Aspenworks is a premiere project management and communications consulting organization. Having built 5 successful Internet service providers, and operated 3 for over 5 years with positive cash flow, we understand how Internet services need to be planned and delivered.
I helped launch the dialup Internet for thousands of users 1996-8, produced DSL broadband revolution in 1998-9, extended wireless to cover a large part of Central Colorado in 2000-2003 and consulted to Microsoft on Broadband mobility in 2006-2008.
Today we’re helping establish high performance networks, in rural and secondary markets.
“In 1988 when I registered my first domain name, I was one of a few dozen “Network Managers” on the Internet. I happened to be working on Advanced Intelligent networks for Sprint, AT&T and others. I offered email and provided these services from my office which was uplinked to AT&T and Sun Microsystems from my server. Internet services would replace much of the advanced services Bellcore and AT&T expected in the Advanced SS7 networks which were their future. Soon enough a small server in 1988, using Xenix and UUCP, turned into a focused services company. Clients such as Glenwood Springs’ ground breaking Community Broadband Network, to Microsoft’s Unlimited Potential Group, to the USDA and US Forest Service. I’ve been in the right place at the right time, and continue to enjoy building long term relationships with other visionary leaders in these dynamic times.” – Alex Huppenthal, Founder Aspenworks, Ltd.
Aspenworks was founded in 2000 by Alex Huppenthal. By providing market and technical guidance to key decision makers in corporate and government roles, Aspenworks helps organizations achieve their goals. Focusing on rural telcom in 1996, Aspenworks founder independently developed a high performance DSL modem ahead of the industry. By launching several ISPs, and monitoring their market and technical business issues, Aspenworks quickly developed business models which prove continuously successful. Rural Telcommunications in Central Colorado’s beautiful Roaring Fork Valley provides challanges from a diverse mountainous environment, to regulatory and market forces which shaped the successful model Aspenworks recommends to its clients.
From Aspen to Glenwood Springs, Aspenworks applies the experience gained over years in engineering for large telecommunications giants, such as British Telecom, AT&T to counsel its clients in the appropriate, practical solutions.
Recently Aspenworks completed a global project management effort for Microsoft Corporation, managing a key project in Microsoft’s Unlimited Potential Group. By providing key risk management and group leadership within this project, which included support organizations for O2/Telephonica in Ireland, Vodaphone in Germany, SMART in the Philippines and companies in Thailand and Malyasia, we’ve given and gained additional experience in how the emerging Mobile Broadband communications networks of LTE, HSDPA and others are actually being deployed and used.
Today, we’re working with the USDA, US Forest Service to extend rural communications to critical areas where no services are available. Using Mobile Broadband technologies, voice, video and data connections are being established to key locations throughout their district.
We continue to innovate and embrace the latest technologies that serve the greater good. From Zero Net Energy use policies to efficient spectrum usage, we move with consideration.
