LAS VEGAS, NV (MWC Las Vegas, Booth W1.344) – September 28, 2022 – The OnGo Alliance, an industry organization focused on driving the development, commercialization, and adoption of OnGo™ shared spectrum solutions, today announced a flurry of new CBRS deployments – including the NY Public Library, MicroSeismic, and the Wells Fargo Center, new milestones for the CBRS ecosystem, and a new Alliance membership tier for implementors. At MWC Las Vegas 2022, thirteen Alliance members will display their innovations in the OnGo Alliance Pavilion in booth W1.344.
According to industry research firm Research and Markets, the private LTE and 5G Network market will reach $13.6 billion by 2030. This growth helped inspire the addition of the Alliance’s new Implementor tier which opens up the vast Alliance resources to end users such as airports, universities, stadiums, factories and more. By adding this tier, both existing and new members can 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.
CBRS deployments have been on the rise. Some of the most noteworthy include:
- Bridging the digital divide: NY Public Library CBRS Trial
- Bringing affordable connectivity to rural school districts: Nokia’s Private LTE Network for the Fresno Unified School District
- Seamless experiences: Petco Park/Boingo Wireless, Wells Fargo Center/Comcast Business
- Getting passengers where they need to be: Chicago O’Hare Airport/Boingo Wireless
- Hoo-Rah for a record-breaking factory: The US Marine Corp and JMA Wireless
- US steel manufacturing factory eliminates unexpected downtime and realizes ROI: Celona’s CBRS private network
- Manufacturing safety and security at new levels: Motorola Solutions drives the future of plant safety and efficiency
- Providing cellular connectivity and enhanced network capacity for Industry 4.0: Ericsson USA 5G Smart Factory
- Sizing up sinkholes: CTS’ CBRS private network for MicroSeismic’s industrial facility in Florida
Currently supporting the CBRS ecosystem are 240K CBSDs, 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.
At MWC Las Vegas, Alliance members including Alef, BliNQ, CommScope, GSLABS, Motorola Solutions, MultiTech, One-Layer, Parsec Antennas, Pente Networks, Pierson Wireless, Radisys, Ranplan, and Telit will showcase their recent innovations in the OnGo Alliance Pavilion, W1.344.
Along with the GSMA, the Alliance is sponsoring a co-located event, the Private Wireless Networks Summit, which will take place Thursday, September 29th in W2.229 of the West Hall. Featured session topics include: Private Networks: A New Era in Productivity, Mobility and Cloud Services, The Enterprise CTO’s Perspective on Private 4G/5G Wireless Networks, Best Practices to Plan and Launch Deployment, among other poignant topics. Pre-registration is required and can be completed here.
“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.”
