Google and CommScope are each providing their own separate Spectrum Access System (SAS) administration services, but they're combining resources to jointly operate an Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) network for the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) 3.5 GHz band.
The deal is notable because despite Google having the big-time name recognition, CommScope has been making a name for itself in the CBRS space. The company has been well-known in the infrastructure arena, but the spectrum management space is something different. Last month, AT&T announced that it had selected Samsung Electronics America and CommScope to supply the company with its first 5G-ready CBRS network solution, with CommScope providing the SAS.
