SAS Release Notes

  1. Sunsetting of Part 90Z License operation means more spectrum for CBRS

    November 2022

    CBSDs can now operate in the 3650–3700 MHz portion of the CBRS band in the 150 km area around fixed-satellite service (FSS) receive-only earth stations. Operations allowed based on aggregate interference The 150 km area around each FSS for 3650-3700 MHz that was considered an exclusion zone is now a protection zone. This means grant requests in 3650-3700 MHz previously receiving a code 400 (Interference) can now be approved. Tip: Appropriate EIRP is required for grant approval.

  13. Changes in Google SAS response

    May 6, 2020

    Check CBSD interoperability Heartbeat interval changes to 60 seconds The heartbeatInterval recommended by the Google SAS has changed from 200 seconds to 60 seconds. A shorter heartbeat interval gives the CBSD more time to recover from a suspended grant or connectivity issue before it needs to stop transmission. We recommend you set the timeout for heartbeat response to 30 seconds. The CBSD should send another heartbeat request if it didn't receive a heartbeat response from the SAS after 30 seconds. Maximum batch request is now 120 Google SAS now processes single batch requests with up to 120 C…
