I have a question about using CBRS class B devices for Fixed Wireless Internet over LTE. I’m new to this.
I understand that SAS registration allows transmitting at high power. But the device as initially installed will be on low power (class A level) and it must first connect to the network before a registration and grant can be obtained. Thus the radio installation must be within transmission range of the tower to connect at low power. Also there will be times when the SAS forces a GAA device to go down to low power, so it has to be installed in range anyway.
So it seems that SAS registration does not increase the effective service area as the radio must be functional at low power. I’m told that at cell edge the higher transmit power may increase the available upload bandwidth. Is that true and is that the only benefit for Internet use? Would there be any benefit to registering service locations that are nearer the tower? Assume GAA priority only.
Thanks for any info.
