prime TV band spectrum
Zero expensive spectrum to be bought or leased

Easy for operators to build a scalable business that can serve anywhere from a single customer to an entire country.

The only way to serve those customers is with Adaptrum TV white space technology, otherwise, they would not have a connection

Communities

10million

people in the US rely on public libraries for internet access

Making communities safer and smarter through affordable blanket connectivity.

The digital divide doesn’t just apply to the remote and rural regions of the world. Lack of access to affordable broadband impacts many urban communities, especially in areas of high-poverty. Lacking access to affordable internet, 10’s of millions in the US rely on libraries to get online including over 5 million school children who lack internet access at home. Many others rely on similar access at schools and other public buildings.

Leveraging public infrastructure such as schools, libraries, and other anchor institutions, TV Whitespace technology provides an affordable and scalable solution to build ubiquitous metro-broadband networks that can connect communities to help improve employment, education, health, and safety.

With Adaptrum’s TV Whitespace solution, local governments and community organizations can:

  • Provide public internet access
  • Foster economic development
  • Improve productivity
  • Attract new businesses

Things

50billion

connected IoT devices by 2020

Affordable & Proven Broadband Connectivity for the Internet of Things

The need for ubiquitous broadband connectivity extends far beyond people to the machines and devices that power our world behind the scenes. By 2020, 50 billion smart devices are expected to require connectivity. To get many of these things online will require expanding connectivity across vast, often rural spaces.

Adaptrum’s TVWS technology offers the combined benefits of reliable long-range connectivity alongside broadband performance to reach to the sensors, devices, and machines of the IoT.

Adaptrum

Wide-Area Coverage

  • Reach sensors and machines across areas spanning hundreds of square kilometers
  • Connect across rugged and complex terrain without requiring line-of-sight or expensive infrastructure
Adaptrum

Rugged Radios

  • Sealed and ruggedized construction to withstand the harshest environments
  • Achieve extended outdoor life anywhere around the world
Adaptrum

Broadband Connectivity

  • Provide high speed, low latency connectivity required to utilize big data and cloud analytics
  • Aggregate data from many devices or provide a few devices broadband access
  • Low latency links allows time-sensitive applications providing real-time analytics and process controls
Adaptrum

Flexible networks

  • Large variety of IoT applications necessitates more than a one-size-fits-all network
  • Flexible architecture and low barrier-to-entry so networks are built as needed, where needed, when needed

Powering up the IoT with

TVWS

Why use TVWS for the Internet of Things?
As devices get smarter and more intelligence is added to the systems that manage and monitor the Internet of Things, simply getting devices online with legacy or low-rate connections isn’t enough.
Unlocking the potential of smart devices and future-proofing your IoT solutions requires broadband connectivity – it requires TVWS wireless.
