A Key Business Enabler

Exploring the Possibilities of CBRS

Citizens Broadband Radio Service, or CBRS, is a band of radio-frequency spectrum from 3.5GHz to 3.7GHz that has been allocated in the US for not only traditional operators and cable companies, but also non-traditional players such as Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) and enterprises spanning the utility, energy, manufacturing and agricultural industries.
In particular, enterprises with access to CBRS have an efficient way to build private networks that can open up new business opportunities using the mid-band frequency. Compared to previous technologies, CBRS enables a mobile environment, supports a high level of privacy and security and, more importantly, ensures carrier-grade performance for high reliability. CBRS also meets the low latency needs of mission critical communications and enterprises can leverage this aspect to support these services in their private networks.

OnGo Certified and Dependable Solutions

Samsung’s CBRS solutions have been certified by the CBRS Alliance with our Massive MIMO, macro radio and outdoor smallcell all having received the OnGo® certification. OnGo® Certification ensures its members’ solutions meet the highest level of quality standards for reliable and quality service. A CBRS product must go through different tests to be validated for its quality, interoperability and security before obtaining the certification. With the accreditation, enterprises and service providers are assured that Samsung’s CBRS solutions satisfy the organization’s stringent standards.

Expediting Powerful CBRS Service

Samsung’s CBRS solutions provides simultaneous support of LTE and 5G. For operators who want to operate a LTE network, our solution provides a simple software upgrade path for smooth migration to 5G NR for additional performance growth. Samsung’s CBRS Massive MIMO macro radio is an essential solution that supports high speed, wide bandwidth and massive data capacity. The product operates over the entire CBRS Spectrum of 150MHz and can simultaneously transmit a combination of contiguous or non-contiguous 10 or 20MHz carriers, across the entire CBRS Band for both PAL and GAA, up to 100MHz. This is an unmatched quality by other commercial solutions. The Massive MIMO Radio also uses a large number of antenna elements that create multiple beams to precisely target devices and supports MU-MIMO (multi-user MIMO) that increase user throughput by minimizing interference. Even with powerful performance, the product has a slim design with rounded sides and is lightweight so that it can blend in easily with the surrounding environment after installation.

Samsung’s CBRS solutions offers optimal installation options to empower operators
and enterprises with an easier introduction of
private networks and facilitate
rapid network deployment.
Samsung’s CBRS radio also has
a slim design with rounded
sides so that it can easily fit into the surrounding environments. The product is also equipped with a
clip-on antenna and AC/DC
converter that can be mounted on
its side. A single worker can easily take care of the simplified deployment process and rental cost can be reduced without requiring extra room for the additional accessories. Samsung’s CBRS outdoor smallcell can be mounted on a strand, which eases the painful site acquisition process and enables the product to be installed for
network coverage expansion for
areas with high data traffic consumption.

Connecting Communities and Industries

Samsung is an end-to-end solutions provider consisting of not only equipment, but also devices, management services and applications that can be serviced in a private network. We provide customized and optimal solution packages through close consultations with each operator and enterprise customer. Based on this strong foundation, Samsung is expanding our CBRS private network business with various industry partners. We are equipped with CBRS equipment that can cover both indoors and outdoors so enterprises can choose the right solution for an environment and services that require a private network.

For instance, CBRS is providing connectivity for the hospitality sector and residential spaces. A CBRS based network can also become the platform to provide fixed wireless access services, which provides high-quality wireless services for underserved or hard-to-reach rural areas. By simply adding new radios to existing cellular sites, internet service can be delivered to customers and is a more cost-effective and time-saving approach than cable or fiber-based solutions. For the
manufacturing or logistics sector, CBRS can empower IoT solutions, connecting thousands of sensors to collect and analyze diverse information. In the utility sector, CBRS can be used to adopt smart meters in residential areas. These are only a few of the many use cases that will become possible with CBRS.
