To further the goal of wireless innovation as part of the FCC’s Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) initiative, LEMKO and Federated Wireless reportedly have agreed to work together on a Private LTE solution, based on CBRS shared spectrum. According to the announcement, 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-e?ective and
dynamic option for accessing this new spectrum.

The CBRS 3.5 GHz band is designed to 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.

Designed for Enterprise and Industry Vertical IoT Solutions, EZ LTE provides carriergrade broadband connectivity for Private networks. Lemko’s EZ LTE delivers an LTE solution with network scalability and Drop-n-Go economics normally associated with Wi-Fi solutions.

“Our vision is to connect everything anywhere by driving the lowest connectivity cost to enable a fully networked world. Our EZ LTE delivers LTE QoS and Security with Wi-Fi like economics,” said Bo Pyskir, President and Founder, LEMKO Corporation.

The Federated Wireless Spectrum Controller dynamically manages access to the 3.5 GHz band from a cloud-based software system that protects incumbents while making spectrum available for commercial use. At the heart of the solution is a cognitive engine that provides automated spectrum lifecycle management nationwide.

“We think private LTE is one of the most promising new applications that immediately becomes available as we provide cost-e?ective access to new LTE spectrum,” said Iyad Tarazi, CEO, 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.”
