CommScope has received official notification from the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) that its spectrum access system (SAS) to support 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is now approved for full commercial deployment. With this announcement, CommScope's SAS will become a foundation to open up 150 MHz of CBRS spectrum that until now had very limited use.
CLICK TO TWEET: FCC Certifies CommScope's SAS for Full Commercial Deployment.
With the FCC Public Notice DA-20-110A1, organizations from mobile network operators and neutral host network operators to private enterprises, WISPS, and municipalities will be able to put CBRS to use for a wide range of applications, including mobile, fixed wireless access, IoT, small cell deployments and in-building cellular and private LTE networks. This in turn will spawn new innovations in wireless communications and will enable unique new use cases that only a dedicated, secure, high-quality network can reliably support.
'It is exciting to see the full capability of CBRS now available,' said Monica Paolini, Principal, Senza Fili. 'Many trials are now live and show how the technology can be commercially deployed in multiple verticals and multiple use cases. CommScope has been and continue to be a leading player in the CBRS ecosystem, providing a portfolio of CBRS, licensed and unlicensed wireless products and SAS services.'
'Ruckus is a founding member of the CBRS Alliance and CommScope has been in the spectrum management business for more than 40 years. This is truly a pivotal milestone for both CBRS and CommScope,' said Mike Guerin, vice president of Integrated Solutions at CommScope. 'After years of collaboration with industry and government on CBRS, CommScope is proud that our SAS has received FCC certification for full commercial deployment. We are the only company with a complete portfolio of CBRS solutions and our certified partners are ready to work with customers to address use cases and business opportunities.'
