Mangata Networks has been selected as a member of the 5G Open Innovation Lab, a global ecosystem of developers, start-ups, enterprises, academia and government institutions, focused on helping start-ups use 5G to develop new capabilities, use cases and market categories.
Mangata Networks will work closely with the Lab’s founding partners that include Intel, T-Mobile and other partners to further develop their 5G over satellite network solution. MangataEdge™ will be a bit more than a satellite terminal integrating microEdge cloud computing with 5G radio access networking capability.
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.
Integrating satellite over 5G (So5G) in a seamless, cost-effective manner enables information exchange and service delivery by communities and individuals not well connected today. The 5G Open Innovation Lab will give Mangata Networks access to leading edge technology, partnerships, resources, and environment to ensure their 5G product is a success.
Brian Holz, CEO of Mangata Networks, said, “The 5G Open Innovation Lab is a fantastic opportunity for our team. We look forward to working with TMobile, Intel and their partners to further develop and define our core terrestrial networking product, ensuring seamless integration into 5G networks at affordable costs. MangataEdge™ will allow operators to bring the cloud directly to businesses, communities and individuals, enabling them to effectively do their bit.”
