Registering your Flower with the Spectrum Access System is a critical step in ensuring compliance with the FCC. The SAS acts as air traffic control for devices operating on CBRS, ensuring that devices are not interfering with each other and, most importantly, ensuring that incumbent users are protected. A CBRS device must have authorization from the SAS before it can transmit.
When registering your Pollen Mobile Flower with the SAS, each antenna must be authorized separately, and as such, each antenna goes through its own registration process. Devices with multiple antennas include Buttercups, Moonflowers, and Sunflowers.
The following are the most common statuses that you will see from the SAS:
|Pending||This is a Pollen created status that means you need to submit your information with our CPIs. Once received, we will follow up with any questions or issues, or begin your SAS registration process.|
|Registered||Your Flower's antennas have been Registered with the SAS, but do not have any grants yet. Your Flower should automatically request and receive grants.|
Your Flower's antennas have received grants, but they must send heartbeat messages to the SAS to communicate they are alive. Seeing a Granted status means that the SAS has not seen a heartbeat from your Flower. Once your Flower sends a heartbeat message, this status will change to Authorized.
|Authorized||Your Flower is fully authorized to operate. Keep in mind that authorization does not mean that your Flower is operating at the maximum EIRP.|
|Suspended||Your Flower's grants have been Suspended by the SAS and it's not authorized to broadcast. This can happen when a device is deemed to interfere with higher priority users. We recommend waiting for 24 hours to see if your grant status resolves.|
