Market Overview

Critical infrastructure industries – those that power and enable the economic engine of the world – comprise a vast and highly segmented market. Yet they remain dramatically – perhaps dangerously – under served by traditional consumer-grade wireless service providers. In the past the industry has been forced to define its own standards and build its own networks. However, these networks are limited in their ability to leverage common spectrum and the economies of scale and purchasing power offered by a single, dedicated broadband network. Infrastructure Networks provides the ability to bridge these market segments, creating a single network that will drive an ecosystem of advanced wireless devices for the rapidly evolving realm of machine-to-machine applications.

"Infrastructure Networks estimates that the shale play data services market is worth $200 million in the lower 48 states with a projected annual growth rate in the high single digits. Although small for the big telecoms, it represents a valuable niche market for specialty providers. “For a company like us, it’s a huge market opportunity,” Stan Hughey, INET CTO said. “You just have to be willing to get in a pickup truck and get dirty at the very edge of the network.” "
