EION Wireless CBRS Complete Solution

What is CBRS?

CBRS is 150 MHz of spectrum – ranging from 3550 – 3700 MHz – in the 3.5 GHz band. In April 2015, the FCC established Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) for shared commercial use of that band. Some of this spectrum will continue to be used by the United States government for radar systems but will be available for others where not needed by the Navy.

Licenses in CBRS are in three tiers:

  • Tier 1: Incumbent protection – Reserved for fixed satellite stations or government agencies.

  • Tier 2: Priority Access License (PAL) – Users in this tier must bid for these licenses to have priority access.

  • Tier 3: General Availability Access (GAA) – GAA users do not have to bid for licenses but they are required to register
