Non-carrier interests push FCC for parity in access to CBRS spectrum
In the U.S. mobile operators aren’t the only businesses who can make beneficial use of spectrum. For operators tasked with delivering more and more capacity to keep up with consumer usage, more spectrum is key component of bolstering network performance. For industrial players looking to implement internet of things solutions, private networks could serve as a key component of digital transformation strategies. As the Federal Communications Commission considers how to make the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band available for shared access, two new coalitions are pushing for rules that don’t leave behind industrial companies and small, largely rural, service providers.
