WInnForum CBSD Testing and Certification Program

In order to be FCC certified to operate in the CBRS Band, an equipment manufacturer will need to show that their CBSD can communicate with a Spectrum Access System and follow its directives as per Part 96. The CBRS ecosystem has developed standards in the WInnForum supporting SAS to CBSD communication (WINNF-TS-0016
Version 1.2.1). In addition, the WInnForum CBRS Test and Certification Task Group has developed a test specification (WINNF-TS-0122-V1.0.0) and is finalizing a test harness supporting that standard. Successful completion of the defined tests will provide evidence of Part 96 compliance in this area.

WInnForum is facilitating CBSD certification testing, as requested by its members, for all organizations, both member and non-member, against this test specification by accrediting FCC approved test labs to run the WInnForum CBSD tests
