Channel clearance and new transmission standards

In many regions of the world, spectrum clearance and channel repack programs are either currently taking place or waiting to be implemented. The transition to new transmission standards will allow more efficient use of bandwidth and spectrum and make it possible to offer enhanced services. In these times of change, network operators need suitable strategies that allow them to continue providing today’s services without disruptions - while also preparing a seamless switchover to tomorrow’s services.

One World Trade Center: Broadcasting is back with Rohde & Schwarz

One World Trade Center is the tallest building in New York City and the most prestigious address for broadcasters in the United States of America. Six out of seven national broadcasters, such as WPXN (ION Media), WNET (PBS), and WWOR (FOX), have chosen to deploy the R&S®THU9evo for their primary broadcasts from One World Trade Center in New York City, but WNJU was the first station to move in.

Rohde und Schwarz - your US repack specialist

Rohde & Schwarz – your US repack specialist

In 2012, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was tasked with repacking the licensed broadcast spectrum to make room for wireless broadband. Now, with auctioning of the spectrum complete, the FCC estimates about 1,200 stations will be affected by the clearing of 84MHz of spectrum – and each of those stations will have a little more than three years to transition to their new channel assignments.
