San Francisco, California, Sept 2, 2022 – Airwaive is excited to announce our partnership with Hexagon to decentralize wireless networks worldwide. Hexagon Wireless is accelerating the global adoption of decentralized wireless (DeWi) infrastructure to improve the way humans communicate and connect.
At the core of this partnership, Airwaive’s Airbnb-inspired marketplace platform enables Hexagon to connect, find and lease ideal host locations. Airwaive’s 3D, frequency-specific site planning tools accelerate 5G wireless network deployments in Northern California as a first step.
As the largest network builder in the Pollen Mobile ecosystem, Hexagon, through its collaboration with Airwaive, helps real estate owners monetize their assets through no-cost, no-hassle deployments of wireless equipment. Hexagon covers all equipment, installation, and ongoing costs. Real estate owners are then compensated with a revenue share model for contributing their locations to Hexagon, which can be paid in PCN (Pollen Mobile’s native token) or in USD
Airwaive and Hexagon share the same vision of leveraging the blockchain and token incentive model and adopting it to the Telecom industry, providing accessible and affordable connectivity.
“We’re excited to work with visionaries like Hexagon Wireless and Pollen, as we move forward together – as an industry – to decentralize the last mile of the Internet with wireless technologies.” – Jeff Yee, CEO of Airwaive
“A very important part of our mandate as an accelerator for the DeWi space is to be one of the earliest and most prominent deployers of decentralized wireless infrastructure for promising DeWi protocols. This means buying and deploying large amounts of wireless hardware on real estate that is optimized for providing high-quality coverage and token earnings. Airwaive has been an incredibly helpful partner and the marketplace they provide to match real estate owners and network deployers like ourselves is a huge value-add.” – Connor Lovely, Head of BD at Hexagon Wireless
Hexagon Wireless is the largest accelerator in the decentralized wireless (DeWi) space. We are protocol-agnostic and look to engage with promising projects from launch through to maturity. Currently, our primary role consists of building DeWi networks by deploying hardware to create wireless coverage and earn token rewards from protocols in the space such as Helium and Pollen Mobile. As the DeWi industry evolves and matures, we’re exploring later stage value-add business lines such as financial services, fleet management software, and wireless coverage as a service to onboard data demand and users.
Airwaive connects wireless service providers with home and business owners who earn income operating wireless access points in their neighborhoods. Airwaive provides the tools and incentives for the components of a decentralized wireless network to thrive, offering internet service providers, hosts and validators the resources and motivation to build and scale the internet using wireless technology to reach everyone on the planet. Airwaive’s mission is not complete until 100% of the world has affordable access to broadband internet.
