Alpha Wireless Helping to Foster the Future of Private Wireless Broadband with Innovative 900 MHz and Dual-Band Antenna Solutions
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — October 12, 2021 — Alpha Wireless, a global leader in antenna solutions, today announced the company has joined the recently established Anterix Active Ecosystem Program. In collaboration with Anterix and their partners, Alpha Wireless is advancing deployment and operation of private LTE networks in Anterix’s 900 MHz spectrum, enabling smarter, more secure critical infrastructure.
With spectrum in the 900 MHz band now available for broadband, many utilities are exploring the possibilities of advanced communications for modernizing their grids and optimizing operations. Low-band LTE networks are ideally suited to real-time monitoring and active control of energy distribution systems, allowing increased scalability, performance and efficiency. Moreover, private networks provide additional security against mounting cyber-attacks threatening critical infrastructure throughout the U.S.
Alpha Wireless is supporting the goals of the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program with delivery of industry-leading, high-gain antennas operating in the 900 MHz band, as well as dual-band antennas that support both 900 MHz and Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum on a single antenna. With the broadest range of antenna technology available, including 3.5 GHz / 900 MHz antennas as well as engineered site specific solutions, Alpha Wireless is uniquely positioned to meet the technical requirements of private LTE deployments and rural broadband initiatives, reducing the costs of provisioning while increasing performance.
“Private LTE and 5G networks represent a pivotal opportunity to shape a new technology landscape for smarter and more secure communications,” said Fergal Lawlor, Chief Executive Officer, Alpha Wireless. “Working in partnership with Anterix and their ecosystem initiative, we are bringing the performance of carrier-grade antennas to a broad range of utilities, service providers, municipalities and enterprises that can reap significant benefits from operating private networks in the 900 MHz spectrum.”
“At Anterix, we are focused on delivering transformative broadband that enables the modernization of our nation’s electric grid with secure, resilient and customer-controlled operations,” said Carlos L’Abbate, Chief Technology and Engineering Officer, Anterix. “We welcome the collaboration of Alpha Wireless to help us develop and provide the vital wireless solutions that will shape the future of private LTE broadband.”
