|BigRed CBRS Network Build is Mature per Report. Commercial Deployment is Ready for 'GO' even before FCC 'OK' (selected portion of lightreading article)|
Verizon Slaking Mid-Band Spectrum Thirst With 3.5GHz CBRS Deployment Mike Dano, Editorial Director, 5G & Mobile Strategies 6/4/2019 For months, Verizon has been deploying antennas into its network that can support transmissions in the 3.5GHz CBRS band, several sources have told Light Reading. The company, for roughly a year, has been urging its handset suppliers to add 3.5GHz capabilities into their smartphones built for Verizon.
Although Verizon has long voiced interest in commercial operations in the 3.5GHz CBRS band, the operator's ongoing rollout of support for the spectrum band is noteworthy considering the FCC hasn't even yet given its final blessing to commercial operations in the band...
Verizon's ongoing rollout of 3.5GHz equipment highlights the operator's expanding embrace of commercial operations in unlicensed spectrum... its initial deployments in the CBRS band are occurring well before the FCC plans to auction 3.5GHz spectrum licenses. Thus, Verizon's CBRS rollout -- coupled with its simultaneous ongoing rollout of License Assisted Access (LAA) technology in the unlicensed 5GHz band -- clearly reflect the carrier's growing penchant for adding capacity to its network by using "free" unlicensed spectrum traditionally used by the likes of WiFi and Bluetooth... shows that Verizon is keen to put the band to commercial use much more quickly than expected...
the FCC is expected to sign off on broad, unlicensed commercial use of the 3.5GHz band in the third quarter.
Then, in 2020, the FCC is expected to conduct auctions of 3.5GHz licenses.
