JMA Wireless has received FCC certification of its XRAN virtual baseband and Cell Hub radio product line as a multiple radio system for the new Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). Certification covers Category A and B Citizen Broadband Service Device (CBSD) equipment classes, allowing for full commercial deployment of CBRS networks. JMA’s high capacity, scalable radio systems are ideal for deployment into buildings, campuses, metro areas and entertainment venues in both enterprise private networks or for mobile operator use.
XRAN and Cell Hub formally received CBRS Alliance OnGo certification, assuring interoperability and access to a broad selection of end user devices, customer premise equipment, spectrum access systems (SAS) and public-private network services. With over 140 companies in the OnGo ecosystem, end users and system integrators can build a shared spectrum network immediately around JMA’s software based XRAN baseband and CellHub distributed radio system.
“JMA’s completion of OnGo certification goes beyond being ready for shared, controlled and secure spectrum. It brings interoperability and assurances of a growing ecosystem around them, ultimately giving choice and opportunity for innovation to customers using OnGo solutions,” said Alan Ewing, executive director of the CBRS Alliance.
Cell Hub radios go beyond a typical access point or small cell architecture, providing an unmatched level of flexibility, scale, and versatility. Cell Hubs paired with XRAN are uniquely positioned to provide key end user benefits:
*High capacity, multi-use stadiums and arenas can adapt use of the spectrum by area, event type, and for many different constituencies of the venue. Campus or metro transportation systems can utilize the maximum amount of spectrum for multiple systems from mobile user or IT infrastructure. Buildings can integrate multiple network slices to empower varied use cases, including IT operations, IoT systems, private mobile staff communications, and mobile offload.
OnGo Service to Launch Sept. 18
The CBRS Alliance will hold “OnGo Commercial Service Launch: Share. Connect. Innovate.,” on Sept. 18 in Washington, D.C., celebrating the launch of commercial activity in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band.
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 O’Rielly will attend the event. As the CBRS ecosystem nears 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.
