PCTel joins CBRS Alliance, to support 3.5 GHz spectrum sharing

Friday 28 July 2017 | 14:53 CET | News
Wireless equipment provider PCTel has joined the CBRS Alliance. The Alliance seeks to develop and promote new LTE-based services for the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, using the shared spectrum model adopted by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). PCTel and the CBRS Alliance believe that efficient use of this underutilized 3.5 GHz spectrum will expand coverage and capacity to meet growing wireless data demands. PCTel scanning receivers currently support LTE network testing on the 3.5 GHz CBRS band.
