I'm very pleased to announce that we've partnered with Microsoft on their Airband project. Airband is an initiative that Microsoft has started to bring Internet access to 2 million unserved people in North America - you can check out a video on their strategy here.Sonar is the only billing/OSS platform to be an official Airband partner, and we'd love to tell you more about it. If you're coming to WISPAPALOOZA, please stop by our booth - Microsoft will also be in attendance to share more information about the project.Stay tuned for more details - hope to see you in Las Vegas next week!
We'll be at WISPAPALOOZA in just a few days, and I hope to see many of you there. We're running a training session on Monday, and there's still time to register!
We have some big announcements to make that we're working hard to be able to get to you by the show, but if you're coming, stop by our booth and we'll tell you in person.
Please note that our Canadian staff will observe Victoria Day on Monday, May 21 and our U.S. staff will observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 28th. Our support lines will remain open on both days. However, you might see a small increase in response time. We appreciate your patience as we will work diligently to resolve any tickets or support issues.
Once again, we would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support, and if you have any questions about the holiday staffing, or any other requirements, our support team is always glad to be of service. You can reach us from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (CST), Monday to Friday, by phone or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you for your continued support.
Sonar 1.7 is out now! The big new feature in 1.7 is geofencing for scheduling, but you can check out the entire changelog here. We're still hard at work on Sonar version 2.0 - I hope you enjoy 1.7, and there'll be more news coming soon!
I'm very happy to officially welcome two new members to the Sonar team - Shane MacDonald, previously Senior Accounts Manager at KP Performance, and Jimmy Thomson, previously Professional Services Manager at CDW.
Shane has been with KP Performance since the beginning, and has been instrumental in the growth of the company from a tiny startup to a huge manufacturer that was recently acquired by Infinite Electronics. Shane brings an enormous knowledge of the fixed wireless ISP industry with him, and I can't wait to see what he can do with Sonar! Shane will be primarily working on business growth and development - this means helping us figure out what direction we should be taking the software and the company to best serve all our customers.
