JMA's XRAN Private LTE CBRS Solution Powers Network for American Dream Complex

JMA, a global leader of edge-based communications technology, has announced it is deploying a private LTE network using Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Spectrum for the American Dream complex in East Rutherford, NJ, the company said.

American Dream is revolutionizing the retail and entertainment space with its first of its kind destination for fashion and luxury retail, fine to casual dining and an array of unexpected entertainment. In partnership with JMA, the American Dream complex rolls out instrumental CBRS deployments focusing on outdoor spaces for comprehensive traffic management, parking and wayfinding information systems.

Using private and dedicated use spectrum, these critical guest experience systems operate independent of public use WiFi and cellular networks. Additional uses will evolve for fixed and mobile devices including video cameras, digital displays, vehicle connectivity, internal use communications, and IoT for facility operations.

JMA partner, ANS Advanced Network Services LLC (ANS), is deploying JMA´s commercial carrier and private wireless technology for American Dream, empowering guests and tenants with unrivaled connectivity inside and outside the complex. Both networks leverage a high capacity, multi-service shared wireless infrastructure centered on JMA´s TEKO™ and NWAV™ distributed radio and antenna systems. The private network, used for facility operations and guest services, is one of the nation´s first Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorized commercial deployments using the new CBRS shared spectrum at 3.5GHz.

CBRS spectrum surrounding the complex is enabled with JMA´s XRAN, a 100% virtualized, software baseband running on standard Intel Xeon™ servers. XRAN powers a virtualized Radio Access Network (RAN) platform that provides complete flexibility and software programmability, easily expanded or adapted as American Dream needs evolve. The solution utilizes JMA´s Cell Hub CBRS Radios working in conjunction with XRAN software. JMA´s CBRS solution is OnGo certified by the CBRS Alliance, meeting both FCC authorization for CBRS and 3GPP LTE interoperability requirements. See related story at here.
