What is CBRS?

CBRS is a band of radio-frequency spectrum from 3.5GHz to 3.7GHz that the Federal Communications Commission has designated for sharing among three tiers of users: incumbent users, priority licensees and generally authorized, which is lightly licensed.

How is CBRS more secure than traditional Wi-Fi?

For end users to connect to CBRS, they must go through an authentication process and because their data is transmitted using CBRS, their data is encrypted, offering a more secure connection. There are many tools available online to be used to compromise Wi-Fi security, but it will take a huge amount of time and resources to break SIM-based security encryption and control being used in cellular technology based LTE networks enabled by Edge Points with CBRS.

How do Edge Points work with SD-WAN?

Edge Points can work with various SD-WAN providers or private line providers to bring specific customer traffic to Alefs’ Edge Point Platform. By leveraging Alef’s Edge Point Platform, you can bring cloud native applications closer to the end user location for processing, thus reducing latency and bandwidth needs.  Another potential benefit could be to leverage Alef’s secure local breakout for internet traffic.

Can you use Cradlepoint devices with Edge Points?

Cradlepoint is a hardware provider that offers devices that support CBRS. Edge Points works with CBRS enabled devices certified by the OnGo Alliance. (CBRS Alliance)

Where are Edge Points available?

Currently, this service is available only in the United States but will be soon available whenever CBRS-like spectrum is available.
