LocaLoop and Runcom Unlock Affordable 4G Broadband Internet for Rural Markets

4G World 2011

ST. PAUL, Minn.--()--LocaLoop, Inc. announces availability of the broadband industry’s first turn-key 4G solution specifically designed to deliver affordable industry-standard mobile and fixed broadband Internet service to rural and remote users.

“Today we are making good on that promise.”

In collaboration with Israeli-based Runcom Technologies, Ltd., LocaLoop developed the solution based on its patented cloud technology platform, LocaLoopNet™ and Runcom’s leading-edge standard 4G hardware products. Runcom’s hardware is specifically adapted to low density markets and fine tuned to work seamlessly with LocaLoop’s virtualized SaaS platform.

The two companies are introducing the solution at 4G World in Chicago October 24-27, (Booth Number 1334).

Conventional wisdom has long held that delivering mobile broadband Internet outside of dense population areas is too costly to implement and deliver, which is no longer true. LocaLoop’s patented cloud based platform leapfrogs the legacy on-premises OSS/BSS systems incumbent wireless carriers typically use today for a fraction of the cost and eliminates the need for a local NOC.

LocaLoop and Runcom developed this 4G solution as a result of the global Strategic Marketing and Technology Agreement the two companies announced last March.

“Six months ago LocaLoop and Runcom came together to create a profitable turn-key 4G solution for rural service providers,” said Carl-Johan Torarp LocaLoop founder and CEO. “Today we are making good on that promise.”

“Our products are engineered to meet industry standards with a level of quality that has established Runcom as an innovative industry leader in the global wireless broadband industry,” said Moshe Levinson, Runcom Technologies CEO. “Working with LocaLoop, we have adapted our hardware specifically to deliver 4G WiMAX broadband service economically in low density areas.”
