FCC Part 96 rules require that applicable CBRS Devices (CBSDs) be professionally installed. A Certified Professional Installer (CPI) may physically install the CBSD her/himself or may take the responsibility for accuracy of the data entered into the CBSD by another installer. All Category B CBSDs require CPI.
SAS Vendors provide access to their Web Portal (GUI) instance, the operator should use it for CBSDs provisioning.
Certified Professional Installers (CPI) uses their digital credentials to sign installation parameters for all CBSDs devices (mandatory for Category B CBSD registrations).
You should get the following information from the SAS vendor:
- CPI digital certificate (usually file extension p12 or private certificate)
- CPI digital certificate password
- CPI-ID (CPIR-ID)
- CPI-Name (optional)
