Mobile World Congress 2017 - French Pavilion 5B41-15

Spectrum sharing enabler, RED Technologies will demonstrate the effectiveness of its Spectrum Access System (SAS) platform in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band at Mobile World Congress 2017, 22 February-2 March 2017 (French Pavilion 5B41-15). This demonstration represents another important step towards the wide-scale adoption of new spectrum sharing approaches.

SAS is one of two[1] ground breaking new ways of securely sharing spectrum. It employs the FCC’s three-tiered approach for sharing licensed spectrum in the US and is designed for use by carriers, neutral hosts, and ISPs seeking to share the spectrum of the navy or other incumbents.

The use cases to be shown at Mobile World Congress cover 2nd Priority Access Licenses (PALs) and 3rd General Authorized Access (GAA) tier spectrum evacuation upon primary user detection with automatic radio network reconfiguration. RED Technologies has already demonstrated a live test-bed including a 3.5 GHz RAN and managed by the company’s latest SON and SAS servers. For this first in Europe, a French operator authorized the use of the 3.5 GHz spectrum.

The evolution of RED Technologies SAS platform will lead to live pilots with partners in the US and Europe in 2017 and positions the company as first worldwide to offer dynamic spectrum sharing solutions and services addressing both LSA and SAS frameworks. In this perspective, RED Technologies will open offices in Washington this first quarter.

Spectrum sharing is a springboard for 5G and, as such, is a core focus globally. The company’s solutions are an enabler of game changing innovative services and business models.
