What is Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) and Why is it Being Talked About so Much?

I realised that even though we have been mentioning CBRS in many different discussions, I have never posted anything about it. So this short blog post has some embedded videos and links for you to learn this topic further.
Before we go any further, let me point out couple of very important things.
  1. CBRS is specific to the US market only - it is not applicable to any other country outside USA
  2. The CBRS spectrum is 3.5 GHz in which LTE will be deployed. The rest of the world is using this spectrum for 5G
So the best and very recent tutorial on this topic is from the training company, Award Solutions. A webinar from them is embedded below.



Ruckus Education (Commscope) has a nice popular introduction video as well, that is embedded below as well.



In addition, here are few other resources to read:

High-level Architecture Introduction of Mobile Cellular Networks from 2G to 5G

Here is an old tutorial explaining high level mobile network architecture, starting from GSM and then looking at GPRS, UMTS, LTE & 5G.

5G Connectivity will Enable New Use Cases

While we have been discussing advanced 5G use cases for years, it is only now, with the Standalone 5G (5G SA) that it is going to become possible to have many of these in practice. Of course they will take time to mature and be popular with the end users. As a part of our Free 5G Training initiative , we made a short video that will provide you with ideas and motivation for why 5G could do a lot more than just faster speeds. The video is embedded below. In addition, Parallel Wireless, one of the companies I consult for, did a webinar on 5G Use Cases which is available here .

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and the Path to 5G Wireless Wireline Convergence (WWC)

I have covered Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) on The 3G4G Blog here and looked at automated HetNet design which included FWA links here . I have also covered Wireline Wireless Convergence (WWC) as part of 5G and Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) posts. The links to the posts are available at the end. Back in December, Juniper took part in a Light Reading webinar which is being shared as part of this post. With revenues flat and traffic continuing to explode, the unsustainable state of network economics needs another disruption. The 5G deployment cycle offers an insertion opportunity for new converged architectures. Wireless offload solutions can re-route the traffic of data-hogging mobile subscribers over wireline cores built for bandwidth and performance rather than mobile cores (EPC) primarily designed for mobility and portability. The 5G Network Architecture in 3GPP Release-16 allows the convergence of fixed and wireless networks. This also allows many new opportunities as can be se
