Brightpoint Inc: Providing a Local Wireless Connection to the World

Brightpoint is a subsidiary of Ingram Micro. Brightpoint  provides “wireless device lifecycle services”, and specializes in the distribution of wireless devices and logistics services for the wireless industry.

In today’s world it is clearly the rule rather than the exception to be part of at least one wireless network. Some of us keep it simple with just a cell phone and an Internet connection on our computer at home. However, there are many among us that are connected to the world 24 hours a day 7 days a week year round through countless wireless applications. Even we at Indianapolis are not immune to such technology as evidenced by our Indianapolis twitter page.

How is it that all of this is possible you might ask? Well the answer is quite simple actually, thanks to an Indianapolis business known simply as Brightpoint. Brightpoint is based out of Plainfield, Indiana just past the Indianapolis International Airport off of the I-465 loop. While Brightpoint does not provide the Internet itself, they are one of the world’s leading distributors of wireless devices to further the reach of global communications.

While Brightpoint was only founded in 1989, they have quickly become one of the best in the wireless technology field. There are over 3,000 employees across the globe in 26 different countries occupying six of the seven continents of the world. It seems as though the penguins and seals that populate Antarctica haven’t taken to the wireless revolution just yet.

What all of this translates into in the scheme of things locally is Indianapolis jobs for Hoosiers here in Central Indiana. On the the global front this means that Brightpoint is responsible for the creation and maintenance of over 84 million wireless devices. With such an astounding number of products to be accountable for it is a very good thing that Brightpoint is good at what they do.

In both 2007 and 2009 Brightpoint was named by Fortune Magazine as one of “America’s Most Admired Companies.” That is a bit more of validation than having your mother tell everyone your the best at something. Why has Brightpoint been so successful in this new world of wireless technology? Because the barometer by which they measure their growth is by the success of their client’s business.

The next time you are sitting in your favorite Indianapolis restaurant or coffee house and start surfing the web, thank Brightpoint for technology that allows you to do so. When you are out shopping in Indianapolis and decide to update your profile it is because of a company like Brightpoint. It’s a good feeling to know you will always be connected by a company right here at home in the Circle City.
