Next generation wireless infrastructure

5G is coming, but who is going to deliver it?

Data demand
Traffic is already growing exponentially, especially in dense urban areas. With 5G the rate of growth will only increase.
The ask
We need dense networks of small cells.
The challenge
It is difficult, time consuming and expensive for operators to deploy the infrastructure themselves.

Ontix: infrastructure as a service

We invest in small cell infrastructure: including connectivity. We licence it to operators when we deploy their small cells. We make it easier, quicker and cheaper for operators to add small cells.

What we do

We buy the rights to use existing street level infrastructure, and we adapt it.
We design, plan and build the network that will connect our footprint. This has been a major blocker, so we are addressing it with “Metrohaul”.
We market our infrastructure through our portal. The operators can then choose what they want us to install, and where.
We plan, execute and document the workflow required to install the small cells. We deploy demand for all operators, and we invest in process improvement, to make this efficient
We provide the help desk and field force to manage and fix faults.
