Expect commercial launch in the 3.5 GHz CBRS Band — Earlier this year, the FCC announced plans for the launch of commercial services in the CBRS 3.5 GHz band, a wide swath of lightly-used spectrum that currently has U.S. Department of Defense systems as its primary user. This new opportunity is enable through the use of a dynamic sharing mechanism which protects the incumbent government operations while allowing new commercial services. OnGo solutions for the band will offer secure, cost-effective connectivity in the places it is needed most, and at a fraction of the cost that has historically been associated with cellular technologies. There is universal agreement that mid-band spectrum will be critical for next-generation wireless services, and CBRS is the first mid-band spectrum being made available in the US.
