Fortress Solutions Joins OnGo Alliance as Systems Integrator with 4G / 5G Private Mobile Network Inter-Operability Test Lab
PLANO, TX – Fortress Solutions, a leader of telecom infrastructure equipment repair and now including a full suite of wireless engineering services for Private Mobile Networks (PMN), today announced they have joined the OnGo Alliance to deepen their connections in the wireless sector and better serve their customers. The OnGo Alliance’s purpose is to support the common interests of members, implementers, and operators for the development, commercialization, and adoption of LTE and 5G NR solutions for the US 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).
Fortress Solutions made this announcement in conjunction with the OnGo Alliance Annual Members Meeting and Exhibitor Showcase in Dallas, April 10-13, 2023, where the company is also announcing the establishment of an inter-operability test lab devoted to the private wireless community. This facility will be able to test hosted managed services solutions for deployment and conduct post-deployment evaluations, including, but not limited to, technical support and network monitoring.
Being a cohesive partner to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and vendors in the PMN/CBRS space, Fortress has the distinguishing capability of bringing performers together for inter-operability testing regardless of manufacturer and/or vendor. This unique capability allows Fortress the ability to partner with performers across the industry, regardless of size, platform, device, etc. As a result, Fortress can be a key partner in all the critical phases of the network lifecycle: from initial design to post-deployment day 2 services.
Peter Spouse, Fortress Advisor and CBRS veteran stated:
The Private Wireless community was missing a key ingredient, namely, the glue to bring various vendors, devices, and technologies together to ensure the enterprise’s solution works seamlessly in the lab before it’s deployed in the field. The Fortress inter-operability lab allows collaboration between the best brands and organizations to create easy communications and connections for everyone.
Fortress’s overall portfolio of services for the wireless network operators includes site surveys, indoor and outdoor RF network planning, commissioning and integration, drive testing, customized key performance indicators (KPI) reporting – Grafana as a service and network optimization. Their Certified Professional Installers (CPIs) are widely experienced in multi-OEM inter-operability testing and integration.
Alan Ewing, OnGo Alliance Exectuve Director stated:
We are excited to welcome Fortress Solutions to the OnGo Alliance. Their expertise in streamlining enterprise deployment of CBRS-based private networks will be invaluable as we work together to drive innovation and expand the use of OnGo technology.
