UNM assists in proof of concept on outdoor Citizens Band Radio Service trial

Recently, the University of New Mexico, Wazco LLC and Celona demonstrated a novel deployment of Citizens Band Radio Service or CBRS-powered Private Mobile Network on UNM’s main campus in Albuquerque.

CBRS is an enterprise-grade wireless broadband network that is economically feasible. It’s also available as a service, so businesses can pay a predictable monthly fee. CBRS is used on thousands of Freeway Call Boxes, most notably in California, parks including Central Park in New York, and transportation venues like train and light rail stations.

CBRS is a band (band 48) of radiofrequency spectra from 3.5 GHz to 3.7 GHz for specific users including incumbent users such as the Navy, Priority Access Licensees (private users) and General Authorized Access or unlicensed users. Originally, this band was reserved for use by the U.S Department of Defense, namely for U.S. Navy radar systems.
