NetAmerica Alliance and GetLisa Information Systems are cooperating to define and deliver value added solutions to mobile broadband users in rural America. The cooperation agreement is an example of NetAmerica’s commitment to building an ecosystem for its participant members and to leveraging that ecosystem as they roll out 4G LTE service. (For more, see How NetAmerica Is Stitching Together A U.S. LTE Network).
GetLisa provides a number of current NetAmerica Alliance participants with messaging solutions, local content and other applications for their 3G networks today which will need to be migrated to a 4G LTE environment and ultimately integrated with an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core operated by NetAmerica. With clients in common, and a shared vision for mobile services in rural America, both companies agreed that cooperating on migrating existing solutions to a 4G LTE world and cooperating on new services over time makes sense.
