AirNet Communications CEO Lee Hamilton talks to The Wall Street Transcript

NEW YORK, May 10, 2001/Business Wire/ -- The Wall Street Transcript has published an in-depth interview with Lee Hamilton, CEO of AirNet Communications (Nasdaq:ANCC) in which he talks at length about the company’s future.

The entire 2,400-word interview is available online at

Hamilton gives an overview of the company. “Based on fiscal 2000 financial results, AirNet is now a $34 million-a-year company. The analysts are projecting $70 million in revenue this year, and the company has moved from selling primarily to entrepreneurial or smaller network operators to now selling to larger operators, with five trials under way with large operators.”

Looking forward, Hamilton states, “I think the basic take away is that AirNet started shipping its products in May of 1997, starting with the smaller entrepreneurial operators. We’ve been successful in developing a strong base of over 20 customers. The product works, and works well. We’re proven the value proposition by signing up these large operator trials, and the next big step for AirNet, as we turn those trials into orders, will be to step into the top tier of customers, and that’s going to drive substantial, additional growth and opportunities for the company.”

This interview is part of the Satellite Communications Issue available at or by calling (212) 952-7433.
