Inforient’s shift from solution provider to infrastructure company
How business acumen and connections turned a software company into a towerco
For years, Inforient acted as a telecoms solution provider and offered software solutions across Asia to the likes of Smartfren, Telkomsel and ZTE. Back in 2017, the company launched Inforient Infrastructure, a towerco subsidiary that aims to develop a portfolio of 1,000 towers over the next three years.
TowerXchange sat down with Inforient’s Head of Business Development, Jonathan Fernandez, to discuss the company’s expansion strategy and the differentiators of their business model.

Jonathan Fernandez, Head of Business Development, Inforient:
For years, we supplied and implemented our E-Sites infrastructure roll out management software to towercos, vendors and operators.
