David-vs-Goliath Battle Ahead for CBRS Spectrum, Better Fixed Wireless Broadband in Play

The FCC will vote later this month to explore rule changes for the 3550-3700 MHz spectrum band, known as the CBRS band, including the possibility of larger license areas for longer time periods. According to supporters, CBRS spectrum rule changes would facilitate the deployment of 5G services. But such rule changes could make it more difficult for rural carriers to obtain licenses to support fixed broadband wireless service in remote areas where high costs have prevented the deployment of traditional wired broadband infrastructure.

MWC Americas Preview

Mimosa will demo 5G Fixed solutions including the MicroPoP (suburban) and GigaPoP (rural), with an emphasis on the cutting-edge Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) software. The traditional MicroPoP consists of point-to-multipoint products, where access points reside on telephone poles, or something similar, in order to reach homes. The GigaPoP relies on access points placed on towers and clients with longer-distance capabilities, as homes are more spread out in rural areas. SRS fits into these solutions by allowing base stations to smartly reuse channels across the network, solving the high-density fixed wireless challenge. This means less spectrum is needed to deliver 5G Fixed solutions, as well as faster speeds for the subscriber.

Man’s DIY Internet Solution For Daughter Spreads Across Marin Coastal Town

Google studying 3.7-4.2 GHz band for variety of applications

The 3.7-4.2 GHz band is substantially underused by the satellite industry and Google is studying how much more intensively the band could be used for a variety of applications, including point-to-multipoint deployments. Brian Hinman, CEO and co-founder of Mimosa Networks, said the concept of “flexible use” spectrum that has been talked about at the FCC for a while now is a “complete fallacy.” Flexible use ultimately doesn’t happen because when operators pay that kind of money for the spectrum, they can’t afford to provide affordable service for consumers who need fixed access at home. And the U.S. would lose the opportunity to have a competitive market for fixed access if it were to go that route.

MicroPoP offers fast wireless broadband to urban areas

Mimosa reckons its Micro Point-of-Presence (MicroPoP) network architecture enables service providers to deliver gigabit wireless broadband and achieve the same speeds as fibre for a fraction of the cost. The system combines Mimosa’s new A5 access point and the C5 client device. With its “unique” quad-sector antennas and massive MIMO technology, the compact A5 is claimed to be the industry’s fastest multipoint solution purpose-built for high-density deployments, and offers more than 1Gbps of aggregate capacity.
