About us

This industry-driven centre is supported by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) with matched funding from industry, Engineering Physical Sciences Research Council and TSB grants.

White space refers to the available spectrum in the former analogue TV bands licensed by Ofcom for communications services in 2014.

Who we work with

The centre currently supports a number of PhD students and has run TSB/industry co-funded projects with partners including British Telecom, BBC, Xilinx, Motorola, and Microsoft.

Industry advisory panel

The centre is overseen by an industry advisory panel. The panel is chaired by a senior Microsoft consultant with representatives from Ofcom, industrial collaborators, and SFC. The centre has a high profile white space network on the Isle of Bute and a demonstrator network in Kenya.
