Cambium says 20,000 of its CBRS devices are in use

Cambium Networks has announced that approximately 20,000 of its Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) devices are now being used by more than 150 service provider customers in the US, with fixed wireless currently the primary outlet for the technology.

CBRS uses the 3550–3700 MHz spectrum and has a variety of uses, such as the deployment of private networks and supplementing mobile operators’ networks with additional fixed-wireless access and mid-band spectrum.

There is a 17 October 2020 expiration date for most current licences managed under the US FCC’s Part 90 rules. Those who fail to migrate by the deadline will have to cease operation or rush a migration to CBRS.

“CBRS spectrum is a precious resource, and effectively exercising it requires long-term planning and vision,” Cambium Networks CEO Atul Bhatnagar said, adding that it is “very clear to us that operators must act now, both to take advantage of CBRS opportunities already in play and to avoid missing the opportunity before the deadline”.
