what is shared spectrum?

The U.S. is at the forefront of innovation that will transform mobile communications globally: spectrum sharing.

In an effort to increase spectral efficiency and ensure that there is enough available spectrum to support the explosive growth of wireless data, the FCC has established the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) in the 3.5 GHz radio band for nationwide spectrum sharing.



CBRS is blazing a new trail in spectrum policy and is opening new opportunities along the way. The novel approach to spectrum sharing is opening up 150 MHz of favorable 3.5 GHz band whose ecosystem already has traction worldwide.

A large swath of spectrum, a flexible spectrum licensing regime, and a growing CBRS ecosystem supported by all major cable and mobile operators bodes well for technology and business innovations in the CBRS band.
