Apple, the iPhone 11, CBRS and the enterprise
Apple’s iPhone 11 introduced support for Citizens Broadband Radio Services (CBRS) for the first time, which should help U.S. enterprise users solve real problems. What is it and what can it do?
What is Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)?
A simplified explanation of CBRS is that it’s a selection of new frequencies recently made available in the U.S. by the Federal Communications Commission.
It’s sometimes also referred to as “private LTE,” because it enables users to create ad hoc wireless networks that are both ultra-private and more reliable than Wi-Fi. The frequencies used are between 3,550-3,700MHz in the 3.5GHz band.
