Red Technologies has been conditionally approved by the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and Office of Engineering & Technology (OET) of the FCC as Spectrum Access System (SAS) administrator in the 3550-3700 MHz band (3.5 GHz band) in the United States.
This conditional approval gives Red the opportunity to be certified as SAS administrator in the coming months. The company’s SAS is already deployed in the United States by Amdocs.
Michael Abitbol, chief operating officer of Red, said: “While we will continue building on our strong partnership with Amdocs, this conditional approval will lead to the independent certification of our cloud-based SAS expected in the last quarter of this year. We are very excited to soon be able to bring disruptive SAS business models to the market place.”
Considering the proven success of CBRS, Red Technologies has ambitions to gain market share rapidly.
Pierre-Jean Muller, chief executive officer of Red, said: “This announcement is another significant strategic step in the construction of our unique dynamic spectrum sharing solutions portfolio. With the current development of our 6 GHz automatic frequency controller (AFC), Red Technologies will be the only company in its field offering customers a mixed combination of TVWS, CBRS, and 6 GHz to address all use cases, from rural broadband to industry 4.0.”
