The CBRS Alliance revealed the nine categories for the inaugural 2020 OnGo Awards. The 2020 OnGo Awards program aims to recognize CBRS Alliance member and non-member companies across the OnGo ecosystem, ranging from device manufacturers to network operators to managed service providers, for their real-world use cases of the technology.
Recognition will be awarded to companies that have started to deploy OnGo and are already demonstrating some of the reasons CBRS was dubbed the “innovation band” from its inception.
Representing the breadth of use cases enabled by OnGo, winners will be recognized for distinction in business models, ease of deployment, cost savings, new service offerings, and cutting-edge technology. Submissions for the 2020 OnGo Awards will open in March 2020.
“Now that the FCC has announced the full commercial deployment of the CBRS band, we expect to see an increased adoption of OnGo technology across all vertical markets. The CBRS Alliance has a major mission to share as many real-world OnGo deployment stories as possible. The OnGo Awards will allow us to accomplish that goal,” said CBRS Alliance Executive Director Alan Ewing. “We’re looking to raise awareness for the impact that OnGo technology will have on the wireless market and we look forward to continuing this award program for years to come.”
