3.5 GHz band

(redirected from 3.5GHz band)

3.5 GHz band

An unlicensed frequency range in the U.S., known as the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). Introduced in 2015, the Spectrum Access System (SAS) architecture coordinates and dynamically shares 150 MHz of the 3.5 GHz spectrum in three tiers. Incumbent includes existing federal government and grandfathered satellite and wireless services. A Priority Access License (PAL) is assigned to licensees for three years, and General Authorized Access (GAA) is open to the largest variety of users, which may use the entire 150 MHz if there are no PAL users or incumbents.

Sensors along the coast of the U.S. detect federal shipboard use and reallocate channels within the band. See 2.4 GHz band, 5 GHz band, ISM band and LTE Advanced.

Attempting to balance the benefits of long license terms for investment with the benefits of short licenses for innovative entrants, the Federal Communications Commission has recently proposed using a three-year license term for priority access to the 3.5GHz band. The apparent goal is to provide some protection for long-term investments while still allowing relatively quick turnover of spectrum users and uses as needs and technology change.
