LocaLoop and Runcom bring profitable turn-key 4G platform to rural market WISPs
Partnership combines cloud-based business platform and leading 4G WiMAX equipment
Covington, KY, April 1, 2013 – Two leading internet and communications technology innovators are showcasing their unique solution to bring industry standard 4G WiMAX/LTE Mobile and Wireless Broadband Internet service to underserved rural markets.
Appearing together at the WISPAmerica 2013 Conference, Minnesota-based LocaLoop, Inc. an Internet software technology company focused on affordable wireless broadband Internet services in rural communities joined with Israeli-based Runcom Technologies, a developer of leading 4G Broadband communications products and services.
The two companies will be demonstrating their technologies at booth #318 during WISPAmerica (Wireless Internet Service Providers ) and presenting at 5:30PM Tuesday, April 2nd.
The two companies formed a strategic alliance in 2011 combining Localoop’s patented cloud-based business platform with Runcom’s advanced 4G WiMAX equipment. LocaLoop provides a ‘pay-as-you- grow’ network and business management software platform that differs from centralized and costly systems traditionally deployed in high-density urban markets. As LocaLoop’s preferred network equipment supplier, Runcom has adapted its leading 4G network hardware to improve the economics in low density markets.
“We deliver a turn-key business solution, including marketing capability specifically designed for low-density markets, providing WISPs with a profitable platform not available before,” explained LocaLoop founder and CEO Carl-Johan Torarp.
“LocaLoop’s software and Runcom’s hardware complement one another perfectly, delivering a powerful 4G business solution that we could not achieve individually,” said Moshe Levinson, Runcom Technologies CEO.
LocaLoop, Inc. is the first cloud 4G service provider in America created exclusively for the advancement, management and deployment of affordable wireless broadband Internet services in rural and underserved communities. LocaLoop’s patented 4G cloud technology provides a profitable business platform in partnership with local providers while delivering an optimized broadband Internet user experience.
