Easily deploy a private LTE wireless network

Thanks to Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), you can easily deploy a private LTE wireless network. See how it works and why it makes sense for crowded environments and large events.

Increasing Connectivity in Large Spaces

Network connectivity within distributed locales – like distribution centers, seaports, airports, campuses, and even cities – has always been a challenge. LANs don’t upscale cost-effectively and WANs don’t downscale operationally. With the democratization of wireless spectrum and cloudification of carrier infrastructure, Private LTE has emerged as an ideal solution for the “wide-area LAN” problem. It combines the control and fixed cost of a private network with the flexibility, security, and macro-network benefits of LTE, and has a built-in pathway to Private 5G.

What is CBRS? – An Explanation & Details

CBRS is a 3550 to 3700 MHz broadband that the FCC has authorized for commercial LTE use. Rules established around CBRS by the FCC allow three tiers for sharing the fifteen 10MHz channels.

Tier 1 – Incumbent Users (IU)

Always protected from lower tier users and given highest priority such as military radar, wireless ISPs, and fixed-satellite service earth stations.

Tier 2 – Priority Access License Users (PAL)

Entities who have purchased “priority” access licenses in the 3550-3650 MHz range in a country-by-country auction.

Tier 3 – Generalized Authorized Access (GAA)

Users with non-exclusive rights can utilize any channel in the 3550-3700 MHz range.

Benefits of Private LTE/CBRS

Private LTE CBRS makes it easier to cover a large service area that would typically require mobile phone coverage. The CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) chipset offering in the latest mobile phones allows for normal cellular calling over the Private LTE, without requiring a separate phone service from a carrier such as Verizon, ATT, etc.

Through CBRS, you get your own private cellular service with extended data coverage for lower bandwidth applications over a large service territory. This exclusive use of a cellular network by a private enterprise centralizes coordination, minimizes interference, and maximizes spectrum use. The result is a better user experience in crowded environments with many users and limited space.
