ATIS, CBRS Alliance Work Together on CBRS Solutions

By Joan Engebretson


The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions and the CBRS Alliance said they will work together to resolve technical issues involving the citizens broadband radio service (CBRS) spectrum band. Among other things the ATIS, CBRS Alliance agreement aims to address challenges that arise when the spectrum is used on both a licensed and unlicensed basis to support mobile service.

The CBRS band includes spectrum between 3550-3700 MHz, a portion of which will be auctioned and a portion of which will be available for unlicensed use on a shared basis with incumbent military users. A spectrum access system will prevent unlicensed users from using the spectrum in areas where it is already in use.

Among other things, the CBRS Alliance is the group that created the OnGo brand for shared spectrum technology. Initially, the brant will apply to the CBRS band but longer term could be used for other spectrum bands used by communications service providers on a shared basis.

About CBRS Alliance

The CBRS Alliance believes that LTE-based solutions in the CBRS band, utilizing shared spectrum, can enable both in-building and outdoor coverage and capacity expansion at massive scale. In order to maximize CBRS’ full potential, the CBRS Alliance aims to enable a robust ecosystem towards making LTE-based CBRS solutions available. The mission of the CBRS Alliance is to evangelize LTE-based CBRS technology, use cases and business opportunities while simultaneously driving technology developments necessary to fulfill the mission, including multi-operator LTE capabilities. The Alliance will also establish an effective product certification program for LTE equipment in the US 3.5 GHz band ensuring multi-vendor interoperability.
