Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)

The FCC created the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to develop a regulatory framework for expanding access to desperately needed spectrum for wireless operators by allowing spectrum sharing in the 3.55 – 3.7 GHz band; the band typically used by the US Department of Defense for radar systems. This band, accessible by the three-tiered Spectrum Access System (SAS), would enable government access, priority access, and generalized authorized access.

With the increased external interference that an SAS system enables, operators need the advanced Spectrum-NET solution to detect and mitigate unauthorized use of their valuable spectrum assets.


About Spectrum Effect
Spectrum Effect’s revolutionary solution, Spectrum-NET, helps operators make the most of their valuable spectrum assets by rapidly identifying, locating and mitigating sources of RF interference and optimizing networks for future sharing opportunities.

Spectrum Effect has developed the key technology building blocks needed to rapidly maximize and monetize limited spectrum resources on today’s networks.
Spectrum Effect Product Solutions, Identify & Mitigate External Interference
As data demand steadily escalates, Spectrum-NET provides operators with the deep network visibility needed to protect their sizable investment in licensed spectrum and ensure ongoing service quality.
Spectrum Effect’s breakthrough, Spectrum-NET, addresses this dilemma by enabling mobile operators of shared spectrum networks to rapidly identify, characterize, and locate sources of external interference during normal network operation with no downtime.
Spectrum Effect’s Spectrum-NET solution has the advanced technology needed to provide a clear picture of complex, overcrowded 5G networks.
