ExteNet Systems, a provider of Distributed Network Systems (DNS), has announced the deployment of a Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Part 96-ready LTE network with Cal.net, a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) based in Shingle Springs, California, the company said.
Cal.net provides broadband Internet services to rural communities in the Sierra Nevada foothills ranging from the northeast to the southeast of Sacramento.
ExteNet and Cal.net´s CBRS Part 96-ready LTE fixed wireless access (FWA) network will be among the first networks in the 3550-3700 MHz band. CBRS Part 96-ready networks will, in the near term, advance in-building and outdoor broadband wireless deployment in the industry as a multitude of WISPs and other providers will transition from proprietary FWA technology to standards-based LTE fixed wireless service on CBRS.
