SPRINGFIELD, Va. Versar, Inc. (NYSE Amex:VSR) and Lemko Corporation are pleased to announce a Strategic Partnership to work closely together in offering an all-inclusive, 4G-ready, mobile broadband package for rural U.S. carriers. The solution features Lemko’s Node1TM mobile broadband cellular system and Versar’s construction and management services. The end result is a rapidly deployable, complete turn-key solution that offers rural carriers the lowest cost build-out for under-served and un-served markets. This offering fits easily into the upcoming rural broadband stimulus package and meets the shovel-ready criteria required by the plan.
“This collaboration provides an excellent fit for our strategy of providing one-stop-shopping in order to deliver economical, high speed communications services to rural Americans. With this agreement, we can provide the rural carrier with a complete next-generation voice and data system, including a 4G core network that switches, routes and bills all traffic at every site; avoiding costly backhaul,” says Nicholas Labun, CEO of Lemko.
“The agreement with Lemko will enable Versar to bring its extensive management, engineering and construction resources to the rural American market. With this powerhouse, we can install a robust and fully operating mobile broadband / cellular system in less than 90 days and at a price that dramatically reduces the rural carriers’ current capital and future operating expenditures. Additionally, this extends leading edge services to a market that may barely have cellular coverage, let alone mobile broadband coverage,” said Ted Prociv, Versar’s President and CEO.
