As the FCC readies to tackle the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band at its open meeting later this month, the CBRS Alliance and Wireless Innovation (WInnForum) Forum on Tuesday touted the first generation of CBRS devices certified by the agency.
Vendors that received CBRS equipment certification include Ericsson, Nokia, Sercomm, and Arris’ Ruckus Networks.
“The Wireless Innovation Forum is excited to congratulate these members on receiving their FCC equipment authorizations,” said Lee Pucker, CEO of the Wireless Innovation Forum, in a statement. “This major milestone in the commercialization of the CBRS band represents the first of what we believe will be many more certifications announced over the next few months as the industry moves towards Initial Commercial Deployment.”
