3.5 GHz Gains Momentum with the CBRS Alliance
With the increasing support for the use of non-traditional licensed spectrum within the mobile industry, six of the biggest promoters of the shared 3.5 GHz band came together to form the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Alliance. The companies; namely Access Technologies (a division of Google’s parent Alphabet), Federated Wireless, Intel, Nokia, Qualcomm, and Ruckus Wireless, have been expressing the greatest interest in leveraging the band and developing the required technology since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced its plans for the band last year. After its establishment in August, the Alliance managed to attract another new seven members, including Airspan, American Tower, and most recently, CableLabs.
