Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) provides a new opportunity for last-mile and rural connectivity. However, the nature of DSA and varying environmental conditions means that desired spectrum is not always available. To that end, we have deployed a testbed using both DSA-enabled TV White Space devices and fixed spectrum WiFi (5GHz) in parallel to support communication between and within townships. Using this testbed, we will develop new algorithms to support wireless mesh routing in DSA networks.
