Portions of the radio spectrum that are allocated to licensees are
available for non-interfering use.  This available spectrum is called
"white space".  Allowing secondary users access to available spectrum
"unlocks" existing spectrum to maximize its utilization and to
provide opportunities for innovation, resulting in greater overall
spectrum utilization.

One approach to managing spectrum sharing uses databases to report
spectrum availability to devices.  To achieve interoperability among
multiple devices and databases, a standardized protocol must be
defined and implemented.  This document defines such a protocol, the
"Protocol to Access White-Space (PAWS) Databases".

This document is a product of the Protocol to Access WS database Working
Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
