RF Connect Joins CBRS Alliance to Progress Cellular-Based Connectivity Solutions for the Built World

“Our rationale for joining the CBRS Alliance is informed by the proverb, ‘If you want to go quickly, go alone; if you want to go far, go together,’” said Jeff Hipchen, Executive Vice President at RF Connect. “We believe the success of our CBRS-enabled private network offerings will be influenced by the overall market’s ability to engage buyers and communicate compelling use cases, benefits and monetization.”

Often referred to as the “innovation band” because it is the first attempt to share spectrum among incumbent federal and non-federal users as well as general authorized commercial users, CBRS offers a broad range of use cases to communication ecosystem stakeholders. One of the most compelling is in-building private networks which leverage cellular LTE benefits of performance, reliability and security to provide business- and mission-critical connectivity for building owners and enterprise tenants.

“Wireless connectivity is the foundation to smart building outcomes that include occupant experience and operational and resource efficiencies,” said Jeff Clark, Chief Innovation Officer at RF Connect. “Membership in the CBRS Alliance is a strategic imperative for ensuring the widescale adoption of still-nascent Private LTE solutions within the built world.”

“OnGo™ LTE and future 5G private networks unlock highly-compelling business and technology connectivity benefits for IP-based applications and cellular connectivity for both indoor and outdoor use cases,” said Alan Ewing, Executive Director at the CBRS Alliance. “We look forward to RF Connect’s industry insights and contributions to the organization.”

Private LTE for Wi-Fi data relief and in-building cellular roaming expands the company’s solutions portfolio which also includes traditional distributed antenna system (DAS) networks to more effectively serve the mid-sized enterprise or “middleprise” market.

CBRS Alliance president Dave Wright will join RF Connect and other subject matter experts to discuss Private LTE and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications and use cases during a livestream presentation on September 11th at 8:30am ET. Learn more here.
