Federated Wireless will provide service in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to Cambium Networks’ fixed wireless broadband customers through a recently signed partnership. The two companies will leverage CBRS to enhance existing networks and introduce new fixed wireless broadband services for residential, enterprise, government and industrial networking applications.
The CBRS’s priority access license rules will allow WISPs to use shared spectrum to expand services and reach. More than 80 WISPs participated in Cambium’s initial commercial deployment proposal submitted in September.
CBRS will allow WISPs and other network operators to expand their usable spectrum capacity from 50 megahertz to 150 megahertz.
Todd Gore, VP sales at Federated Wireless, said. “Our partnership with Cambium Networks enables WISPs to bring wireless services to both urban and rural customers more cost effectively via CBRS, whether or not they secure a PAL license.”
