The power of open collaboration

Recognizing the demand for interoperable, open networks, we want to connect system integrators, international operators, vendors, and start-ups at the i14y Lab. Together we test, validate, and integrate components for disaggregated network ecosystems. This way we combine the optimal technical infrastructure, expertise, and visionary power in one open testing ground – while also minimizing costs, time, and effort for development of innovative ideas and business opportunities.

Let's speed up technology development and standard maturity.

We’re aiming for faster innovation and greater cost efficiency through network disaggregation. Towards this goal we need to work together to accelerate development of solutions with interoperable components based on open standard interfaces. This is not an easy task, and one that requires the perseverance to overcome setbacks. But together, we will get there, with an unbeatable network of partners, supporters and developers!
