JMA Wireless, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Crown Castle have completed a private LTE network deployment for Carnegie Mellon University using Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum.

The CBRS network took less than three months to construct and commission, and first went live this summer in June. JMA and AWS teamed up to design and help build the network, which uses JMA’s XRAN virtualized RAN software with a Druid Software core running on AWS Snowball Edge. JMA outdoor CBRS radios were installed on campus alongside the vendor’s directional CBRS antennas deployed by Crown Castle.
