Piscataway, New Jersey, UNITED STATES

PISCATAWAY, N.J., July 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChannelVision Magazine has awarded Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings Corp’s (OTCQB: HMMR) subsidiary, 1stPoint Communications, the 2019 Visionary Spotlight award for Enterprise Technology in Unified Communications. The 1P Collaboration Suite integrates voice, video and messaging (including email, chat and SMS) into a single turnkey platform where subscribers can create multi-way video conference across continents with the ease of pressing a few buttons on their smart phone. “OTT is an important part of our Everything Wireless strategy,” said Kristen Vasicek, Hammer’s COO, who is responsible for the marketing platform behind the 1P Collaboration Suite as well as ongoing product development. “As we build out fixed wireless networks in Sierra Leone, the Caribbean, Alabama and other markets in the United States and West Africa our subscribers not only need bandwidth, but also critical communications services like voice, video and texting.”

Hammer’s ‘Everything Wireless’ strategy has four pillars: high speed fixed wireless, mobility, Over-the-Top technology and Smart City. “We are very excited to win this award,” said Erik Levitt, Hammer’s CEO. “The channel is an important source of leads for Hammer in the long term, particularly in markets like Huntsville, Alabama and recognition of our capabilities is key to maintaining confidence in our services. We thank ChannelVision for their consideration.”

Hammer continues to expand its messaging footprint, having recently completed several interconnections to Tier One international carriers. Powered by its subsidiaries, which includes a US based mobile network operator, Hammer can rapidly grow its OTT network. International two-way messaging capabilities now include European countries such as Spain, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Asian markets such as Israel. “Hammer brings greater value to its subscribers by providing more over-the-top services such as voice, texting, video, conferencing and collaboration capabilities. The global citizen will consume those services more as we proceed to build the next generation of networks,” added Vasicek.
