    CBRS: MOVING FORWARD

    #WISPAWEBINAR | DECEMBER 5, 2018 @ 1PM EST

    Claude Aiken 0 439 Article rating: 5.0

    Webinar Summary: The FCC has recently adopted new rules for CBRS.  What do they mean?  Can you still access a PAL?  What are the implications on CBRS and WISP uses?  What's next?  When will the spectrum be commercially available?  Can I use GAA this year and if so, what will need to be done to start using the Band?  If I have Part 90 equipment, how can I transition it to CBRS equipment?  When will the FCC auction PAL spectrum?  What will the auction rules look like?  What do I need to do to make my network “CBRS ready?”  Get answers to these questions and others during this important Webinar.
