Hammer will assist wireless internet service providers and cable operators in second and third tier markets by increasing their subscriber bases quickly. Using patented AIR technology, Hammer can provide high speed wireless triple play service using the DOCSIS and pre-5G standards to residential communities and small businesses. 1stPoint’s technology and operator licenses provide services such as smart city, IoT and M2M on the same network platform.
“Our carrier customers can reduce time to market and use their capital more efficiently by using our network,” said Erik Levitt, CEO of 1stPoint Communications. “In any capital-intensive industry, return on capital is critical and the AIR technology increases the return substantially.”
As it is deployed, the MNSP program will allow for an “everything wireless” approach to a geographical market, covering most of the wireless application needs.
“This is the beginning of the transformation of Hammer Communications,” commented Hammer founder Mark Stogdill. “Our model supports the strategic vision of our management team and Board of Directors. The AIR system is capable of supporting not only a residential access network, but can empower carriers, municipalities and customers to deploy a variety of applications through our network.”
“We are looking forward to announcing our next markets,” said Kristen Vasicek, Director of Marketing for 1stPoint. “Following on Hammer’s successful deployment in Atlantic County we have the template for the deployment anywhere nationwide or even globally.”
