Infrastructure Networks’ Chief Strategy Officer and Founder Stanley Hughey will discuss the emergence of communications solutions that can be deployed with little or no capital investment on the part of the operator. These solutions provide long term fixed cost connectivity in support of legacy field automation infrastructure while enabling the implementation of bandwidth intensive edge technologies. Field wide connectivity is achieved in partnership with the operator by leveraging the solution provider’s “boots-on-the-ground” field support, engineering and project management capabilities to combine private LTE, fiber access, licensed point-to-point and integration of legacy communications technology. Hughey will present INET customer case studies that show how its customers used this approach to solve industry-wide remote communication problems and create standardized, scalable communications across areas of operation. INET will share the economic benefits of this innovative “Solution-as-a-Service” approach and the hidden cost associated with traditional field communications deployments and ownership.
