WInnForum 6 GHz Committee Announces Initiatives for the Year
Wednesday, May 05, 2021 | Comments

The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) announced the goals for next fiscal year for its 6 GHz Committee and a new web site that will make the resulting reports and specifications easily available.

Fiscal-year 2022 goals for the group, included in the WInnForum's Operations Plan to be released publicly in May and created in collaboration with the 6 GHz Multi-Stakeholder Group and other standards development organizations, are:
• Defining interaction with FCC databases, application of interference protection criteria, propagation modeling, and spectrum availability determination; • Developing a security threat assessment;
• Creating an automatic frequency coordination (AFC) functional specification; and
• Creating a test and certification framework.

The approach to the committee's work will emphasize the technical aspects of sharing while simplifying interfaces and requirements. This is done to advance innovative and competitive sharing approaches and to increase deployment speed of AFC systems.

To date, the committee has produced four documents, including its newest offering: TR-1008: 6 GHz Incumbent Data Technical Report, which explores the Universal Licensing System (ULS) in depth. Find a video blog on the report here.

Currently in ballot is the foundational document for the band detailing the operational and functional requirements under the control of an AFC system. That will be publicly available by quarter's end.

The committee is open to representatives of all member organizations, and trial memberships are available. Non-member observers and subject matter experts may also be invited to participate.
