Welcome to the Botswana Institute of Technology Research and Innovation Television White Spaces (TVWS) Geo-location Spectrum Database (GLSDB).
The Geo-location spectrum databases have the benefits of facilitating TVWS network deployment. It also offers a tool to minimize interference to primary TV spectrum users, promote efficient radio frequency (RF) utilization. Geo Location Spectrum Databases are currently a preferred means to guide dynamic spectrum access regulations by leading regulators due to their reliability over other options such as spectrum detection and interference minimization. This website hosts such a database to enable a shared spectrum broadband networks utilizing TV band spectrum. Currently, the operation of the database is confined to give available TVWS channels at any given location within Botswana.
