ABOUT CBRS WEEK

All eyes are on the 3.5 GHz band as the CBRS ecosystem continues to accelerate. The band offers both licensed and unlicensed options via a spectrum-sharing architecture, and is paving the way for new and unique business models for both CSP’s and new market entrants. Not surprisingly, questions remain: What CBRS business cases make sense for the in building market, including campuses, hospitality, stadiums, healthcare, and retail? How will mobile operators, MSO’s, and WISPs be able to take advantage of the spectrum for next gen deployments? And how are industrial and manufacturing organizations going to be able to take advantage of CBRS for private wireless networks? Watch sessions on-demand from this Digital Summit to dive deep into these issues and more.

SERVICE PROVIDERS AND CBRS: WHERE’S THE OPPORTUNITY?

Mid-band spectrum is like a treasure in the United States, where there isn’t enough of it and everybody wants it. That’s why the big wireless carriers, some cable companies, and even some smaller wireless players have all indicated that they’re interested in participating in the CBRS auctions in July. What are the parameters for the spectrum auctions? What might cable companies do with the spectrum in terms of their MVNO arrangements? How will the big and small wireless carriers use the spectrum? Will service providers join in the fray to build private wireless networks?

11:00AM-12:15PM ET:
CBRS FOR IN-BUILDING WIRELESS

Until now, in-building wireless has relied on strategies that involve technologies like Wi-Fi and distributed antenna systems. But the availability of CBRS spectrum, and the advent of 5G, will change the in-building wireless landscape. Will CBRS end up complementing Wi-Fi or cannibalizing it? Will CBRS for in-building usage cause interference with the outdoor cellular networks? What are the considerations for building and implementing an in-building wireless solution with CBRS? Will CBRS change the relationship between enterprises and carriers for indoor wireless networks?

11:00AM-12:15PM ET:
USING CBRS FOR THE INDUSTRIAL IoT

Interest in private wireless networks has boomed with the prospect of mid-band CBRS spectrum becoming more available with this summer’s auctions. Some enterprises are excited to get their hands on the spectrum so they can build private wireless networks to manage industrial internet of things. But what are the costs and how easy, or difficult, will it be for an enterprise to build an IIoT network? What are the top applications these IoT networks will first support? Will CBRS networks for IIoT supplant existing IoT networks such as NB-IoT and CAT-M?
