The Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) introduces dynamic spectrum sharing and ranges from 3550-3700 MHz. CBRS is governed by a three-tiered spectrum authorization framework: Incumbents (Federal Radar Location Systems, VIP users), Priority Access Licenses (PALs) and General Authorized Access (GAA). Access and operations to CBRS are managed by a dynamic spectrum access system (SAS).
In September 2020, Select Spectrum announced an innovative new web platform, which will streamline transactions for PAL licenses for prospective users. The platform, CBRS Direct, is planned to launch in early 2021, and will support partitioning and disaggregation of licenses.
Coming Q1 2021
The CBRS Direct web platform will act a neutral host, providing open access to users of all types with the option to utilize a broker of choice, or no broker at all. As the leading secondary market broker for licensed spectrum, Select Spectrum plans to offer PAL brokerage services on CBRS Direct to parties that are seeking professional consultation on pricing guidance, PAL listing and negotiation services, GIS expertise, marketing and promotion to buyers, etc.
Please inquire for more information on CBRS Direct, PAL availability in your areas of interest, or with general questions on the CBRS band.
