About Vanu, Inc.

Vanu, Inc. (www.vanu.com) is the developer of the Anywave Base Station, the first U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-certified software radio. The Anywave Base Station provides significant advantages over traditional equipment designs including: simultaneous operation of multiple wireless standards on a single platform; the use of general purpose, open standard servers rather than proprietary hardware; remote software downloads to add system capacity and migrate to future standards; decreased backhaul costs; and a full range of additional capital and operating cost savings. These benefits come from implementing the high-speed signal processing functions of the base station as a portable software application running on Linux, eliminating the need for specialized signal processing hardware.
