At RippleLink, we specialize in designing and delivering CBRS Private LTE networks. We start with a consultative process to understand your unique coverage and network requirements. Our team will then work with you to develop the right design and end-to-end integration services needed to deploy your CBRS Private LTE network. Our engineers leverage the latest advanced 4G and 5G Private LTE wireless planning tools to model Private LTE coverage for indoor and outdoor locations. Whether you need assistance in deploying Private LTE network devices, connecting your local network to your new Private LTE system, registering your Private LTE devices with the Spectrum Access System, onsite RF coverage and capacity validation or managed services, we offer a host of solutions to guarantee a successful Private LTE deployment.

Questions about what you can do with CBRS?
Private LTE on the CBRS network (spectrum from 3.55 GHz – 3.7 GHz) leverages 4G and 5G LTE instead of Wi-Fi as the networking protocol to communicate data wirelessly to devices. LTE can reach much farther than Wi-Fi, and will deliver better performance, reliability, and security then a traditional wireless network. Today, the latest generation of mobile devices, laptops and tablets are CBRS capable, or will be in their next version. There are many options available to connect non-capable CBRS devices to a CBRS bridge device to provide Private LTE connectivity. Soon everything from your Apple mobile phone to a Zebra mobile scanner, to an IOT device used in a manufacturing plant will be CBRS capable and powered by Private 5G LTE.
Step 1: Deploy your CBRS wireless access points (called an eNodeB) either indoors or outdoors. We recommend a Predictive Design to model coverage for each eNodeB and to ensure redundant coverage. Each Indoor eNodeB can cover up to 25,000 SQFT, an outdoor AP can cover many miles depending on terrain and choice of eNodeB antenna.
Step 2: Connect your CBRS eNodeB to your network and the Spectrum Access System (SAS). You will need to have a certified professional installer (CPI) to connect the eNodeB to the SAS – we can help you with this process. The SAS ensures there is no interference between you and other nearby CBRS networks and that your network will operate interference free.
Step 3: Provision your CBRS capable laptop, tablet, mobile or IOT devices to your CBRS Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The EPC is the software that allows you to connect any device to your network with a SIM or eSIM. The EPC has many functions including device authentication, and setting security and network traffic policies – we can help here too!
You can build a CBRS network anywhere, and the size of the network can be vast compared to traditional Wi-Fi networks. CBRS uses a central cloud-based system called the Spectrum Access System (SAS) to geolocate each CBRS Access Point and ensure that nearby CBRS networks operate on a different channel. If you build your network within a few miles of a coastline (Atlanta, Pacific or Gulf) or near a military or Federal government facility, there might be some limitations on how many outdoor channels are available however, this will generally not affect indoor CBRS networks. Some of the CBRS channels are reserved for the Federal government and military in these locations, and some of the channels in specific geographies may be reserved by organization who purchased channels with an intent to use them. Since the SAS allows us to see what channels are available, we can check to determine how many channels are available in your geography. The bottom line is CBRS is available and ready for your unique use-case.
