If you have a CBRS LTE network to build, given requirements on facility characteristics, device density and application performance, Celona's Network Planner can help figure out how many indoor and outdoor access points (AP) you might need. But then again, all of us have to answer the simple question: what's the performance of a wireless AP?

Summary below highlights the expected total data rate for a CBRS based LTE AP, assuming several generic CBRS capable client devices are on the other end of the wireless connection. It is assumed that the AP comes with two radios, each capable of operating on a separate 20MHz channel within the CBRS spectrum.

Download speeds per AP with at least one client device active:

  • Peak speed: 188Mbps
  • Estimated average across different environments: 112Mbps

Upload speeds per AP with more than one client device active:

  • Peak speed: 28Mbps
  • Estimated average across different environments: 17Mbps

If you are also looking for a similar set of practical information on coverage metrics for a CBRS LTE access point, make sure to read our article on the topic. And if you are curious to see what you should expect for the total capacity of a CBRS based LTE network, check out our summary for two scenarios - one for indoor and another for outdoor.
