Wednesday, April 10, 2019 | Comments

The CBRS Alliance announced that the Network and Coexistence Release 2 specifications are finalized and published. The alliance, which oversees the OnGo Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G solutions for the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, made the specifications publicly available for download.

“As the initial commercial deployment phase quickly approaches, a solid framework is in place to support efficient connection and traffic management on the band,” said Alan Ewing, executive director of the CBRS Alliance. “The innovative, industry-leading work represented in Release 2 is setting the foundation for a new standard of wireless connectivity.”

The technical specifications for coexistence build on baseline specifications released in 2018. They are designed to ensure compatibility across CBRS devices. The specifications in Release 2 address enhanced network functionality in support of fixed access, private, shared and mobile broadband networks. New features include shared network identifiers, enhanced security features such as authentication and support for mobility capabilities such as roaming into private and neutral host networks.

In addition, enhanced coexistence functionality has been added to facilitate mitigation of interference among general access (GAA) users, including alignment of signal configurations, measurement frameworks to quantify GAA interference, as well as messaging protocol enhancements to support coordination of GAA users.
