Wireless Innovation Forum Announces New SCA 4.1 Projects

Projects represent an outstanding opportunity for the international SCA community of interest to boost the applicability of SCA on AEPs and IDL Profiles

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 7, 2014 / -- The Wireless Innovation Forum (, a non-profit international industry association dedicated to driving the future of radio communications and systems worldwide, today announced the creation of two new projects: AEPs Improvements for SCA 4.1 and IDL Profiles Improvements for SCA 4.1. The projects, both led by Eric Nicollet of Thales (HO:EN Paris), are being completed by the WInnForum’s Coordinating Committee on International SCA Standards (CC SCA).

“Those two projects represent an outstanding opportunity for the international SCA community of interest to boost the applicability of SCA on two essential aspects: AEPs, that defines the SDR application / (RT)OS boundary, and IDL Profiles, that characterize possibilities for definition of application-dependent software interfaces,” says Nicollet. “Thanks to the international positioning of CC SCA and its unique working relationship with the governmental stakeholders who drive applicability of SDR standards, these projects offer the opportunity to deliver for SCA 4.1 unified specifications broadly supported at international level.”

Both topics were identified at the joint Forum-JTNCSCA 4.1 Workshop of November 2013 ( as priority for JTNC SCA 4.1 preparation. The projects will address as a starting baseline the resolution of issues identified and discussed during the workshop, privileging consensus-based resolution approach. The outcome of AEPs Improvements will namely present an improved content for SCA 4.1 usage, enabling broader support and minimizing divergences among comparable international SCA-based standards. The outcome of IDL Profiles Improvements will namely position IDL Profiles as self-standing building blocks within the SCA 4.1 specification, along with improved rationale and technical content.

Both projects will hold their inaugural face-to-face meetings during the coming CC SCA Workgroup Meetings held on 23-24 January in conjunction with the Forum’s Waveform Portability Workshop ( held on 22 January in Paris, France.

The Forum encourages participation from organizations wanting to be involved in these structuring projects. Please contact Forum CEO Lee Pucker at if you are interested.

Wireless Innovation Forum member representatives have initiated and led multiple work efforts that promote their organization’s specific objectives through the creation of reports, recommendations and specifications that are widely used by the advanced wireless community. The importance of these "work products" is reflected in the fact that over 12,000 individual documents were downloaded from the document library in 2012 alone.

Established in 1996, The Wireless Innovation Forum (SDR Forum Version 2.0) is a non-profit mutual benefit corporation dedicated to driving technology innovation in commercial, civil, and defense communications worldwide. Members bring a broad base of experience in Software Defined Radio (SDR), Cognitive Radio(CR) and Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) technologies in diverse markets and at all levels of the wireless value chain to address emerging wireless communications requirements.
