In this episode of the Field Journal, we’re comparing CBRS and Wi-Fi to find out which technology offers higher degree of reliability for enterprise wireless.


Check out Episode 17 of Field Journal to get answers to questions like…

  • How does CBRS compare to Wi-Fi in terms of reliability and speed?
  • Does Wi-Fi scale as well as private LTE?
  • How is QoS handled differently in CBRS than in Wi-Fi?

Key Takeaways

  • By design, CBRS based private LTE wireless schedules and controls all the traffic transmissions across clients and access points within the wireless medium. This is in contrast to Wi-Fi which usually requires all clients to “fight for” access to transmit.
  • CBRS LTE access points coordinate traffic flows with each other and avoid interference, and help maintain device specific speed and latency requirements.
  • Even Wi-Fi 6 can struggle with traffic collision issues, channel interference, and congestion management, especially within large scale deployments.
  • Celona MicroSlicing allows for granular application level performance enforcement, based on the individual service level agreement (SLA) requirements for an enterprise application and/or a device group.
