Internet of things for rural and remote areas over TVWS backhaul

In the Internet of Things (IoT), physical objects are connected to achieve a variety of applications. Many rural and remote communities lack the fast connectivity to the Internet that will allow the advent of IoT. This project aims at providing this connectivity by exploiting unused TV channels, gradually made available by a growing number of regulators worldwide for digital communication applications. A typical application that will be featured is supervisory control and data acquisition industrial control systems, which are becoming the norm at the core of many modern industries, such as: energy, oil and gas, manufacturing, agriculture.
