Wireless Innovation Forum Issues New CBRS Standard

The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) has announced the approval of a new Release 2 specification defining enhancements to the baseline CBRS Operational and Functional Requirements, the company said.

It defines optional features and functionality that can be incorporated at any time, with special focus on supporting specific vertical markets and their deployments. The specification was prepared by the WInnForum´s Spectrum Sharing Committee CBRS Functional and Operational Requirements Working Group, chaired by Andrew Clegg of Google.

To address backward compatibility with the WInnForum Release 1 Baseline Standards, the only mandatory feature in Release 2 for a SAS or CBSD is to support the feature capability exchange between SASs and CBSDs.

Established in 1996, The Wireless Innovation Forum (SDR Forum Version 2.0) is a non-profit mutual benefit corporation dedicated to advocating for spectrum innovation, and advancing radio technologies that support essential or critical communications worldwide.
