Federated Wireless's potential market opportunity expands - additional 100 megahertz of key mid-band spectrum unlocked for commercial deployment
Allied Minds plc (LSE: ALM, "the Group"), the IP commercialisation company focused on early stage company development within the technology sector, highlights the announcement by the White House and Department of Defense (DoD) that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum in the 3.45-3.55 GHz band will be made available for commercial 5G deployment using a spectrum sharing framework.
Similar to Citizens Broadband Radio Systems (CBRS), the 3.45-3.55 GHz band is currently used for critical radar operations by the DoD.
Allied Minds's portfolio company, Federated Wireless, is a key player in developing shared spectrum CBRS capabilities, which has a wide range of users and applications, including fixed wireless and Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS), that has the ability to grow with increased spectrum opportunity.
Making the 3.45-3.55 GHz band available for commercial use demonstrates confidence in the shared spectrum model and its application to other critically important spectrum. This will allow for increased 5G quality and speed necessary to support continued innovation, technology advancements, and expanding access throughout the US.
Federated Wireless, as a leader in enabling and opitimising allocation of shared spectrum, is uniquely positioned to support this incremental band with algorithms, standard product development, and improved sensor capabilities. It will seek to play a critical role in enabling access to this newly available spectrum.
Joe Pignato, CEO of Allied Minds, said:
"This notable development provides more potential opportunities for Federated Wireless and follows a number of equally stand out partner agreements signed this year. 2020 is proving to be a breakthrough year for the business."
