A new CBRS broadband solution was deployed in Montour County, Pennsylvania to bring reliable non-line-of-sight connectivity to the community. In this case study, we explore:
Pennsylvania has seen a surge in the need for telemedicine in the last few months.
As a result, leveraging a working partnership with the county’s flagship rural healthcare provider, Geisinger, became vitally important in mid-March of 2020 – but a weak link in the approach was evident where residents didn’t have home access to internet service.
Deploying a Private LTE Network utilizing the CBRS band was a game changer, allowing for network expansion into more rural, forested areas of Montour County. The initial build out was able to provide carrier-grade service to locations that could not be served by traditional line-of-sight gear.
This case study presents the challenges, solutions, and learnings to deploying BLiNQ’s CBRS certified FW300i.
