OnGo Certification Program
With support from CBRS Alliance member companies, the CTIA, and global test labs, the CBRS Alliance has developed the OnGo Certification Program to ensure seamless integration and deployment of OnGo wireless solutions, and to support widespread market adoption of OnGo technologies.
By establishing a set of a standards for performance and interoperability, we’re defining the level of quality we expect from those who plan to sell and deploy OnGo equipment.
Why Get Certified?
OnGo Certified is a recognized seal of approval for OnGo products, indicating that they have met a high set of industry standards for interoperability and security.
Equipment manufacturers should pursue certification to ensure interoperability in OnGo wireless networks, and to foster a sense of trust with prospective end users and IT decision makers.
Benefits of Certification
OnGo Certified products have undergone rigorous testing by one of our independent Authorized Test Laboratories. When a product successfully passes testing, the manufacturer or vendor is granted the right to use the OnGo Certified logo. Certification means that a product has been tested in numerous configurations with a diverse sampling of products to validate interoperability with other OnGo Certified equipment operating in the 3.5 GHz frequency band.
OnGo Certification opens a new ecosystem in support of the emerging wireless market made possible by sharing spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band. When a product passes OnGo Certification, it also receives FCC Certification, providing an FCC ID that will allow it to operate across the US.
Certification helps ensure interoperability among equipment vendors, and allows manufacturers to test for quality before introducing new products into the market, reducing overall support costs. For operators, certification brings interoperability to large-scale deployments, even in multi-vendor deployments, helping to contain costs. For Enterprises deploying Private LTE or Industrial IoT, the OnGo Certified brand indicates they are purchasing a product that will work as advertised when installed.
How Do I Certify My Product(s)?
The OnGo Certification process is quite simple. In most cases you’ll be working with a trusted test lab that you already use for other products in your portfolio.
A company must be a member of the CBRS Alliance to have its products tested for certification and use the OnGo Certified logo and associated trademarks.
