Vanu, Inc. creates solutions for places that do not have good coverage today. Every operator would like to color in the whole coverage map.  The only reason they do not is that current technology does not make it cost effective to provide coverage in many areas such as inside of buildings, in rural areas, in tunnels, and on ships.  Vanu solutions combine technology and business model innovation to reduce the total cost of ownership of wireless networks.

The company grew out of groundbreaking research in software radio at MIT and was founded in 1998. Vanu is the developer of the Anywave® Base Station. Anywave was the first commercial Radio Access Network (RAN) product to simultaneously support multiple cellular radio standards on the same platform and the first U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-certified software defined radio.

Vanu is headquartered in Lexington, MA, with two offices in India located in Gurgaon and Bangalore, as well an office in Kigali, Rwanda.
