4 Companies Receive FCC Certification for CBRS Devices
Tuesday, October 09, 2018 | Comments

The CBRS Alliance and Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) commended the businesses that introduced the first set of Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) devices certified by the FCC. Ericsson, Nokia, Sercomm and Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, achieved certification for the CBRS 3.5 GHz band, which will use shared spectrum for wireless connectivity.

To receive FCC certification, devices were tested against 47 CFR Part 96. Part of this testing requires demonstrating that a CBRS device correctly communicates with a Spectrum Access System (SAS). The devices certified met this requirement by showing conformance with the WInnForum SAS to CBSD Interface Specification (WINNF-TS-0016) through successful testing against the WInnForum CBSD Test Specification (WINNF-TS-0122) at a WInnForum CBRS approved test lab.

In addition to FCC certification, these devices are also the first to receive OnGo Certification from the CBRS Alliance.

“The Wireless Innovation Forum is excited to congratulate these members on receiving their FCC equipment authorizations,” said Lee Pucker, CEO of the Wireless Innovation Forum. “This major milestone in the commercialization of the CBRS band represents the first of what we believe will be many more certifications announced over the next few months as the industry moves towards initial commercial deployment.”

“We see immense value in leveraging OnGo technology for private LTE (Long Term Evolution) and neutral host environments and are seeing growing interest across industry sectors, including public venues, smart cities, enterprises, healthcare and more,” said Chris Stark, head of business development, North America, Nokia and chairman, CBRS Alliance.
