ITASCA -- Lemko Corp. and Federated Wireless have agreed to partner in an effort to further the goal of wireless innovation as part of the FCC's Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) initiative,
The two companies will work to develop a private LTE solution based on CBRS shared spectrum. LEMKO's 4G EZ Access Point will provide private LTE solutions for both indoor and outdoor CBRS applications and Federated Wireless is providing the cloud-based spectrum controller that gives operators and enterprises a cost-effective and dynamic option for accessing this new spectrum.
The CBRS 3.5 GHz band will enable new entrants into the wireless broadband services market. Underserved markets, IoT applications and mission critical enterprise applications are segments demanding rapid innovation. The CBRS band provides needed spectrum for new entrants and new applications, while addressing potential interference and coordination issues with new spectrum sharing and management techniques.
"We think private LTE is one of the most promising new applications that immediately becomes available as we provide cost-effective access to new LTE spectrum," said Iyad Tarazi, CEO of Federated Wireless. "Our spectrum controller, paired with the LEMKO LTE solution, will allow Enterprises to control their own destiny by running LTE interference-free on a secure and dedicated band."
