Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
We are expanding our 5G Stand Alone (SA) End-to-End system by adding over-the-air (OTA) capability. This indoor, private 5G system will be used to test the interoperability of NVIDIAs 5G solutions with O-RAN compliant vendors (for example radio unit). The system will include a 5G Core Network, 5G gNB, 5G Radio Unit (O-RU) and 5G SA capable devices (for example smart phone). The OTA TDD connection, between the radio unit & devices, will be operating over the 3.6GHz to 3.7GHz frequency band. This frequency range is within the CBRS band, which is currently commercially deployed. We are utilizing an occupied BW = 100MHz.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  We are creating a 5G Stand Alone (SA) End-to-End system which involves integration of the Radio Unit (O-RU) with the 5G gNB. This will allow NVIDIA to evaluate the functional operation of its 5G solutions which consists of physical layer signal processing, O-RAN front haul interface and interoperability with 3rd party O-RU equipment. With the Radio Unit integrated, we can conduct OTA testing with commercially available 5G SA devices in the 3.6GHz to 3.7GHz frequency band. The OTA testing will be indoors with the Radio Unit connected indoors and the mobile devices operating at lab bench level. We have contacted a Spectrum Access System (SAS) administrator to better understand the availability of this spectrum outdoors. They have not only shown that 100Mhz of spectrum is available outdoors, but also the spectrum is not being utilized. Since there are no other users of this spectrum indoors of the NVIIDA building we expect same BW to be available for our indoor usage.
