Preferred partner for broadband NETWORKS & SERVICES  

that enable people, communities & businesses to flourish

LEVERAGING UNLICENSED AND LIGHTLY LICENSED SPECTRUM 

  • In order to drive broadband adoption in rural America and to make additional spectrum available for 5G, the FCC has made regulatory changes to spectrum policy and has allocated spectrum in 3.5 GHz (CBRS - Citizens Broadband Radio Service, Band 48) and 2.5 GHz (Education Broadband Service) bands for unlicensed/lightly licensed use.
     

  • Up to 150 MHz (and a minimum of 80 MHz) of CBRS spectrum is allocated for shared General Authorized Access, and 70 MHz is available via a Priority Access License. Availability of such spectrum is lowering the barrier to entry and is enabling new players such as NODABL to compete with established wireless carriers and cable operators in offering fixed wireless to underserved communities, and private 4G/5G broadband services to enterprises.
     

  • NODABL is technology agnostic and offers its customers comprehensive, custom-designed carrier grade broadband network services using novel and cost-effective solution architectures.

PRIVATE BROADBAND NETWORKS FOR ENTERPRISES 

  • Enterprises have traditionally depended on WiFi for onsite wireless connectivity. Due to security, mobility, and Quality of Service limitations, WiFi is not ideal for business-critical voice, data, and video applications. Private 4G and 5G networks using unlicensed and licensed spectrums can simultaneously support a wide range of narrowband, broadband, and Internet of Things applications.
     

  • Private networks give enterprises full control of data, applications, and devices that can access the network, and all data and applications stay contained within the enterprise firewall. Such private networks are relatively easy to design and install and can be professionally managed remotely by NODABL or our solution partners. The number of consumer devices with CBRS Band 48 are growing, and by 2021 most wireless devices will have the CBRS band enabled.
     

  • Private networks can be offered as a “managed service.” In this Network as a Service (NaaS) model, small and large enterprises are not burdened with high upfront CAPEX but rather have a predictable annual OPEX. NaaS allows an enterprise to start small with a limited set of applications and then add network capability and applications as the enterprise’s needs grow.

FIXED WIRELESS BROADBAND FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES 

  • While nationwide carriers are racing to deploy 5G in dense urban population centers, much of rural America is a broadband desert with downlink speeds less than 10 Mbps and uplink speeds less than 1 Mbps. Availability of CBRS and EBS spectrums combined with novel solution architectures make cost-effectively delivery of downlink speeds between 30 to 90 Mbps possible in rural communities.
     

  • Rural broadband deployment based on a single-layer, WiFi-like architecture allows NODABL to leapfrog legacy technologies such as ADSL, HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coax), and FTTH (Fiber to the Home), and cost-effectively provide wireless internet/broadband services to underserved communities.
     

  • NODABL’s focus is to deploy rural broadband networks starting with rural counties in Texas and then expand across the country. Deployment in rural Texas is aided by a pole sharing agreement NODABL has executed with a large electricity distribution utility.
