We’re aiming for faster innovation and greater cost efficiency

The i14y Lab is an open lab for interoperability testing of disaggregated telco systems, such as Open RAN, operated by a consortium of strong partners, led by Deutsche Telekom and supported with funding from the German Ministry of Digital and Transport (BMDV).


We provide infrastructure for integration tests with the aim to certify market readiness and accelerate time to market for multi-vendor disaggregated telco solutions. By creating and providing a vendor independent environment, we promote the development of an innovative, open, and interoperable telco ecosystem.

Meet our strong people network


The i14y Lab is an open testing ground where major players of the telco industry join forces. Their combined know how, skills and funding turns the i14y Lab into a powerful place for co-development and testing processes.

Enthusiastic about the power of open collaboration

We firmly believe that interoperable, open networks and the rising demand for them comes in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. Hence, our internal teams do reflect this diversity best they can themselves: the broad variety of seniority paired with multiple different backgrounds ranging from business to tech including six different nationalities, who all work seamlessly together either on-site or remote is what makes i14y Lab a space to truly perform.


Recently we have built up and invested heavily in our i14y team, nonetheless we encourage everyone to reach out as we are going to re-direct your application within our partner consortium. If you think you will thrive in this unique environment and can walk the talk with us, we would like to hear from you. Furthermore, there are temporary employment tracks via dedicated dual or working student schemes at Deutsche Telekom.
