WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) today announced membership approval of its 2021 Operations plan. The WInnForum Board of Directors has established several high-level objectives for the Forum for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 to execute on the Forum's Strategic Plan.
Objectives are supported through projects undertaken by the Advanced Technology Committee (ATC), 6 GHz Committee (6GHz), Spectrum Sharing Committee (SSC) and the Software Defined Systems Committee (SDS). Multiple Reports, Recommendations and Specifications for use by the advanced wireless community will be produced as a result (http://www.wirelessinnovation.org/reports-recommendations-and-specifications).
6GHz objectives include establishing a liaison agreement with the Wi-Fi Alliance and other stakeholder groups, creating technical documents consistent with the FCC Report and Order and collaborating on the development of requirements and procedures regarding interference reporting and remediation, and identifying Automatic Frequency Coordination (AFC) requirements for incumbent protection.
In addition to initiating a new project in the coming year, the ATC will prioritize the creation of a watch list that outlines strategic projects in support of the Forum's Advocacy Agenda, Top 10 Most Wanted Wireless Innovations and the Forum's Platform Strategy.
The SDS will deliver output on multiple projects, including a Harmonized Timing Service API, Transceiver Facility API PSMs, Tactical Communications Standards, and more.
SSC working group goals include developing CBRS Release 2 standards and requirements allowing the CBRS community to advance the capabilities and features of SAS, CBSDs, and related ecosystem components, maintaining Release 1 specifications in alignment with requirements and test specifications, and completing support certification.
