In partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Anterix has completed phase one of an ongoing project showing that 900 MHz private LTE networks can enhance the resilience of next-generation distribution systems.

Leveraging Anterix’s 900 MHz spectrum, NREL demonstrated increased reliability for distributed generation systems, such as solar and wind, using private LTE communications. The results show the potential for private LTE networks to effectively transmit control information without interruption or delay, regardless of usage level or other congestion conditions, says Anterix.
