Ericsson and Anterix, the largest holder of licensed and contiguous 900MHz spectrum in the United States, are collaborating to deploy innovative private network operational models in the utilities segment. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently certified the Ericsson Radio 2212/2012 in this spectrum, which will complement Ericsson’s existing utility deployments with Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CRBS), as utilities increasingly look to private cellular networks to build more reliable, secure, and flexible digital infrastructures to accommodate current and future mission-critical use cases.

The radios will operate in 4G/LTE with the ability to seamlessly transition to 5G in the future. The Ericsson Radio 2212 from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio is a small and light, multi-standard outdoor macro radio offering excellent radio performance and power efficiency for wide-area 3GPP radio products, which can be combined with other solutions for a flexible and scalable installation.
