Shared spectrum is now a reality in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band.


With the FCC’s recent allocation of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum, entities now have spectrum available for wireless broadband use and private LTE network development.

The CBRS spectrum (3.5 GHz to 3.7 GHz) presents an incredible opportunity for local, state, and federal governments as well as education, healthcare, utilities, and transportation to implement a robust mission-critical indoor or outdoor wireless infrastructure.

CBRS is free shared spectrum which eliminates a significant deterrent to Private LTE network deployment. It is like WiFi on steroids. CBRS offers various service levels including Priority Access Licenses that mitigate interference for high availability applications.
