NASCTN launches first spectrum-sharing project with Federated Wireless

The National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN) has launched its first spectrum-sharing project, focusing on the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), with Federated Wireless.

FCC votes to adopt new 3.5 GHz spectrum sharing plan for 'Innovation Band'

The FCC voted today to adopt new spectrum sharing tools and policies to make 150 MHz of spectrum available for mobile broadband and other commercial uses. The radio waves sit in the 3.5 GHz band that previously was locked up by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Google worries about warehousing in 3.5 GHz band

Google has a lot of concerns about CTIA's recommendations for spectrum sharing in the 3.5 GHz band, one of which is raising the potential for spectrum warehousing.

Startup Federated Wireless working on spectrum sharing scheme for 3.5 GHz

A Boston-based firm founded by a group of scientists is building a system that will help operators, government entities and others navigate the tricky world of spectrum sharing in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band, or Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). The FCC has said it intends to apply spectrum sharing to the 3550-3650 MHz spectrum band and is considering extending that service to the 3700 MHz, which would provide a total of 150 MHz of spectrum to CBRS.

AT&T, Nokia among those endorsing spectrum-sharing tests in 'model city'

Commenters applauded a federal government proposal to set up a public-private partnership that would create a model city for testing spectrum-sharing policies and technologies.The plan was floated in July by the FCC and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

AT&T, Google and others pick apart FCC's 3.5 GHz spectrum-sharing scheme

The FCC has a lot of work ahead if it hopes to create consensus around its plans for a Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) at 3.5 GHz, as specific parts of its proposed rulemaking have come under attack from multiple corners.

Verizon, Qualcomm and Ericsson partner on field trials of 3.5 GHz spectrum sharing

Verizon is joining chipmaker Qualcomm and infrastructure vendor Ericsson on field trials of spectrum-sharing technology in the 3550-3650 MHz band at multiple locations.

FCC, NTIA eye creation of model city for dynamic spectrum-sharing tests

The FCC and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) are jointly soliciting comments regarding plans to set up a public-private partnership aimed at creating an urban test city where dynamic spectrum sharing could be demonstrated and evaluated.

3.5 GHz spectrum-sharing database 'could get very complicated,' says Accenture exec

One of the keys to enabling the FCC's plan for spectrum sharing in the new 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is the spectrum database, which will dynamically manage spectrum allocations on the fly, based on preset policies and spectrum availability to protect against interference that might negatively impact incumbents and priority users.
