We are TalkingHeads Wireless

And we’re on a mission to unlock energy savings for cellular networks. So far, it seems to be working.

Unlocking Energy Savings

Years ago, Joel, John and Will had an idea. Having worked for decades creating innovations in the wireless industry at companies like Nokia, Telefonica, and Bell Labs they saw two converging trends. First, the advent of 5G meant towers were tasked to transmit more and more data than ever. Second, the rise of energy usage mapped 1:1 to the rise in data transmission resulting in astronomically growing cost increases for carriers.

Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: The energy use of wireless towers is too big and expensive.

To solve the problem, the trio recruited some of the leading minds in the world in data, networking and energy. They soon realized software alone wouldn’t cut it. It’s why the best software only solutions move the needle by a measly 10%. To solve the problem, to really move the needle, what they needed to do was to radically redesign hardware. And what if it was as easy to install, monitor and maintain as a Nest is at home?

TalkingHeads Wireless was born.

We are on a mission to create an alternative. By redesigning hardware from the ground up, we’re able to help wireless carriers lower the energy costs of their network towers in half.

We’re Just Getting Started

We are partnering with leading networks to deploy our Smart Tower technology.
