Municipalities and organizations interested in bridging the digital divide have multiple solution options to increase community access to the internet. Since Wi-Fi access points, Citizen Broadband Radio Services (CBRS), and LTE all have benefits, how should organizations determine the best solution for their use case? Why choose CBRS if you can deploy a few more Wi-Fi access points?

In this short clip from a recent LinkedIn Live discussion, CDCT experts Jason Rader, Mike Parmeley, and Mike Moore discuss how factors about each use case, such as geographic area and range, terrain, security concerns, latency requirements, cost models, and feasibility planning should drive decision making. By evaluating the specific requirements of each use case against the strengths and limitations of each solution, organizations can deploy the right solution to meet their goals.
