Sunnyvale, Calif. – October 16, 2019 The CBRS Alliance, an industry organization focused on driving the development, commercialization, and adoption of OnGo™ shared spectrum solutions, announced that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will keynote its OnGo Workshop at Mobile World Congress Los Angeles (MWC LA). CBRS Alliance will also sponsor the OnGo Pavilion featuring more than 30 member companies and a device display of OnGo solutions from CBRS Alliance members, highlighting the breadth and depth of the OnGo ecosystem.

MWC LA comes on the heels of the CBRS Alliance’s successful launch event in Washington D.C. and the approaching conclusion of the initial commercial deployment (ICD) phase, which started with the FCC’s public notice in September. The CBRS Alliance’s presence at MWC LA will highlight the market impact of OnGo, including deployments, devices, solutions and insights, and celebrate a key milestone for the Alliance – reaching 150 members since its formation in 2016.

On October 23, 2019, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will kick off the OnGo Workshop, followed by presentations from industry experts on the impact of OnGo and why this global-first shared spectrum solution, valued at $15.6 billion, is known as the “Innovation Band.” A  number of executives from various industries will discuss their OnGo deployments and opportunities across the rural broadband, Industrial IoT, retail, utility and entertainment markets.
