Innovation & Open Source

Collaborating to build and improve compelling technologies and best practices for spectrum management, monitoring and de-confliction.

We develop and publish open source software.

Open source plays an important role in software innovation. It enables new methods, techniques and improvements to iteratively build on their predecessors. Open source software also benefits from community supported bug tracking and algorithm development, where software source code benefits from multiple sources of quality assurance and testing.

Open standards are also critical for technology innovation. They foster and support the establishment of solid foundations upon which new systems, software and innovations can be safely constructed. Open standards efficiently share and propagate best practices and reduce wasted effort "re-inventing the same wheel".

We and our partners are significant contributors of open source technologies, and Key Bridge is proud to have proposed, published and contributed more technology, specification and implementation know-how into the public domain than all other White Space administrators combined.

We support and enable third party innovation and development with free access to our web services and APIs for non-commercial and educational use. Key Bridge publishes and maintains the open Wireless Service Information Format (WSIF) family of specifications and provides a freely available open-source reference implementation.
