The project groups were created to support three strategic network areas: Access, Backhaul and Core & Management
Within each area, the initial set of project groups will address some of the most pressing industry needs including connecting the unconnected or underserved populations, and augmenting the development of powerful new technologies like 5G that will pave the way for better connectivity and richer services.
Learn about each Project Group
The Working Group is focused on enabling carriers to more efficiently deliver new services and applications by using mobile edge computing (MEC) to turn the RAN network edge (mobile, fixed, licensed and unlicensed spectrum) into an open media and service hub.
This group is developing rugged wireless access platforms and related technologies so carriers can cost-effectively provide reliable cellular phone and data service in remote, rural villages that lack telecom and electrical infrastructure.
System Integration and Site Optimization
This group is addressing system integration requirements with innovative, cost-effective and efficient end-to-end solutions that serve rural and urban regions in optimal and profitable ways.
Our project group will develop an open RAN architecture by defining open interfaces between internal components and focusing on the lab activity with various companies for multi-vendor interoperability. The goal is to broaden the mobile…Learn More
The project is pioneering a virtualized RAN (VRAN) solution comprised of low-cost remote radio units that can be managed and dynamically reconfigured by a centralized infrastructure over non-ideal transport.
Open Optical Packet Transport
This group is defining a Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) open packet transport architecture that triggers new innovation and prevents carriers being locked into a specific implementation.
The mmWave Group is pioneering a 60GHz wireless networking system to deliver gigabits of capacity in dense, urban environments more quickly, easily and at a lower cost than deploying fiber.
People and Process
This group’s goal is helping carriers accelerate the deployment of new services by improving their software development methods and better organizing and running their infrastructure teams.
Greenfield will provide solutions for managing continuously increasing network traffic volumes and for expanding their economically feasible reach.
Core Network Optimization
This project is creating a framework for disaggregated cloud-scale computing for radio core network (RCN) applications and services with leverages an open cloud architecture, libraries, software stacks and APIs.
TIP Community Labs is an integral component in the path to wide spread adoption that accelerates community-based innovation while incorporating data-driven results. The goal is to enable rapid real-world pilots leading to at-scale adoption of new infra solutions.
