Anterix owns the licenses for 900 MHz spectrum used by electric utilities and others to deploy private LTE broadband networks used for smart grid and other purposes. The firm recently saw the culmination of a five-year FCC rulemaking that set the rules for the use of the spectrum for utilities and Anterix President Rob Schwartz told Smart Grid Today about:

  • The history and the benefits this spectrum offers;
  • Why utilities want to deploy private broadband networks using these cell-phone standards;
  • How several utilities already deployed pilots of it including Ameren, Florida Power & Light, New York Power Authority, and
  • How Southern Company was the first to roll it out in earnest.
