Wireless Innovation Forum 6 GHz Committee Releases Missing Data Handling Recommendations For Automated Frequency Systems

Serves as Companion Document to Report Published Earlier This Year

WASHINGTON, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) today announced availability of a recommendation by its 6 GHz Committee addressing the handling of missing data for incumbent systems in 6 GHz Automated Frequency Coordination (AFC) Systems. This document, WINNF-RC-1010, is a companion document to WINNF-TR-1008, which is a summary of how to access and use the data in the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS).

Document provides recommendations on blank, uncollected, erroneous, or conflicting incumbent ULS data

Approved and released by the WInnForum membership, WINNF-RC-1010 provides recommendations to licensees and the FCC on blank, uncollected, erroneous, or conflicting incumbent ULS data. The discussion in this document is within the context of the U.S. 6 GHz U-NII rules governing AFC Systems and unlicensed devices (47 C.F.R. Part 15 E), and the FCC Report and Order (18-295) in which the rules were adopted. It also provides recommendations to incumbents and the FCC on specific actions that could be taken.

The WInnForum 6 GHz Committee is also developing requirements for the 6 GHz AFC System that will address how to handle blank, uncollected, erroneous or conflicting data in the Technical Specification "Operational and Functional Requirements for the U.S. 6 GHz Band" (WINNF-TS-1014).
