TV White Spaces constitutes the major portion of the VHF and UHF TV band which is geographically unused after digital switchover. The most important regulatory trend in the context of Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) is the Cognitive access of TV white Spaces. Through spectrum measurement campaign we have estimated the spectrum utilization of TV band in Pune, India. We have designed the measurement set up and methodology for the measurement campaign. Our spectrum occupancy analysis provides the realistic view on the spectrum opportunities in India for (i) spectrum refarming of TV band; (ii) Cognitive Radio operation in TV band. Also we have stressed on the need of quantitative analysis of TVWSs availability and compatibility studies for protection of incumbent services for CR access of TVWSs in India. Also this paper reviews the state-of-the-art in standardization of cognitive access to TVWS.
