Verizon, Charter to Speak at CBRS Alliance Launch Event in September
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- The CBRS Alliance, an industry organization focused on driving the development, commercialization, and adoption of OnGo™ shared spectrum solutions, announced “OnGo Commercial Service Launch: Share. Connect. Innovate.”, an exclusive, invite-only event celebrating the launch of commercial activity in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band. Taking place September 18, 2019 in Washington, D.C., the event represents years of unprecedented collaboration between the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), U.S. Congress, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, WInnForum and more than 135 members of the CBRS Alliance to democratize wireless spectrum.
Known as “The Innovation Band”, the 3.5 GHz CBRS band is valued at $15.6 billion and opens the door to a huge market opportunity for enterprises and the broader U.S. economy. FCC Commissioner Michael C. O’Rielly will be on-hand during the event to celebrate this important public-private partnership milestone. As the CBRS ecosystem nears the last mile before FCC authorization of commercial activity, attendees of this event will be among the first to hear some of the most compelling uses of OnGo in the market, including network densification, IoT, neutral host networks, private LTE networks, and by 2020, 5G.
