Wireless Innovation Forum approves CBRS protocols

Wednesday 7 December 2016 | 13:03 CET | News
The Wireless Innovation Forum has approved its Spectrum Sharing Committee's signaling protocols and procedures to be used in the 3.5 GHz band in the US. Known as Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), the unlicensed band has been designated by the FCC as available for shared access between wireless broadband and other applications in the US. Access to spectrum is managed through the use of a Spectrum Access System (SAS), which protects operators from interference from lower-tier priority access licence and general authorised access users.
