In recent CBRS updates, legacy Wireless Broadband Service (WBS), like WiMAX, have until 2023 to migrate, which is an extension from the earlier 2020 deadline. These legacy users must shift to become either GAA or PAL users under CBRS/SAS system.

 

There are over 100,000 access points deployed on the CBRS network as of November, 2020. Most of the CBRS deployments are Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

 

With PAL licenses issuance due to be completed by FCC on April 15, 2021, commercial PAL deployments could start then, if no delays occur. See https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/retrieveECFR?gp=&SID=2dd346ae3b51f2866ab6fb907e755526&mc=true&r=PART&n=pt47.5.96

 

Since GAA users are not protected, there may be interferences between GAAs as co-existence between GAAs is managed offline (outside the SAS). Any interference between GAA users can be resolved manually. For users on the same SAS network, this can be automated between SAS admins/operators via software. Federated Wireless is looking to automate this by mid-2021.

 

As of February 2021, more than 100 CBSD Models are now certified for use in deployments of CBRS networks. There are also more than 2,500 certified CPIs.
