Singapore trials longrange Wi-Fi

Singapore has begun a six-month trial to provide low-cost long-range wireless connectivity for data transmission using the broadcast band known as TV White Space (TVWS).

The trial–conducted jointly by the Singapore Land Authority, GovTech, and the country’s civil aviation authority– will take place on five islands, chosen due to their popularity with day trippers.

“TVWS can potentially be an affordable and reliable solution to enable technologies such as sensors, IoT and robotics to be deployed in areas of Singapore with limited 4G and Wi-Fi coverage,” Lim Chinn Hwa, Senior Director (Smart Nation Platform Solutions), GovTech told Cities Today. “With this trial in the southern islands, GovTech hopes to expand public agencies’ situational awareness in operational and urban planning, bringing about improved manpower efficiency.”
