The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) and the CBRS Alliance are at the forefront of creating the commercial standards, protocols and certification process for the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) in the 3550-3700 MHz band. 

WISPA has a front seat and is actively engaged in the WInnForum process, working directly with the key stakeholders in the band including WISPs, carriers, SASs, vendors/suppliers, the regulators including the FCC, incumbent holders and previously-registered 3.65 GHz users.  
For the first time, all are working together to create a new approach to spectrum sharing.  Coming at the end of this year, CBRS will be available with as much as 150 MHz of accessible new spectrum.
