There are two main categories of device types and models in the market today. First group is a collection of tablets, laptops, smartphones and handsets. Second group consists of USB/Ethernet to CBRS gateways and adapters, mobile, branch and IoT routers with Wi-Fi hotspot capability and edge computer appliances.

We are maintaining an extensive list of devices as highlighted below, summarized from FCC's public database. Note that Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is also known as LTE band 48 or the spectrum between 3.55-3.7GHz in the US.

Test results, configuration steps and troubleshooting options for devices that have so far been successfully tested on Celona's CBRS LTE private mobile network are recorded as a separate collection of documents. Video recording of these tests are also published on our YouTube playlist JR's Lab thanks to our tech marketing lead Jeremy Rollinson. As one should, we have also been maintaining the running list of CBRS capable devices, in no particular order, as a Twitter thread.
