U.S. Companies Invited to Test & Trial Wireless Communications using Ireland’s Radio Spectrum
Dublin, Ireland – 16 December 2009 – Ireland’s radio spectrum regulatory agency, the Commission for Communications Regulations (ComReg) is promoting Ireland’s radio spectrum as a test-bed to companies and organizations who wish to test and trial wireless projects across all spectrum ranges.
Ireland is particularly suited as a wireless testing environment as it has a wide range of clean radio frequencies available for test and trial. This unique advantage stems from Ireland’s low use of spectrum for defense purposes, its geography, as an island Ireland is relatively free of radio spectrum interference from other countries, and Ireland’s relatively low population density. This means that organizations can test and trial wireless devices in almost any part of Ireland’s radio spectrum, including highly valued spectrum bands such as the 700 MHz band.
