Sony Receives Approval to Use Key Bridge ESC for Its SAS System
Friday, August 06, 2021 | Comments

The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) approved Sony to use Key Bridge’s environmental sensing capability (ESC) with its spectrum access system (SAS) to protect federal operations in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band.

In January, the WTB and OET approved four SAS administrators for full scale commercial deployment in the 3.5 GHz band. Sony, which was one of the four, did not have an ESC at the time. Under FCC rules, if a SAS operator makes substantial changes to its system, it must submit those changes for an approval.

“We find that Sony has demonstrated effective communication and interoperation with the Key Bridge ESC, and, as such, is approved to use the Key Bridge ESC to protect federal incumbent operations consistent with the commission’s rules and its SAS authorizations,” the FCC said in approving Sony’s request.
