White Space networking kit will get large-scale trials later this year, to see if multiple databases and radio protocols can be deployed without knocking TV off the air. Ofcom hasn't decided who'll take part in the trials, or what parts of the country they'll cover, or even how long they'll last, but they will run this autumn …
So the question is.... if they have to contact a database first - how do they get on the internet?
As well as which - if they have to be redirected by the OFCOM website..... what happens if the OFCOM website goes offline - would a DOS attack on the OFCOM website mean all UK whitespace devices would just stop working?
