Basically SMX4 leverage pax-url to look up artifacts during runtime,  
you can take a look at etc/org.ops4j.pax.url.mvn.cfg to get ideas  
where pax-url will try to find the artifacts, roughly the sequence is
SMX4_HOME/system folder
your maven local repo folder
org.ops4j.pax.url.mvn.repositories listed in  etc/ 
so if it can't find it locally, it will use remote url to download.

Once find and install the bundle, it will cache it in SMX4_HOME/data  
folder, so unless you remove the data folder, it won't try to find the  
artifacts which already get installed.

So if you don't have internet connection, you need ensure your maven  
local repo have all necessary bundles,  or the nexus as I mentioned  
before is also a popularly used solution, only this nexus server can  
access internet but your production server is still in the intranet.

Btw, FuseSource provide offline repo with each FUSE ESB release which  
typically address the concern you encountered here, but it's not free.
