Telefónica International Wholesale Services (TIWS) formed a bilateral SMS messaging interconnection agreement with Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings, a fledgling wireless service provider based in New Jersey, USA. The deal will enable the exchange of person‑to-person messaging traffic between TIWS’s network of service provider clients and Hammer’s carrier operations. Hammer is one of a number of millimetre wave-focused service providers in the USA, and appears to be targeting carriers, city authorities, enterprises, and households with a range of fixed-wireless broadband and over‑the-top services. Beyond the USA, the provider has secured a licence to offer fixed-wireless services in Sierra Leone, and has hinted at plans to extend its business into other African markets and the Caribbean.
