FCC Certifies CommScope SAS for Full Commercial Deployment
CommScope’s wide CBRS portfolio is open for business, enabling fixed wireless access, small cell and in-building wireless, neutral host networks, and private LTE
With the FCC Public Notice DA-20-110A1, organizations from mobile network operators and neutral host network operators to private enterprises, WISPS, and municipalities will be able to put CBRS to use for a wide range of applications, including mobile, fixed wireless access, IoT, small cell deployments and in-building cellular and private LTE networks. This in turn will spawn new innovations in wireless communications and will enable unique new use cases that only a dedicated, secure, high-quality network can reliably support.
“It is exciting to see the full capability of CBRS now available,” said

CommScope’s portfolio enables customers to easily deploy CBRS networks for even the most challenging and critical use cases. CommScope’s CBRS solutions include:
- Spectrum Access System (SAS): CommScope’s SAS allows for the sharing and management of available CBRS frequencies by minimizing interference with other CBRS and incumbent users.
- Access Points (CBRS Devices or CBSDs): CommScope’s Ruckus access points (LTE eNodeBs or small cells) utilize CBRS spectrum to provide cellular-like reliability, mobility, security and quality of service, but with the simplicity of Wi-Fi.
Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC): CommScope’s Environmental Sensing Capability is a network of sensors used to detect federal frequency use in the 3550–3650 MHz band where
U.S. Navyradar systems may operate, primarily along the U.S. coasts. The ESC informs the SAS of radar operation and the SAS reacts to ensure there is no interference between CBRS and radar operations.
Certificated Professional Installer (CPI):
CommScopeis a CPI Training Program Administrator (TPA) for CBRS. This accreditation allows CommScopeto offer training to installation professionals who want to attain CBRS CPI certification.
WInnForum Approved CBRS Root of
Trust Certificate Authority: CommScopeprovides RSA-based and elliptic curve-based CA and device certificates anchored by a CBRS Root CA through its Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Center.
- Fixed Wireless Broadband End User Devices (EUDs): The ARRIS NVG558 series Fixed Wireless Broadband Gateways deliver high speed broadband services over wireless access, with variants that support 4G LTE / LTE-A / LTE-A Pro, 3.5GHz CBRS, and upcoming support for 5G NR. These self-installable multiservice gateways support ARRIS HomeAssure for optimal, in-home Wi-Fi performance as well as managed voice, video, data and IoT services.
PartnerPRO Network: CommScope’s growing partner network includes over 100 authorized
CBRS Technology Specialists.
