OnGo unlocks valuable wireless spectrum in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band for fixed and mobile users using a three-tiered, shared spectrum approach. This innovative system allows more efficient use of spectrum resources and gives many wireless players the opportunity to expand their networks – or deploy new ones.
Fixed wireless services, powered by OnGo, have many different market applications – urban, suburban, and rural included. Indeed, many carriers, large and small, are welcoming the OnGo opportunity for fixed wireless. OnGo is attractive for fixed use cases due to its flexibility and high-bandwidth capabilities. For example, high-capacity fixed links connecting buildings or mobile devices allow for various IoT applications, such as video surveillance, monitoring, or remote-control applications. The network can also be used in industrial shipping yards, school campuses, or even hospitals.
At the OnGo Commercial Service Launch event on Sept. 18, 2019, AT&T Vice President of Federal Regulatory, Hank Hultquist, provided an overview of AT&T’s plans to use OnGo for its next-generation fixed wireless service. Hultquist explains how AT&T will bring improved fixed wireless connectivity to 170 sites in Ohio and Tennessee over the next few months. He also shared that AT&T expects to increase the total number of deployments to 1,100 towers, covering about 82,000 living units in 11 states, over the next few years.
