    Complex sentence - which verb does the time frame refer tos the CTIA will be releasin

    "The CTIA will be releasing version 3.5 of its OTA test plan requiring both A-GPS and A-GLONASS in the second half of 2015
    with the Spirent OTA test solution providing support for both."

    In the above sentence, the question is the time frame of 'the second half of 2015' refer to the releasing date, requiring date or both?

    I would say the release date.

    As soon as it's released, version 3.5 is going to require A-GPS and A-GLONASS. You'll need the additional components as soon as you get version 3.5. You won't be able to use 3.5 for a while, and get the other two later.

    So yes, the release date is the driving factor, although I guess you could consider the requiring date and the release date as equivalent.

    Some other comments are listed below.

    ==============
    Omitting 'which is' - in this case the time frame is more likely to refer to the component requiremet date instead of the releasing date.

    The CTIA will be releasing version 3.5 of its OTA test plan
    (which is) requiring both A-GPS and A-GLONASS in the second half of 2015 with the Spirent OTA test solution providing support for both.

    ==================
    Using commas for 'in the second half of 2015' - in this case the time frame is about the releasing date.

    The CTIA will be releasing version 3.5 of its OTA test plan
    requiring both A-GPS and A-GLONASS, in the second half of 2015, with the Spirent OTA test solution providing support for both.
