Adapting Mobile Devices to Private LTE/CBRS Networks

The potential for many new dedicated secure and private LTE/CBRS networks is on the rise. An important question is: how will commercially available mobile devices connect on these networks?

Three elements are needed for a private LTE network:

The business case for 5G fixed wireless access.

5G fixed wireless access business case

Alphabet subsidiary Google Fiber, part of one of the largest, most lucrative, well-funded, technologically advanced companies in human history, had grand plans for deploying fiber-to-the-home and offering consumers gigabit per second broadband as well as a television offering when it started in 2010. After an ambitious expansion plan gave way to very slow deployment and activations in early markets, the company scaled back and put a pause on new market entries to regroup.
