Continual has announced that it has become a member of the 5G Open Innovation Lab, which is a global ecosystem to connect organizations working on developing 5G technologies and to give them access to open platforms, enterprises and markets needed to create, test and deploy new use cases and innovations for 5G. Continual has been selected as one of 15 companies to join the 5G Open Innovation Lab’s Spring 2021 program.
The 5G Open Innovation Lab allows enterprises, carriers, government and technology leaders to work together with start-ups on the development of new 5G capabilities and use cases, across many market categories. The Lab allows ecosystem partners to accelerate proof-of-concepts (POC), product testing and deployment and to share and license their research and technology with others in their cohort as they grow together.
“Joining the 5G Open Innovation Lab will allow us not only to collaborate more closely with our existing partners like Microsoft and Amdocs, but also to forge new relationships with organizations with technology that is complementary to our mobility experience analytics,” said Greg Snipper, CEO of Continual. “We look forward to a rewarding exchange of ideas with other members, and to proving our technology with new 5G use cases and in new markets.”
“We invited Continual to join our Lab program because of the innovative approach of their AI-based mobility experience solution and the excellent business benefits they have demonstrated for their customers,” said Jim Brisimitzis, general partner of the 5G Open Innovation Lab. “The program focuses on developing the software ecosystem for 5G and edge computing, and on achieving real outcomes by promoting industry engagements. By adding new members like Continual, we can further help our partners to deliver value to their customers through digital transformation, while at the same time strengthening the leadership positions of all the ecosystem members and partners.”
