About Us

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.

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.”

“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 onto 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.”
Laurent Le Gourrierec, Nokia
