About Us

about-us-header

Founded February 2016, the Telecom Infra Project, Inc. (TIP) is an engineering-focused initiative driven by operators, suppliers, developers, integrators, and startups to disaggregate the traditional network deployment approach.

We have strived to make the site a helpful resource for existing, and prospective, members and we will continue to improve its usefulness.
The collective aim of our community is to collaborate on new technologies, examine new business approaches and spur new investments into the telecom space.

“Having players from internet companies, from startups and established vendors, and the telcos, working together on what the infrastructure of the future should look like.”
Axel Clauberg, Chairman of the Board, TIP

Leland Lai, Executive Director

Leland brings to TIP both operator and vendor perspectives. As Managing Director, Asia for GSMA between 2010-2017, Leland charted a strategic pivot and grew the Mobile World Congress Shanghai (www.mwcshanghai.com) from 2,000 to 53,000 attendees in seven years. Leland began his career with Hutchison Telecom in 1990, where he participated in world’s first GSM license bids in Germany, Greece and Australia.

He then restructured in Puerto Rico an Alcatel MVNO for an IPO as part of eOn Communications (Nasdaq: EONC) in 2000.

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it… You have all these equipment makers saying, ‘The world is changing so let’s try to hold on to what we know.’ But the thing is that the world is changing anyway, so it’s much better to take an active role in shaping the future.”
