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 2022, and will support partitioning and disaggregation of licenses.
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.
The Lease Net Present Value Calculator is a excel worksheet which determines Net Present Value (NPV), upfront, monthly, and annual increase amounts for a spectrum lease. The worksheet is provided as a tool to assist buyers and/or lessees formulate their offer(s). An organization can input the license information and adjust the price per MHz-POP resulting in the appropriate monthly payment and/or purchase price. A Select Spectrum professional can also send you a completed NPV Spreadsheet for any call signs your organization may have interest in.
