CommAgility 5G NR Hardware and Software selected by Shared Spectrum for DoD 5G Project

Parsippany, New Jersey, USA, Sept. 20, 2021 – Wireless Telecom Group (NYSE American: WTT) announced that Shared Spectrum Company (SSC), a leading innovator of spectrum intelligence software and solutions, has selected 5G New Radio (NR) hardware and software from CommAgility for a US Department of Defense (DoD) project. CommAgility was selected because of its comprehensive software and hardware portfolio for 5G NR, which simplifies the development of 5G networks by providing integrated, flexible and customizable core software and Radio Access Network elements.

Shared Spectrum is working on the National Spectrum Consortium project (NSC-20-2084), part of the DoD’s awards for 5G experimentation and testing. The goal of this project is to develop technologies for 5G-enabled dynamic spectrum sharing, which will provide more available spectrum for new system users, with minimal impact on legacy wireless systems.

“Dynamic spectrum sharing can deliver additional spectrum access, and SSC’s experience in this field ensures a reliable, robust solution,” said Mark McHenry, CEO at SSC. “We look forward to working closely with CommAgility and leveraging their expertise in 5G software and hardware to complete this exciting new project.”

“We are excited to be involved with Shared Spectrum in this project to develop 5G spectrum sharing,” said Edward Young, Senior Vice President and Managing Director at CommAgility. “SSC is at the forefront of this technology, and we are confident our 5G NR solution will help them achieve new technological milestones.”

Shared Spectrum is using the CommAgility 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) software, with customizations to ensure seamless spectrum sharing. The suite of tools supplied include CommAgility’s SmallCellPHY-5G physical layer software, its SmallCellSTACK-5G protocol stack software, and its SmallCellCore-5G core software.

Additionally, Shared Spectrum selected the CommAgility 5G Reference gNodeB, a pre-integrated hardware and software system for 5G development. It is based on the NXP Layerscape® Access® 5G integrated SoC chipset and also includes the CommAgility CA-RF2-5Gn78 RF front end module. The hardware and software are fully integrated and tested, saving time and reducing risk for 5G developers and researchers.
