Ligado Band Plan With GPS 1670 Only

On behalf of Ligado Networks, Select Spectrum offers broadband licensed spectrum in Band 105 (1670-1675 MHz). Available for localized leasing, nationwide, Band 105 provides 5 MHz of contiguous capacity coupled with excellent coverage. Ligado Networks has initiated the process to secure 3GPP approval for Band 105, which will result in this spectrum being standardized for 4G/5G, as is the case for its 3GPP approved Band 24 spectrum.

The Band 105 is the optimal solution for electric utilities, energy exploration companies, and other critical infrastructure organizations with interest in private, network-driven applications.

Key Benefits of Band 105 Spectrum

Capacity and Coverage

Capacity and Coverage

Band 105 provides a dynamic combination of capacity and coverage characteristics that delivers cost-effective and superior performance for 4G/5G service deployments.

  • 5 MHz contiguous capacity - sufficient for nearly all targeted Private 4G/5G applications
    • If additional capacity is required, up to 30 MHz of Band 24 spectrum is available from Ligado
  • Location in “Goldilocks” coverage and capacity zone offers reduced OpEx through the lower mid-band propagation characteristics
Licensed, Dedicated Use

Licensed, Dedicated Use

Licensed mid-band spectrum in Band 105 enables efficient wide-area broadband coverage, providing a superior option for organizations looking to deploy Private Networks. Companies in the utilities and critical infrastructure industry sector that establish wireless networks based on these frequencies depend on high levels of network availability and reliability. This exclusive-use spectrum can serve an enterprise’s objectives in areas ranging from a single facility to a multi-state service area

  • Ubiquitous, nationwide, geographic coverage
  • No clearing required (greenfield spectrum, available now for localized leasing)
  • Licensed, dedicated use solution tailored to your organization’s geographic scope of operations
    • Ideal for the highest possible levels of network quality and scalability– future proof with 5G spectrum
  • Time Division Duplex “TDD” spectrum allows both uplink and downlink in the same 5MHz frequency band. Users may adjust timing ratio to optimize for more uplink traffic, such as in sensor monitoring and control situations, or for more downlink centric traffic, e.g. in content streaming applications
Low Latency

Low Latency

Band 105 4G/5G systems are designed for mobile broadband providers to support very low latency that certain applications require, including for network protection, synchrophasors, and interruption of current to falling conductors.

Key Band 105 Spectrum Attributes

Key Band 105 Spectrum Attributes

  • Nationwide licensed spectrum that is greenfield and available for dedicated use
  • Cleared spectrum, which increases speed-to-market and 4G/5G deployment economics
  • Coverage and capacity optimization due to location in the lower mid-band spectrum range
  • Licensed spectrum to support a scalable quality network and high performance that decrease total cost of ownership
  • Support for highly efficient and flexible TDD operation of industrial and private network systems
Advantages Compared to Other Spectrum Bands

Advantages Compared to Other Spectrum Bands

  • Immediate spectrum availability with no need to clear existing users
  • Future proof networks with spectrum that has a path for 4G & 5G standardization with 3GPP.
  • Option to combine with systems using higher mid-band spectrum, such as CBRS, increasing cell-site size, reducing deployment costs, and increasing capacity
