CellAntenna announced that its DAS installation teams are certified for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)/OnGo deployments. With multiple teams deployed on both coasts as well as in the central United States, the company is positioned to support the buildout of OnGo Certified CBRS networks across the country, the company announced the OnGo Initial Commercial Deployment (ICD) Launch event last week.
“The success of CBRS will be driven by the widespread installation of the OnGo Certified technology. The unique operations of CBRS licensing and dynamic sharing of spectrum demand a new level of compliance for installation as well as operations,” said Howard Melamed, president of CellAntenna, “With our team CPI Certified, CellAntenna is ready to support CBRS/OnGo deployments.”
CBRS fits with commercial networks to leverage the mid-band spectrum for additional network capacity for 4G and future 5G services. The wireless industry anticipates large scale buildouts of the technology starting in the fourth quarter of 2019 continuing through the next several years.
CBRS is the latest technology addition to the CellAntenna end-to-end DAS service portfolio. The company leverages over eighteen years of DAS experience spanning from traditional active and passive systems through to the latest fiber driven small cell architectures, including Ericsson’s Radio DOT and SpiderCloud’s Service and Radio nodes. With its CBRS-CPI certification, CellAntenna is now able to install OnGo certified equipment.
