Spectrum crowding, spectrum management, quality of service, and user support are the topics of vigorous research in the cognitive and dynamic spectrum access network communities. As research matures, standardization provides a bridge between research results, implementation, and widespread deployment of such networks. This article reports recent developments within the IEEE Standardization Coordinating Committee 41, "Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks." It outlines possible future standardization topics for IEEE SCC41, in the framework of other related standardization activities, and discusses open research issues that present future challenges for the standardization community.
