"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.

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
