FCC Conditionally Approves 7 Entities to Administer CBRS Spectrum Access
Thursday, December 22, 2016 | Comments

The FCC conditionally approved seven entities — Amdocs, Comsearch, CTIA, Federated Wireless, Google, Key Bridge and Sony Electronics — as Spectrum Access System (SAS) administrators in the 3.55 – 3.7 GHz band.

The SAS will coordinate three tiers of users in the 3.5 GHz band, making the band available for commercial use on a shared basis with existing federal and nonfederal incumbents.

In April, the commission adopted rules that established a new Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) in the 3.5 GHz band. The CBRS users will share use with federal and nonfederal incumbent access tier users as part of a broader three-tiered sharing framework enabled by the SAS. The SAS will serve as an automated frequency management system to assign spectrum within the band and protect the three tiers of users. The full order is here.
