The CBRS spectrum is a test case in spectrum sharing because the FCC designated the CBRS band, which refers to 150 MHz of spectrum in the 3550 MHz to 3700 MHz range, for sharing among incumbent users, priority access license users and general authorized access users. The industry is divided on whether this shared model was a success or a failure. Some claim that very few companies with CBRS PAL licenses are actually using this spectrum, while others say that this shared model is a prime example of how to best make use of a finite resource. This panel will look at both sides of this debate and discuss the benefits and drawbacks to shared spectrum. Can the shared spectrum model be improved? How does technology evolution factor into this debate?
