AccelerComm’s cutting-edge technology builds on the successful roll out of 5G networks enabling the next generation of high-value use cases requiring ultra-reliable, low latency communications, such as gaming or VR, industrial IoT, autonomous vehicles and drone control. The company’s product suite includes a complete 3GPP Compliant 5G channel coding IP solution that delivers reduced latency and power consumption for the most critical components of 5G NR, whilst meeting all the throughput and error correction targets. AccelerComm’s IP packages can be quickly integrated and flexibly delivered for use in custom silicon (ASIC), programmable hardware (FPGA) or as software solutions, covering all use cases within current standards

“For 5G to meet its full potential it is critical that the whole ecosystem works together to maximize the benefits from this technology, solve issues and combine to ensure that applications and services meet their full potential,” said Rob Barnes, VP of Sales & Marketing at AccelerComm. “We are delighted to have been selected as one of fifteen 5G application and infrastructure pioneers and innovators and are excited to be involved in this prestigious program.”

Said Jim Brisimitzis, general partner of the 5G Open Innovation Lab, “Our program set out to develop the software ecosystem for 5G and edge computing. Our third batch combines the best of applications and infrastructure companies that will power use cases and important edge computing capabilities. The diversity of stages, use cases, and technology of this batch demonstrates the program’s evolution and ability to attract a range of companies.”

The Lab does not take an equity position in its member companies, rather, companies collaborate with 5G technology experts and business advisors through CEO and CTO roundtables, private working sessions, virtual networking and social events, and opportunities to meet with the Lab’s extensive partner network of venture capital firms.

The 5G Open Innovation Lab reviews new applicants on a rolling admissions basis. Companies can apply to become part of the next Fall 2021 batch of ecosystem member companies at the following link:
