The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) has designated CommScope as an approved Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Root of Trust Certificate Authority (CA). CommScope joins the other approved ROT CAs: DigiCert, Insta, and Kyrio

As a WInnForum approved Root of Trust Operator, CommScope is now able to provide RSA-based and elliptic curve-based CA and device certificates anchored by a CBRS Root CA through its Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Center. CommScope says its PKI Center has generated over five billion keys for various security ecosystems and successfully completed annual Certificate Authority WebTrust compliance audits.

“As interest in CBRS continues to grow, network operators and other organizations are increasingly looking for partners with the expertise, services, and solutions they need to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy secure CBRS networks,” Ben Cardwell, CommScope senior vice president and segment leader of Venue and Campus Networks said. “CommScope’s approval as one of only four CBRS Root CAs further strengthens our position as a one-stop shop for organizations seeking a trusted partner for their CBRS network deployments.”
