SUNNYVALE, Calif. and WASHINGTON -- Today, the CBRS Alliance and the Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum), jointly commended the industry-leading businesses that introduced the first set of Citizens Broadband Radio Service Devices (CBSDs) certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Ericsson, Nokia, Sercomm, and Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, achieved certification for the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, representing momentum for a growing ecosystem of mobile operators, cable operators, managed service providers, private enterprises and more that see incredible value in utilizing 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 CBSD 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 most recent updates on commercialization status of the CBRS Band can be found at https://cbrs.wirelessinnovation.org/cbrs-status-summary. Industry momentum and traction toward the commercialization of OnGo in the 3.5 GHz band can be found at www.cbrsalliance.org on LinkedIn and @OnGoWireless on Twitter.
