Two innovative leaders in wireless broadband and mobile Internet technologies are joining forces to implement a turn-key solution for rural service providers, delivering mobile and fixed 4G broadband Internet services to millions of underserved rural businesses and households.
LocaLoop, Inc., a Minnesota-based Internet software technology company and Wireless Connections, an Ohio-based wireless network planning, installation and implementation consultant, announced they have formed a partnership. Under the agreement, LocaLoop will sell its Cloud-Driven 4G Turnkey Business Solution to rural communications service providers while Wireless Connections becomes the professional services arm providing operational services for LocaLoop.
Under terms of agreement, LocaLoop will lead sales and marketing efforts with its patented 4G business solution platform and its co-branded “synKro” web presence for both the operator and its subscribers. The turnkey solution includes maintenance, upgrades and first level network support. Wireless Connections services include network capacity, RF planning, hardware consulting, installation technical and second level network support.
“Today’s announcement is much more than a marketing and services agreement,” said Carl-Johan Torarp LocaLoop founder and CEO. “LocaLoop’s ‘pay as you grow’ business and network management software on top of leading edge 4G network hardware is bundled in a turnkey solution. Wireless Connection’s expertise and reputation as a leader in design and implementation of wireless networks creates a powerful team. We see this relationship accelerating our growth in rural and underserved markets.”
“The alliance with LocaLoop complements our established expertise in broadband wireless solutions across multiple markets,” said Mike Cowan, President of Wireless Connections. “Their patented software as a service solution for rural service providers is a natural fit with Wireless Connections. Together we are able to deliver a powerful combination of a complete 4G business platform and operational capability needed for fast implementation and profitable revenue growth in rural markets.”
