Ruckus Networks Achieves FCC CBRS Certification

By Ken Briodagh September 11, 2018

Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, has announced it is the first technology provider to achieve FCC certification for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). This certification covers Ruckus’ entire portfolio of 3.5 GHz access points under its OpenG brand. This is another huge step towards commercial deployments on the CBRS band for enterprise-driven private LTE networks and service provider network augmentation.

Applications utilizing CBRS technologies include wide-area surveillance cameras, mobile point-of-sale, remote data transfer to critical communications and private LTE networks. CBRS improves the wireless coverage and capacity on a large scale, making it ideal for in-building, public space and industrial IoT wireless requirements in a world where spectrum is limited but data demand is not.

“With over 20 CBRS technology trials and as the first company with FCC-certified CBRS APs, Ruckus is clearly a leader in this space,” said Chris DePuy, Technology Analyst, 650 Group. “This technology will open up new use cases for connectivity, automation, and indoor and outdoor cellular coverage using the CBRS spectrum for the enterprise and service providers. Congratulations to the team!”

CBRS is 150MHz of the 3.5GHz band (3550MHz to 3700MHz) made available by the FCC for commercial use through an innovative spectrum-sharing framework. This will make spectrum available for the delivery of LTE services without requiring a license. Customers want to take advantage of this opportunity to drive experiences in in-building cellular, security, safety, automation and analytics.

“This major milestone is one of the final stages before CBRS commercial deployments are made possible,” said Ian Whiting, President, Ruckus Networks. “As a leading network provider, we are enabling organizations to deploy and manage a private LTE network, as easily as deploying a Wi-Fi network. Our OpenG LTE portfolio enables customers across a variety of different verticals to take advantage of this spectrum.”

The Ruckus OpenG LTE portfolio enables enterprises and service providers to deploy specific LTE networks to ensure a high quality-of-service for business-critical applications and use cases.
