My prospective

Why should we care about technology infrastructure projects?

First things first- objectives

Planning framework

Execution


My prospective
My prospective

  • Grew up in New England during the decline of the industrial economy and the emergence of the Internet

  • Became a telecom/IT project guy as an Army officer, learned about the importance of execution

  • Own a tech infrastructure planning, engineering, and construction company, cut our teeth on ARRA broadband and smart grid, 2-100 people in 6 years. We don’t compete with carriers, we help communities (~50/year) and carriers (mobility/fiber) plan and build


Why should we care about planned tech infrastructure
Why should we care about planned tech infrastructure?

  • Because we have sea ports, airports, mill space, and roads already

  • Exporting our ideas is going to be a bigger economic engine than our physical products

  • Technology is just a tool, not an end unto itself

  • Limited resources applied to the right tech to achieve a community’s specific objectives


Planning framework
Planning framework

  • Start with economic development objectives

  • What are table stakes for the residential base?

  • How will the community differentiate?

  • What platform is needed to meet objectives?

  • What does the platform need to do?

  • How much will it cost?

  • Applications:

    • Broadband

    • Smart grid

    • Intelligent transportation

    • Cloud

  • Technologies

    • Fiber

    • Wireless

    • Data center

    • Software


Don t forget
Don’t forget!

  • Aggregate demand and look for natural affinity groups

  • Check to see what private providers can do first- generally a low awareness about carrier capabilities in communities

  • Mobility matters

  • Market failure = potential subsidy needed

  • Your community built the roads- you can do anything!
