Nokia and Key Bridge Wireless to partner to offer enterprise CBRS


It was recently announced that Nokia has started a technical partnership with Key Bridge Wireless in order to enable communications service providers (CSPs), multiple-system operators (MSOs), and enterprises to have complete advantage of their investment in the CBRS (Citizens broadband radio service) spectrum.

Indeed, CBRS is planning to offer CSPs, MSOs, and enterprises the deployment of private wireless networks and build the platform for new use cases. Nokia declared that the partnership would enable businesses across the US to build private networks through AT&T using CBRS spectrum and its infrastructure. Besides, AT&T is set to offer Nokia Digital Automation Cloud and Modular Private Wireless platforms.

Moreover, the Nokia Domain Proxy’s capabilities will be implemented as scalable edge cloud-native microservices, which aggregate multiple radio links to simplify SAS connectivity in large deployments.

Hence, this new solution will allow CSPs, MSOs, and enterprises to deploy reliable CBRS networks quicker and more easily, as well as complements Nokia’s portfolio of FCC-certified CBRS radio and devices, and adds to its range of 4.9G/LTE and 5G private wireless networking solutions.

Alongside Key Bridge, Nokia aims to give PAL and GAA users a new standard in ease of use, which will allow them to expand and accelerate their CBRS plans and maximize the value of their investment. The Nokia offering is then stated to fulfill all FCC rules governing the use of shared CBRS spectrum and should be available immediately.
