9dot Joins Wireless Internet Service Providers Associations in USA and UK
We are pleased to announce that we have joined Wispa.org and UKWISPA as a partner.
The UK Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (UKWISPA) is the official trade body recognised by UK authorities. Their mission is to promote the interests of the industry and ensure that services provided by members are of the highest standards possible.
Each member of UKWISPA delivers internet access services that meet the highest industry standards so that businesses and consumers can be assured that they will be protected by our high standards for quality and service.
WISPA - Broadband Without Boundaries, represents the interests of the evolving wireless Internet service provider (WISP) ecosystem in US: small innovative entrepreneurs who provide fixed wireless, fiber and other connectivity solutions to consumers, businesses, first responders and community anchor institutions. WISPs bring critical Internet access to millions of Americans in unserved and underserved rural, suburban, urban and Tribal areas of the country, offering reliable, cost-effective and innovative service options where they did not previously exist.
By joining WISPA.org and UKWISPA, we strengthen our position both in the US and in the UK Market, as the specialist in the conception and design of protection systems, monitoring, and control of devices powered by Power Over Ethernet (POE). Our solutions improve and simplify WiSPs’ business thanks to site remote control, synchronization, surge protection and monitoring real-time consumption of every single device.
"We are really enthusiastic to be part of WISPA and UKWISPA, that will be strategic partners to allow the community of American and British WISPs to learn about our valuable solutions "said Francesco Zaccaro, founder and CEO of 9dot. “Provide opportunities for WISPs to interact, learn from, and help each other is the point that struck me the most about Wispa goals.”
As an equipment vendor, we support to run a successful WISP enterprise in cooperation with our Global Distributor Winncom Technologies Corporation.
