IEEE 1900.1

IEEE 1900.1 Working Group on “Definitions and Concepts for Dynamic Spectrum Access: Terminology Relating to Emerging Wireless Networks, System Functionality, and Spectrum Management”

IEEE 1900.1 aims to standardize terms and definitions in the field of dynamic spectrum access and related technologies. It is hoped that through this effort a common understanding on such technologies will be achieved among interested stakeholders, therefore the prospects of these technologies will be further enhanced.

The most recent version of the IEEE 1900.1 standard was published on April 23rd, 2019. It can be obtained here: https://www.techstreet.com/ieee/standards/ieee-1900-1-2019?product_id=2025751

General information about obtaining the current IEEE 1900.1 standard, or its previous versions, is available here: http://standards.ieee.org/findstds/standard/1900.1-2008.html.

Since March 2021, the IEEE 1900.1 Working Group has been concentrating on preparing a revision of the 1900.1 standard published in 2019. It is intended that this revision will provide an up-to-date viewpoint on the associated fast-moving technology areas. It is also intended that this revision will enhance the informative content detailing the relationship between the various concepts covered by the standard.
