Broadband Wireless Delivery Using An Inside-Out TV White Space Network Architecture

In this paper, the authors investigate the feasibility of wireless broadband delivery using an "Inside-Out" community network architecture, where residential broadband customers share a portion of their home Access Point bandwidth for outdoor public use. They use system simulation studies performed for real-life BT FON service scenarios in the UK to investigate the feasibility of a blanket wireless broadband coverage provision in various residential environments using this architecture. It is found that due to interference effects it is in principle not possible to achieve blanket coverage using WiFi Access Points operating in the 2.4 GHz band, even when there is 100% penetration of Access Point.
