Lawrence Behr Associates (LBA) announced that both field and office personnel have obtained the Certified Professional Installer (CPI) credentials required to set up and certify CBRS installations as mandated under the rules in FCC Part 96.
The FCC is now allowing wireless service providers and other commercial entities to use the CBRS 3550-3700 MHz (3.5 GHz) band license-free, or lightly licensed. However, certain measurement and validation procedures are required to enable interference management by the Spectrum Access System providers, as mandated by the Commission.
“LBA has its national technical field team certified to provide SAS compliance, so we’re well-positioned to help our customers achieve successful CBRS deployments across the country,” said LBA Technical Services Manager David Sourdis. “We have also certified the team in 5G deployment practices as well,” he added.
Available services from LBA for CBRS deployments include system audits, turn-up, SAS certification, compliance coordination and other non-SAS compliance requirements such as NIER Studies, RF Interference, AM Compliance and putting CBRS on AM radio towers with innovative AM co-location solutions.
“LBA has been a pioneer in the cellular business since 1981, so having a team certified for CBRS CPI is part of our on-going priority to serve our customers’ at the highest level in the ever changing wireless world,” said LBA VP of Business Development Mike Britner. “In this case we are the comprehensive technical resource for CBRS deployments,” added Britner.
