With the 3.5GHz CBRS band now commercially available in the US -- after years of preparation -- we can look ahead to what happens next as the midband frequency is used for 4G, 5G and possibly more.
Federated Wireless CEO Iyad Tarazi is looking forward to 4G and private network usage of the CBRS band, and preparing to bring up the 5G specification for 3.5GHz later this year. Even further out is work to open up the 6GHz band in a similar manner to CBRS.
Initial stages of commercial service
But there's traction being made today. Tarazi told Light Reading that Federated Wireless has "35 customers in deployment right now." Those customers include Verizon Wireless, which is using the frequency for 4G network densification, and Charter Communications, which is offering fixed wireless in North Carolina using the band.
