Federated Wireless just launched a new managed 4G/5G service on the CBRS that connects directly to both Amazon and Microsoft clouds. What does this mean and why does it matter to companies? Keep reading to learn more.
The Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is a newly approved channel that the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) just opened up to private use in January 2020. In simple terms, it is a band of the radio-frequency spectrum from 3.5GHz to 3.7GHz designed for use by priority and authorized users. Previously, only the United States Navy and a few select licensees had access. There has been quite a bit of buzz about CBRS over the last couple of years and this move to opening it up to the public was highly anticipated.
Essentially, they are launching an exceptional service that acts as a consistent connection to the internet over a 4G/5G connection. When a new customer signs up, Federated Wireless sends out a representative to do a site summary and install specialized computer equipment. From there, the carrier monitors connectivity and manages the system afterward. They also connect the system to your Amazon or Microsoft Azure cloud account.
The reason why CBRS is better than WiFi simply comes down to traffic. While WiFi is an excellent option in certain circumstances, the CBRS network doesn’t have as much competition because fewer people overall are using it. Furthermore, Federated Wireless’ connection to the Amazon and Microsoft Azure clouds make it much more reliable and more comfortable to connect to in mobile situations. For example, communication between vehicles in motion and even the connection of machines is possible.
When it comes to how this affects companies, the main thing to consider is reliability. By using this new bandwidth in conjunction with connectivity to the cloud, companies have more excellent reliability and flexibility when it comes to their networks. In specific industries and situations, this can be a critical link in keeping your entire team connected when and where they need it most.
To put it simply, Federated Wireless’ new managed 4G/5G service is quite exciting for those in the tech industry. By utilizing a newly opened bandwidth channel, they can help your company setup a connection that can be used virtually anywhere with pretty solid results. While this technology is still pretty new, it is looking like a fairly promising avenue for companies in many different industries.
