NetAmerica Alliance and GetLisa Information Systems Announce Cooperation Agreement
NetAmerica Continues To Expand Ecosystem
Dallas, TX (September 16, 2011) – NetAmerica Alliance, LLC and GetLisa Information Systems today announced a cooperation agreement targeted at defining and delivering 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.
GetLisa provides a number of current NetAmerica Alliance members with messaging solutions, rich 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.
“GetLisa Information Systems has a great reputation with existing NetAmerica participant members,” said Roger Hutton, Chairman and CEO of NetAmerica. “One of the benefits of being part of the alliance is to participate in our growing ecosystem and we are committed to building a powerful ecosystem for our members. Our cooperation agreement with GetLisa is an example of NetAmerica delivering on that commitment.”
“We are very pleased to be working with NetAmerica,” said George Woodward, CEO of GetLisa Information Systems. “We are excited to not only work with them on migrating our current solutions to a 4G LTE network but to jointly defining and delivering new services as part of their ecosystem. GetLisa will help provide a differentiator for NetAmerica Alliance Partners with compelling local and national content, shortcodes and apps.”
NetAmerica has joined forces with rural independent license holders, that are deploying converged 4G wireless/wireline networks, to provide business and network services including combined buying power, nationwide branding, 24/7 network monitoring, 4G core network elements, applications development and other key services needed to build the converged network of the future.
The partnership with NetAmerica Alliance is another step in GetLisa’s overall Get Smart mobile strategy, which leverages the company’s thought leadership positions in the mobile space, ranging from data services to mobile content like ringtones and shortcodes to smartphone applications.
