ADRF and Anterix Partner to Accelerate 900 MHz In-Building Wireless Deployments.

Fremont, CA: "ADRF, with its powerful ADXV products, is an important addition to the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program," said Carlos L'Abbate, Anterix's Chief Technology Officer. "Our utility customers can benefit from this DAS solution which aims to extend the reach of robust LTE connectivity over Anterix 900 MHz spectrum." 

Advanced RF Technologies, Inc. ("ADRF") is the world's leading provider of in-building wireless solutions for commercial and public cellular connections in venues of any size, shape, or location. ADRF was founded in 1999 in Burbank, California, with a customer-centric focus on building solutions that match each customer's specific needs while also offering a route to future growth.

ADRF has joined the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program to broaden the landscape of 900 MHz LTE products and services for the US power grid. ADRF will first collaborate with Anterix on in-building wireless connection via its flagship ADXV DAS.

Anterix is the biggest licensed spectrum holder in the 900 MHz band (896-901/935-940 MHz) in the mainland United States, as well as Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, and is well-positioned to allow private LTE solutions that support secure, robust and customer-controlled operations. The Anterix Active Ecosystem Program brings together technological innovators to assist Anterix clients with deploying and operating 900 MHz private LTE networks. Members will exchange technical ideas and work together to provide 900 MHz private LTE solutions to the utility industry.

"We're looking forward to working with Anterix to accelerate the deployment and application of in-building wireless solutions for utility, oil refiner, and railroad infrastructure providers that deploy private LTE at 900 MHz," said Julie Song, CEO of Advanced RF Technologies, Inc. "Broadband performance is limited in challenging radio frequency environments with high noise and significant obstructions, which are typical in many industrial facilities. Joining the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program allows ADRF to help address these issues by providing reliable and flexible in-building wireless solutions that lower the total cost of ownership."

The ADXV DAS has been installed in many high-profile locations, including the Bellagio Hotel & Casino, the worldwide headquarters of Raytheon Missile Systems, and all of Memorial Sloan Kettering's important buildings.
