Founded in 2010, XetaWave is the largest independent U.S. manufacturer of wireless software-defined radios (SDRs). We’re the ideal partner for companies
that want to institute industrial automation through the deployment of
high-performance wireless technologies.

XetaWave is comprised of the industry’s best team of sales, engineering, customer service, and manufacturing professionals. Over the last 30 years, XetaWave team members have designed, built, and supported over one million radios across multiple industries worldwide. Our products are proven platforms that lead the industry in performance, functionality, and reliability.


XetaWave is the only company whose SDR products are 100% designed, manufactured, tested, and supported in-house at its headquarters in Louisville, Colorado. Each product is the result of precision engineering and assembly on our state-of-the-art ASM (formerly Siemens) robotic manufacturing line and has been vigorously tested to guarantee functionality over the full operational temperature range of -40° to +75°C.

As a custom RF solution and SDR company, our software engineering team can develop new code as needed to support new frequency bands, new modulation schemes, flexible I/O assignments, and other feature upgrades and additions to meet various deployment requirements.


XetaWave wireless radios are the ideal choice for companies aiming for industrial automation of their facilities, particularly those located in remote or challenging environments. Seamlessly deploy SCADA systems to monitor everything from water treatment plants to oil and gas rigs, execute military command and control, and remotely monitor environmental and facility parameters with XetaWave.

Jonathan SawyeR

founder & Chief Executive Officer/Chief Technology Officer

Jonathan has pushed the limits over a period of three decades in his design and development of new and innovative, industry-changing wireless technologies. He is renowned in his approach for always thinking outside of the box and questioning conventional wisdom. Prior to XetaWave, Jonathan co-founded FreeWave Technologies in 1993. In addition to his responsibilities as CTO, he was Chairman of the Board and co-managed FreeWave. Jonathan designed the very first FHSS products which employed modulation, hopping speeds, and over-the-air protocols which are still considered state of the art to this day. In his 17 years at FreeWave, he designed every radio and grew the company culminating with an investment by TA Associates of $113M in 2007. During the 3 years following the acquisition, Jonathan worked to expand the management and technical team of FreeWave to ensure its continued scalability and growth from its entrepreneurial roots. Prior to FreeWave, in 1986 and as co-founder of Inovonics, Jonathan developed a unique narrow pulse wireless technology to enable low power, unlicensed devices to achieve a range of miles versus feet, a first within the industry. This technology is still in use today. In 2005, Inovonics was sold to Roper Industries for over $45 million. In the late 1980s, while director of hardware engineering for Clinicom, Jonathan pioneered the first WIFI type network at 900 MHz for use in handheld computers within a hospital environment. Jonathan’s 900 MHz technology produced an aggregate bandwidth of over 15MB and extended the range of this technology to allow a single access point to provide wireless coverage across multiple floors within a hospital. During this time, he developed much of the Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technologies and protocols used today. Jonathan received several patents for his work.
