Specifications - documents designed to provide a WInnForum supported definition of a specific architectural element or interface within a software defined radio, cognitive radio or dynamic spectrum access system.

Please note: as of 29 June 2017 the Wireless Innovation Forum changed their document numbering policy per a directive from its Board of Directors. The new numbering system will significantly simplify the release process. The Forum will keep all the existing, published documents online so that those that are being reference can continue to be. Staff will update the links, etc. in old documents as they are updated to reflect references to the the new document number. If you have any questions or issues, please email Stephanie Hamill.

Public comment on these specifications can be provided by submitting change requests through the Forum's public issues management portal.
