OpenEPC won the Next-Gen Deployment for Wireless Networks category in the prestigious Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition 2016.

Berlin, 18th November 2016 – We are thrilled to have won the Next-Gen Deployment for Wireless Networks category at yesterday’s 2016 Fierce Innovation Awards.

OpenEPC, which offers all the functionality of a core mobile network using only software, was recognized by the judges for its potential to disrupt the industry.

Already the de facto standard for testbed deployments, OpenEPC is now in the process of being deployed in live installations. CND is also actively involved in shaping 5G transport networks through its work with the EU-funded Horizon 2020 5GPPP 5G-Crosshaul consortium.

Target markets for OpenEPC include: carriers designing next-generation networks using SDN/NFV;  public safety organisations requiring a secure private LTE network using standard smartphones; and carriers evaluating Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) and distributed EPC concepts for 5G IoT/IIoT applications.
