BN - CBRS Installations

CBRS Steps in the BN Web UI

  1. Under Setup, change the Cloud URL from: 


  2. Click on Installation Parameters.

  3. Verify the latitude, longitude, and tilt (received from GPS unit on the BN) and the height and azimuth. For CBRS deployments, height should be measured above ground level (AGL) in meters.

  4. Enter your CPI-ID. Then click Confirm. Note: Check that the number entered is your CPI-ID and not your CPI Certificate number.

  5. After entering the BN installation parameters, verify that the BN is broadcasting, which is indicated by the Radio Control icon in the BN’s web UI.


CBRS Steps in TCS

For CBRS installations, the CPI should edit their user profile in TCS to include the CPI-ID and upload their CPI certificate. The CPI Certificate is a .p12 file.



Take care that you enter the CPI-ID number in the CPI-ID field and not the CPI Certificate number. For example, note the similarities between a Google .p12 file name and the related CPI-ID: 

GOOG-000365_2295819 (name of .p12 file) 

GOOG-000365 (CPI-ID) 

The FCC OR-ID and SAS fields must be configured for CBRS installations. These parameters are under Network Configuration. Edit the Operator page to configure these parameters.



The FCC OR-ID is assigned to customers by the Spectrum Access System provider (Google or Federated Wireless).

From the BN’s Device page in TCS, click on the CBRS button in the green device summary card.


Here, you can verify that the BN has been assigned spectrum. In the example on this page, the dark green indicates that the spectrum has been granted and authorized by the SAS. If it were light green, this would indicate that the spectrum had been granted but not authorized. In this case, the radios would be off.
