- Major carriers preparing to roll out 5G wireless upgrades in the coming months
- Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings technology suited to sustain telecommunications needs of Tier 2, Tier 3 communities
- 1stPoint Communications acquisition creates triple play, mobile-to-mobile opportunities
As the world prepares for next-generation 5G wireless cell service (http://ibn.fm/NTyiv), telecommunications company Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: HMMR) is building its efforts to grow its New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania base of operations into a national program that will provide service on a neighborhood-access basis. The company is aligning itself with like-minded businesses as it works to deliver low-cost, high-capacity broadband to phone, Internet and television service markets across the country.
The company plans to begin live field testing of its new “pre-5G” system this year to coincide with the earliest rollout of the transformational 5G technology in select parts of the United States, with commercial service to follow in the coming months. The 5G technology will enable far faster data transmission and buffering than 4G LTE, as consumers worldwide upgrade mobile-access devices and local governments move to smaller, shorter-range signal distribution systems (http://ibn.fm/ATZau).
Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings, doing business as Hammer Communications, recently launched its 5G-ready Hammer Wireless AIR point-to-multipoint system to increase the options available to customers and to improve service in rural areas. The May 17 announcement of its Mobile Network Services Provider program in tandem with 1stPoint Communications will allow phone-Internet-TV triple play services, as well as Smart City and mobile-to-mobile capabilities on the same network platform with an “everything wireless” philosophy for geographical regions (http://ibn.fm/iEX2J). Wireless networks are driving the transformation of the overall telecommunications industry as services continue to converge under one platform, with cable TV operators entering wireless network agreements through incumbent carriers, telecom operators entering pay-TV streaming services and a wide array of corporations making big-ticket acquisitions that create media powerhouses (http://ibn.fm/JR9nz).
“This is the beginning of the transformation of Hammer Communications,” Mark Stogdill, Hammer’s founder, stated in the news release announcing the MNSP program. “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.”
Kristen Vasicek, director of marketing for 1stPoint, added, “Following on Hammer’s successful deployment in Atlantic County (New Jersey) we have the template for the deployment anywhere nationwide or even globally.”
NetworkNewsWire, a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, published an editorial on the company on May 24 that comments, “Hammer’s AIR System is now looking to many industry analysts like it may be the ideal solution for everything from bridging the digital divide in underserved rural communities to addressing increasingly abundant data roaming opportunities and M2M concerns. This innovative, patented technology represents what could be a major advantage for the company, as no one in the industry today offers what Hammer is already doing” (http://ibn.fm/SHQwz).
Hammer’s proposed acquisition of 1stPoint and its subsidiaries would give the company the benefit of exclusive rights to the patented AIR wireless technology, as well as to 1stPoint’s switching technology, its underlying competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) and its Commercial Mobile Radio Services operator.
The advent of fixed wireless technology continues to breed new technologies in the internet of things industry, and the entry of 5G speeds is expected to sustain advances for self-driving cars, smart homes and increasingly sophisticated robots. For now, Hammer’s primary excitement centers on its potential to boost services in smaller Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets, where competitive-cost service diversity may not exist.
