The OnGo Alliance, an industry organization focused on driving the development, commercialization, and adoption of OnGo™ shared spectrum solutions, recently announced a number of new Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) deployments, including the New York Public Library, MicroSeismic, and the Wells Fargo Center, new milestones for the CBRS ecosystem, and a new Alliance membership tier for implementors.
The private LTE and 5G Network market will reach $13.6 billion by 2030, according to research firm Research and Markets. This growth helped inspire the addition of the Alliance’s new Implementor tier which opens up Alliance resources to end users such as airports, universities, stadiums, factories and more. Adding this tier will allow existing and new members to benefit from information sharing regarding successes, perspective into decision-making processes, technology innovations, and government and industry collaboration – all in an effort to further awareness and adoption of CBRS and its benefits.
Additional recent CBRS deployment include Nokia’s Private LTE Network for the Fresno Unified School District; Chicago’s O’Hare Airport (Boingo Wireless); Petco Park (Boingo), Wells Fargo (Comcast Business); the U.S. Marine Corp warehouse facility (JMA Wireless); Celona’s CBRS private network at a U.S. steel manufacturing factory; Logan Aluminum (Motorola) and the Ericsson USA 5G smart factory.
Currently supporting the CBRS ecosystem are 240K CBSDs, more than 490 different types of client devices (EUDs), and more than 4,300 certified installers, illustrating impressive momentum in only two years since becoming commercially deployed.
“The innovative implementations of OnGo solutions in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band across enterprises, factories, educational institutions, arenas and smart cities have been succeeding at quite a clip and we’re very encouraged to see such progress,” said Alan Ewing, executive director of the OnGo Alliance. “These key milestones we’re announcing today highlight the substantial momentum of CBRS-powered private, fixed wireless, and soon neutral host networks throughout the U.S. and it’s no wonder – providing reliable bandwidth at lower costs and with less time to deploy makes sense for everyone.”
Approximately 200 companies comprise the OnGo Alliance, including new members Alef Edge, Great Software Laboratory Pvt. Ltd, HUBER+SUHNER, and Pollen Mobile.
