Foundations for Transformation
Public Utilities Fortnightly is publishing its very first extra edition. The breaking news will have such an enormous impact on utilities that this edition’s immediacy and singular focus is, in our opinion, well-deserved. Read Public Utility Fortnightly’s exclusive interviews with FCC Chair Pai, NARUC President Presley, Southern Co. CEO Fanning, U.S. Senator Warner, and former FCC and California Commissioner Chong. Also see exclusive video discussions with FCC Chair Pai, NARUC President Presley, and Southern Co. EVP-Operations Stan Connally.
Recently I participated in a webinar, Harness the Power of Private LTE Networks for Utilities. It examined why utilities are increasingly considering building their own private Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks. Specifically, we explored how these networks enable utilities to reduce costs while improving connectivity with both their grid assets and their workforce.
Anterix and NREL’s study on Private LTE Communications was featured in the Energy Systems Integration Facility’s (ESIF’S) 2019 book documenting their Grid Modernization Initiative.
Utility-grade broadband requires private networks. Wireless broadband networks require spectrum, infrastructure, and technology. Spectrum in the 900 MHz band is perfect for utility broadband.

Why the Utility Industry and Regulators Must Come Together in Support of Interoperable, Future-Proof Smart Grid Networks.
Commercial networks are designed to meet a particular business model focused on serving the mass market; utility networks must be more reliable and more resilient.
Anterix’s SVP of Technology, Mike Brozek, discusses our work with the DoE’s NREL in utilizing Private LTE to enable ADMS for tomorrow’s grid.
