The Telecom Infra Project (TIP) is an engineering-focused initiative driven by operators, infrastructure providers, system integrators, and other technology companies that aim to reimagine the traditional approach to building and deploying telecom network infrastructure.
The growth of the internet and the rise of data-intensive services like video and virtual reality require us all to collaborate on the development of new technologies, rethink how we deploy existing technologies, and focus on simplicity, flexibility, and efficiency in everything we do.
TIP will explore new approaches and technologies across three initial focus areas: access, backhaul, and core and management. The project groups within these areas will leverage the unique engineering and operational expertise of each member. They will focus on developing new technologies and exploring new approaches to deploying in both developed and emerging markets.
This will not be a small undertaking and no single company can do it alone. Openness and collaboration can help everyone move faster in unlocking new efficiencies and innovations, as proven through other initiatives such as the Open Compute Project.
In the coming decades we will connect billions more people and share experiences in ways we have yet to imagine. Driving a faster pace of innovation in telecom infrastructure will ensure that the digital ecosystem is able to meet these new technology challenges, and unlock new opportunities for everyone.
Together, we can rebuild the telecom infrastructure for a sustainable future.
