this 5G Open Innovation Lab, An entrepreneurial project located in Bellevue, Washington, has nominated 12 startup companies selected to participate in its fourth batch.
The lab is funded by companies such as T-Mobile, Microsoft, Intel, and F5. It runs a 12-week project. Start-ups work closely with partners to “accelerate monetization opportunities for 5G, edge computing, and other use cases.” Partners provide business and technical assets, resources, and guidance.
The companies in the queue-including two companies from Seattle-represent a wide variety of technologies and industries, including artificial intelligence, advanced driver assistance systems, cyber security, the Internet of Things, natural language processing, and advanced wildfire fighting technology. The laboratory stated in a press release that to date, the new members have raised a total of US$203.9 million in investment.
Since the laboratory first started its business in May 2020, 69 teams have participated in the project, raising more than US$500 million in pre-project funding.
The laboratory also announced the increase Offshore RMB industry As a new partner, promote innovation in manufacturing and agriculture.
The following are the startups described by the 5G Open Innovation Lab:
- Broadman 17 (Israel) — Artificial intelligence developed by Brodmann17 is revolutionizing mobile security. The company’s computer vision-centric technology saved 95% of its computing power. This huge cost savings is the first to introduce artificial intelligence into new verticals, including mass-market passenger cars, video telematics, and micro-mobility.
- Darwin Artificial Intelligence (Canada)-DarwinAI is the leader in explainable artificial intelligence (XAI), a set of technologies that reveal how and why artificial intelligence makes decisions. These valuable insights enable DarwinAi to build outstanding enterprise AI solutions that have a smaller memory footprint, higher computational efficiency and extremely high accuracy.
- Zhuganu (Israel)-Juganu’s mission is to integrate the benefits of digitalization into the physical world through the realization of a secure, interconnected environment. It combines lighting with an artificial intelligence edge computing platform to monitor, analyze and protect public spaces. The company’s technology enables any organization to take advantage of the value of real-time data insights—whether indoors or outdoors.
- Metro (Seattle) — Metrolla is an edge data access and deployment platform for the smart sensor ecosystem. Metrolla provides a large number of on-demand streams from data-intensive sensors (such as LiDAR), in addition to highly accurate GPS servers, NTP services, and data modems for other V2X sensors.
- Mixed mode (Santa Barbara, California) — MixMode is a network security platform powered by cloud-native self-learning AI with next-generation anomaly detection and prediction capabilities. MixMode ingests and monitors large data environments (such as cloud, enterprise, 5G) in real time to detect zero-day threats and unsigned attacks, including ransomware, supply chain attacks, and internal threats on the zero-trust architecture.
- Oasis Factory (Bilrica, Massachusetts)-OasisWorks provides a composable infrastructure deployed in the data center, edge, or customer site. Traditional data center automation and assurance tools provide limited value because they are related to the entire life cycle of the infrastructure and have never been designed to handle the diversity or scale of the “edge”. Using common APIs or through the UI, applications or personnel can find resources, deploy blueprints, and evaluate value.
- Onclave network (McLean, Virginia)-a global cybersecurity leader in protecting old and new operating technology (OT) and IoT/IIOT devices (including those using 5G). Onclave significantly reduces the network attack surface, vulnerabilities, network complexity, and costly overhead caused by shared infrastructure-enabling a more efficient and safer method of operation and communication.
- Pano (San Francisco)-Pano provides hardware and software solutions for fire professionals and emergency managers through an interconnected intelligent platform to detect wildfire threats, confirm fires, and disseminate information to responders faster than ever.
- Port (Addison, Texas) — Polte’s patented Cloud Location Cellular (C-LoC) technology provides the highest quality location for any device connected to a 4G/5G cellular network, from 5G large-scale and critical IoT to mobile phones . With more accessible global indoor and outdoor visibility, Polte is providing businesses with unprecedented location intelligence and actionable insights.
- part (Boulder, Colorado)-Section’s edge-as-a-service technology enables SaaS, PaaS, and application builders to accelerate their path to the edge. By removing the burdens associated with infrastructure configuration, workload orchestration, scaling, monitoring, and traffic routing, Section helps innovators quickly and easily move their services to end users so that they can cost-effectively deliver faster and more secure Digital experience.
- symbol (Seattle) – Symbl.ai is a Conversational Intelligence (CI) platform that allows companies to understand natural human conversations across voice, video, and text communication channels in real-time and on a large scale in context. Its product suite enables developers to easily build and deploy intelligent speech-to-text capabilities, extract contextual insights, generate domain-specific insights and intelligence, and access advanced conversation analysis.
- Emerald green (Falls Church, Virginia)-ThruGreen makes traditional traffic lights smart by connecting traditional traffic lights to traffic data, reducing red light waiting time, and reducing idling to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Its plug-and-play solution can be installed in existing traffic signal cabinets within minutes and is compatible with all major traffic hardware suppliers.
Earlier this year, the laboratory also launched The first application development field laboratory Focus on agriculture and provide green space broadband connections for small farms.
Unlike many accelerators and incubators, the laboratory does not hold equity in startups. But the sponsoring company can obtain potential venture capital in advance and is part of the queue selection process.
