Kyle Quillen Founder, CTO, Agile Network Buiders
Mr. Quillen is a technology executive and engineer whose expertise includes complex network topology and state-of-the-art wireless broadband networks. The bulk of his career has been centered on maximizing both mid mile and last mile data delivery from the full spectrum of wireless equipment and protocols. Prior to founding Agile Networks, Kyle was the CTO of Lightspeed Wireless, a rural broadband provider known as a WISP - Wireless Internet Service Provider. His understanding of wireless internet technology combined with his business model vision delivered enormous growth for Lightspeed. The pinnacle of his tenure at Lightspeed was his chief role in the engineering and execution of the Coshocton County Network - Ohio's first public/private partnership aimed at growing the "4th Utility" with wireless technology - and it was this project that led to the eventual formation of Agile Networks.

"Momentum had constructed a multi-billion dollar natural gas refining plant with multiple locations throughout southeastern Ohio, however, the rural landscape did not offer the necessary IT infrastructure to support the plant," said Kyle Quillen, Agile Networks Chief Technical Officer.
Momentum relies on technology to track pumps, pipelines, storage containers and more. An interruption in this technology could cost Momentum thousands of dollars per minute. The company tasked Agile with creating a solution to support these vital systems.
"Agile's solutions for Momentum provide a perfect example of Agile's ability to engineer a project to best fit a company's environment," said Quillen.

While the scope of the project alone sets it apart from anything else in the state, Agile CTO Kyle Quillen insists that quality is at the focus of the network's deployment, "This entire network is built to the stringent specifications required by Ohio public safety and that's something everybody is now able to take advantage of".

"We believe in broadband as an economic development driver, because we've seen firsthand what it can do for communities that have gone without," said Quillen. "But that's not a problem in Columbus; the residential coverage here is strong. Our abilityto be of service to Cleveland will be in delivering carrier class services to government and businesses. The Agile Network is an ideal solution for small- to medium-sized companies that are looking for alternatives to traditional business class solutions like T-1 lines."
Since the Network can deliver large connections (all the way up to 1Gbps) without the cost and lengthy cycle time of digging new land lines, Quillen added that, "large organizations with multiple locations will find enormous efficiencies on The Agile Network, in both rural and urban markets."

Quillen, who lives in New Philadelphia, had always been interested in starting his own company.
He attended Kent State University at Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia, but never earned a college degree. "I have a bachelor's degree from the school of hard knocks," Quillen said. While working as chief technology officer for Lightspeed Wireless in Berlin, Quillen had the opportunity to work on a project that serves as a case study of what Agile Network Builders hopes to do statewide.
In 2007, the owner of Pearl Valley Cheese in Fresno approached Coshocton County commissioners about getting broadband service. Commissioners teamed with Lightspeed to bring wireless broadband to rural areas of the county, deploying Lightspeed's equipment on water towers, television and radio towers, silos and MARCS towers.
While working on the project, Quillen came up with the idea of starting his own company.

"It's all funded via private capital," said Kyle Quillen, chief technology officer for Agile Networks, the company that is building the open access network, in an interview.
How does Agile expect to see a business case for the network when some other service providers have not been able to do that in other rural areas? This may be possible, in part, because the company is serving some more densely populated areas as well as more rural areas.
In addition, as Quillen explained, "We're leveraging investments that have already been made in vertical assets. The Agile network will rely heavily on fixed or nomadic wireless technology and the company has been able to use a large number of existing tower sites.
"Public safety has become our anchor tenant," explained Quillen - and as a result Agile has been able to gain access to existing public safety towers, as well as some commercial towers.
Some readers might be surprised to hear about wireless technology being used for public safety, as wireless service traditionally has been less reliable than wired alternatives. But Quillen argued that if a wireless network is properly engineered, it can be reliable enough to meet the needs of public safety.
The Agile Network will have 350 communication sites and 60 aggregation sites, at which wireless traffic will be shifted to fiber networks. Service to customers will be delivered over point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless equipment from Cambium Networks using a combination of licensed and unlicensed frequencies. Microwave will be used to transport traffic from wireless base stations to the network aggregation points.
"All of the microwave hops are designed [to provide] up to a gigabit of transport using standard microwave frequencies," Quillen said.
When I asked Quillen what impact bad weather would have on the wireless portion of the Agile Network, he pointed to Agile's use of multi-service routers from Tellabs that will be installed at each of the communication and aggregation sites and will be able to redirect traffic as needed to route around problem areas.
"Every tower will have an eastbound and westbound microwave path," said Quillen. Using this approach, the towers will essentially be installed in a ring, which will have fiber injection points on both the eastbound and westbound links.
Quillen noted that the Agile network was already carrying public safety traffic during a big storm that hit Ohio this summer and "never lost a frame or dropped a packet." Agile has been talking to competitive and incumbent local exchange carriers and data center operators and Quillen expects many of them to be wholesale customers.
"One thing everyone needs is bandwidth," said Quillen.
In some cases Agile's carrier customer will install the customer premises equipment for the customer. In other cases, Agile will handle that responsibility. If there are any remote areas where another carrier doesn't step in to provide service, Agile will act as the retail operator in those areas, Quillen said.

"Ohio will have the first network of its kind to provide metropolitan infrastructure to micropolitan communities," said Kyle Quillen, CTO at Agile Networks.

"As our business continues to grow, we are very excited to transition to Canton," said Kyle Quillen, Agile's founder and chief technology officer.

Kyle Quillen, co-founder of Canton-based Agile Networks, shared some preliminary information about a statewide wireless broadband network that will connect 3 million residential and business customers.
Quillen, who is the chief technology officer for Agile Networks, was also the chief technology officer for Lightspeed Wireless, the company awarded the bid to deploy wireless broadband in Coshocton County using public and privately owned resources.
Agile Networks will be an open access network, which means statewide carriers and local Internet service providers can use the system to connect to customers who otherwise couldn't be reached, according to Quillen.
