SAN JOSE, CA, USA, May 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aarna Networks, Inc. announced today that it has joined the 5G Open Innovation Lab, an ecosystem for developers, enterprises, carriers, and technology leaders, focused on helping start-ups utilize 5G to develop new capabilities, use cases and market categories. Aarna Networks will work closely with the Lab’s founding partners including Intel, T-Mobile, and other partners to help entrepreneurs and developers gain access to engineering, technology, and industry insights that will enable the startup community.
Amar Kapadia, Co-founder and CEO of Aarna Networks said, “By joining the 5G Open Innovation Lab, we plan to collaborate with a large ecosystem of startup and end users on state-of-the-art 5G and edge computing use cases such as private 5G over CBRS.”
Unique to the Lab’s approach is its focus on unifying an independent ecosystem by bringing together technology, financial, and community partners and forward-thinking customers from industries such as media and entertainment, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, and retail.
Aarna Networks provides orchestration, management, and automation software for 5G and edge computing applications. With the anticipated explosion in the number of edge sites and dynamic edge applications, the management aspect becomes critical. Aarna Networks provides a distribution of the Linux Foundation open source project Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) to fill this gap.
“The 5G OI Lab is an extraordinary opportunity for developers to work directly with technology and business leaders to design and bring to life their vision and dreams for new 5G applications,” said Jim Brisimitzis, managing partner of the 5G OI Lab. “This is not just any startup program.
