Etherstack secures first order with AT&T

Investors are sending the Etherstack share price higher after digesting the company’s latest news.

According to its release, Etherstack advised that it has been awarded an initial order with American conglomerate AT&T.

The order is for the supply of Etherstack software licences and equipment, as well as integration and professional services.

Etherstack operates in wireless communications technologies for customers in the public safety, defence, utilities and mining industries. The company’s protocol stacks are exported globally and licensed by leading radio manufacturers.

The first order is expected to generate around US$420,000 (A$575,000) with delivery and revenue to be recognised this financial year.

Etherstack CEO David Deacon commented:

We are extremely honoured to secure our first direct deal with AT&T. It is a great achievement for Etherstack’s team and technology to be able to supply the world’s largest and most venerable telecommunications company.

We look forward to building a lasting relationship on the back of this initial order.

The win builds on the company’s recent success in securing another purchase order with communications provider RCS Telecommunications in May. That deal alone was worth $600,00 with most of the funds received in FY21.
