The Weightless Special Interest group (SIG) is to hold its inaugural Plenary Session next month as the first conference dedicated to the proposed standard for a machine-to-machine communications technology that makes use of the so-called ‘white space’ bandwidth.
The event, to be held on the 8th and 9th of May at The Moller Centre, Cambridge, will be delivered by Cambridge Wireless, and its agenda addresses the need to debate updates to the Weightless Standard enabling a revised version to be issued.
Sub-groups will present recommended issues and changes to be debated by the Weightless Community. The Plenary will also provide tutorial introductions to aspects of Weightless, such as regulation and associated areas. An optional evening dinner in the historic dining hall of Queens' College will close the first day of event.
“The first Plenary meeting represents a milestone in the development of the Weightless standard, and will be the first time that all those interested in the standard gather together to propose changes and additions to the standard, to discuss the technology, usage cases and commercial developments and to plan a path towards a final and stable standard,” says Weightless CEO Professor William Webb. “It will bring together companies spanning smart metering, device testing, chipset manufacture, network deployment and much more. It will also be an excellent opportunity for those interested in learning more and joining the Weightless Standard.”
