The Federal Communications Commission has authorized Huawei to demonstrate a remote radio unit transmitting in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band. The test is for Comcast, and is scheduled to take place between June 15 and June 17 at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Philadelphia.
Huawei will be using the Citizens Broadband Radio Service, which the FCC opened for commercial use two years ago. Since then, wireless carriers and their equipment suppliers have been working on new radios to leverage this unlicensed spectrum. The CBRS spectrum is seen as a good fit for multi-operator LTE small cells, and for private internet of things networks.
