DySPAN Standards Committee

IEEE Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks Standards Committee

Purpose: The Sponsor develops standards related to spectrum sharing and dynamic spectrum access networks or cognitive technologies applied to wireless radios, networks, and spectrum dependent systems. The focus is on improved use of spectrum. Topics in scope include (but are not limited to) access techniques, techniques to control interference, networking, network services, and network management particularly as they relate to wireless networks.

Call for Proposals for New Standards

The IEEE Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks Standards Committee (DySPAN-SC) is seeking proposals for standards projects in the areas of dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio, interference management, coordination of wireless systems, advanced spectrum management, and policy languages for next generation radio systems. DySPAN-SC is particularly interested in ideas that could be implemented in commercial products in the near to medium term.

Scope of the Standards Committee

The scope of the DySPAN-SC includes the following:

  • Dynamic spectrum access radio systems and networks with the focus on improved use of spectrum,
  • New techniques and methods of dynamic spectrum access including the management of radio transmission interference, and
  • Coordination of wireless technologies including network management and information sharing amongst networks deploying different wireless technologies.
