pdvWireless is now Anterix and we’re architecting a new foundation for critical infrastructure
Anterix stems from the Latin word for architectural elements that provide strength and foundational support.
New name. New mission.
As the new name suggests, Anterix is building the foundation for a new technology landscape. Our mission is to deliver the transformative broadband needed to enable the modernization of critical infrastructure for energy, transportation, logistics and other industries.
As the nation’s largest holder of licensed and contiguous 900MHz spectrum in the United States, we are uniquely positioned to deliver solutions that support secure, resilient and customer-controlled operations.
The real game-changers.
The real foundation for our success goes far beyond our technology, patents, or even broadband resources. At Anterix, we believe our people are the real game-changers. As architects of a new vision that sees digital transformation paving the way for critical infrastructure modernization, we know that our thought leaders will be the ones innovating and driving change—real change. We are doers, thinkers, movers and shakers, and going forward, a voice to be reckoned with.
We will combine our deep industry expertise and operational know-how to deliver solutions that will redefine what’s possible for the industries and utilities we serve. We will deliver at the highest level and build on the pioneering legacy and success that pdvWireless brought to workforce communications.
A legacy of innovation
The people that brought you Nextel Communications and pdvWireless, now bring you the future of digital transformation. Anterix was originally founded as pdvWireless in 2004 with leadership by Brian McAuley and Morgan O'Brien, also co-founders of Nextel Communications. They have over 60 years of combined experience in telecom operations and in successfully developing regulatory driven spectrum initiatives to address the unmet wireless communications needs of businesses. Currently, Brian is Chairman Emeritus, Morgan is the Executive Chairman of the Board, and Rob Schwartz is the President & CEO.
In September 2014 pdvWireless acquired Sprint Corporation’s 900 MHz spectrum, which had been used to operate Nextel’s iDEN network. With this purchase, pdvWireless became the largest holder of licensed and contiguous 900MHz spectrum which provides the optimal balance of capacity and coverage for wide area deployments and licensed Private LTE networks.
Anterix enables critical infrastructure and enterprise to transform their businesses through the power of private wireless broadband connectivity on 900 MHz spectrum. Our foundational spectrum allows for greater risk mitigation with increased cyber security, resiliency and control. We are the largest holder of licensed spectrum in the 900 MHz band, with nationwide coverage throughout the contiguous United States, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico. Anterix has obtained approval by the Federal Communications Commission to modernize and realign the 900 MHz band so it can be used to deploy broadband networks, technologies and solutions.
Foundation. Support. Strength.
