The IEEE has published the IEEE 802.22 standard, intended to provide wireless broadband access in rural areas using "white spaces" between occupied over-the-air TV channels. It's designed to cover a large area up to 100 km from the transmitter and deliver up to 22 Mbps per channel without interfering with reception of existing TV broadcast stations.

IEEE 802.22 incorporates cognitive radio capabilities including dynamic spectrum access, incumbent database access, geolocation techniques, spectrum sensing, regulatory domain dependent policies, spectrum etiquette, and coexistence for optimal use of the available spectrum.
