Alliance welcomes interested companies to help alleviate the spectrum crunch, enable the Internet of Things and close the digital divide

1 December 2014: AirTies, Aruba Networks, ATDI, Broadcom, and Saankhya Labs are the latest members to join the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance, with Broadcom and Aruba Networks being elected to its Board of Directors. The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance welcomes new members as it continues to advocate for laws and regulations that lead to more efficient and effective spectrum utilization, thereby helping governments around the globe address key policy challenges around making Internet access more ubiquitous and more affordable and improving the lives of their citizens.

Broadcom is a global leader and innovator in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communication. Founded in 2004, AirTies designs and develops software and hardware to wirelessly stream high definition video to multiple rooms and screens. For over a decade Aruba Networks has provided access management, network infrastructure and mobility application solutions that enable the creation of next-generation mobility networks. As the first France-based company to join the Alliance, ATDI designs, develops, and publishes software focused on radio planning, spectrum management, monitoring, digital cartography, network design and optimization. Saankhya Labs, based in India, joins the Alliance and is an innovative fabless semiconductor company providing Software Defined Radio (SDR) based ICs and modules for video, audio, and data communication.

“Governments around the world recognize that expanding Internet access is key to their economic growth as it will help them deliver healthcare, education, emergency communications, and other government services to their citizens, as well as enable a new generation of small- and medium-sized businesses and increase output for key sectors such as agriculture. Having just toured Asia and Africa, it is clear that leading regulators and policymakers now recognize that these goals can only be achieved with increased reliance on dynamic spectrum sharing regimes” said Prof. H Nwana, Executive Director of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance. “There is no better endorsement of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance’s policy platform than the addition of significant companies like AirTies, Aruba Networks, ATDI, Broadcom, and Saankhya Labs. Adding the first French and Indian companies to the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance demonstrates that this is a truly global movement, which is gaining momentum. We welcome these new members and invite other companies and organizations to join the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance.”

“These new members are joining at the end of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance’s first full year as an incorporated entity, signifying both a growing need for efficient spectrum allocation and a resounding endorsement of our spectrum policy positions. The world is changing rapidly and so must spectrum policy, especially as we increasingly move further into the digital age.”
