Bandwidth Usage in WiFi
PLTE/CBRS is a high performance, reliable, and secure alternative to Wi-Fi in large areas such as stadiums, warehouses, ports, airports and cities. Wi-Fi 5 and even with 6 has become congested. CBRS helps alleviate this bottleneck by utilizing a new band of frequencies. It’s like adding lanes to a highway and eliminating any traffic jams. Private LTE offers a more efficient use of spectrum.
Private LTE —
3.5 GHz Band
Cisco, Google, Intel, Facebook, Alcatel Lucent Enterprise, Ruckus, Cradlepoint and others are developing networks for this band.
Private LTE using the commercially available CBRS band can be used instead of or in combination with traditional Wi-Fi. Cellular coverage gaps can be addressed in campus environments such as manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare, government agencies and stadiums. One big benefit of utilizing Private LTE is that it only requires the utilization of one third (1/3) of traditional wireless access points.
