FCC Certifies Key Bridge as a SAS Provider for CBRS
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 | Comments

The FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) certified Key Bridge Wireless as spectrum access system (SAS) administrator in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).

The OET, along with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) reviewed Key Bridge’s initial commercial deployment (ICD) report, and each determined that Key Bridge has met the requirements to serve as a SAS administrator. With the certification, Key Bridge can make its SAS services available for a 5-year term.

In the CBRS band, there are three tiers of users: incumbent, priority access license (PAL) holders and unlicensed users. SAS administrators operate systems that prevent interference between the different tiers of users.

“It is exciting to see the rapid rise of the FCC’s Citizens Broadband Radio Service," said Acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel. “We are making history with this innovative band. The growing CBRS ecosystem is now supported by six competitive spectrum access database administrators. This is exciting for consumers, providers and the future of spectrum policy.”
