Federated Wireless and Cambium Networks announced a partnership aimed at delivering Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) connectivity to Cambium Networks’ Fixed Wireless Broadband customers.

With this agreement, the two companies are enabling Cambium Networks’ customers to leverage CBRS to enhance existing and introduce new fixed wireless broadband services for residential, enterprise, government and industrial networking applications.

Cambium Networks’ extensive portfolio of reliable, scalable and secure cloud-managed wireless solutions makes it possible for service providers to build powerful communications networks. CBRS will allow WISPs and other network operators to immediately expand their usable spectrum capacity from 50 MHz to 150 MHz in any given region. Cambium Networks’ field-proven technology provides a high-speed, low latency, scalable platform to take advantage of this expanded capacity that will be dynamically managed for interference mitigation.

Federated Wireless is at the forefront of shared spectrum technology, recently announcing the anticipated completion of its dedicated nationwide ESC network and plans to roll out initial commercial CBRS service in close to 16,000 nationwide sites in Q1 2019.

CBRS changes everything – unlocking a large slice of spectrum for broader commercial use. Our cnMedusa Massive MU-MIMO technology with adaptive beamforming capabilities is field proven and enables network operators to achieve the highest throughput capacity in limited spectrum.

The PAL license rules approved by the FCC in October leave plenty of room for WISPs to leverage shared spectrum to expand services and reach, as evidenced by the more than 80 WISPs that participated in our Initial Commercial Deployment (ICD) proposal submitted in September.
