New Wireless Innovation Forum Specification Enables Radio Platforms to Provide Radio Applications with Knowledge of Time

Washington,, January 26, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) today announced the approval of the Time Facility specification (WINNF-TS-3004) and a report on the principles of support facilities (WINNF-TR-2007). The specification is an internationally supported application programming interface (API) that harmonizes views among users of the legacy API for synchronizing the shared tactical network center (JTNC), improves the scope and quality of previous specifications, and extends functional coverage.

This specification significantly improves the currently available time management standards within software-defined radio stations.

“This exciting specification significantly improves the currently available time management standards within software-defined radio stations,” he said. Eric Nicole of Thales, co-chair of the WInnForum Software Defined Systems Committee and head of the Time Service Facility development team. “This will bring more portability to SDR applications and more hospitality to SDR platforms. It clarifies some known ambiguities of previous standards and clarifies valuable additional technical capabilities, such as maintaining International Atomic Time and more accurately dealing with uncertainty over time. “

This edition is part of an expanding set of standards developed by WInnForum for the international improvement and harmonization of SDR standards. It will soon be completed with accompanying specifications for C ++, Software Communication Architecture (SCA) and the use of a programmable portal array (FPGA) on site, and pave the way for future efforts in other areas of SDR architecture.

“Together with the Transceiver Facility (TS-0008), the Time Service Facility complements the WInnForum SDR standards package. Developed by a dedicated team of experts from North America and Europe it strengthens WInnForum’s ability to stimulate international harmonization and modernization of openly developed and available SDR standards, ”added Nicole.

Supported by platinum sponsors NordiaSoft and Thales, WInnForum has several working groups focused on projects related to SCA, SDR and Spectrum Innovation. Visit to learn more.
