DEKRA becomes CBRS Alliance Authorized Test Lab for LTE CBRS technology

| 01 August, 2018 |

DEKRA’s Sterling, Virginia (US) lab is now recognized by CBRS Alliance as an independent authorized test laboratory. With this recognition and its current test capabilities, DEKRA is expanding its certification scope into an emerging LTE & CBRS combined technology which is gaining popularity in the USA wireless industry.

In addition to the recent recognition of CBRS Alliance, DEKRA is recognized by A2LA to perform compliance testing for FCC 47 CFR Part 96. This regulatory compliance testing in concert with the CBRS Alliance OnGo Certification allows DEKRA to offer a complete regulatory compliance and certification package for LTE CBRS technology, adding to an already complete portfolio of LTE testing capabilities.

Fernando Hardasmal, Global Market and Sales Director at DEKRA: “CBRS technology has been adopted by the wireless industry and mobile network operators across the USA. As DEKRA, we are contributing to this innovative network deployment model by delivering test solutions developed to provide reliable mobile data for a better user experience.”

Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is an unlicensed broadcast band of the 3.5GHz band (ranging from 3550 MHz to 3700 MHz) historically used by the US government for radar systems. It was opened up in 2017 by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and lowers the barrier to entry for non-traditional wireless carriers. In 2018 the CBRS Alliance adopted the OnGo brand to represent CBRS LTE products, services, and certification.

All major US mobile network operators, cable giants as well as tech companies are using OnGo for their LTE services. It is also expected that mobile network operators using this band will deploy 5G networks more quickly, because of OnGo technology and the proposed availability of new spectrum licenses.
