iPaaS Network Access

Open for Applications!

The Accessing the 5G Innovation Platform as a Service (iPaaS) Testbed enables small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to get early access to a state-of-the-art 5G development platform for prototyping and testing new products and services.

With potential speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second, increased network capacity and ultra-low latencies of milliseconds, 5G will be critical to delivering a whole new generation of products and services to the marketplace, including connected and autonomous vehicles, remote healthcare, virtual/augmented reality, smart cities, and new Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

IPaaS is offered through three ENCQOR 5G Digital Innovation Hubs that enable SMEs to:

  • Access three different 5G antennas (high, mid and low bands)
  • Accelerate their time to market by providing access to the Innovation Platform as a Service (iPaaS) testbed, an operational, pre-commercial 5G wireless environment with edge compute resources
  • Develop, prototype, test and demonstrate new products and services on a standards-based 5G iPaaS testbed
  • Connect with anchor partners, customers and customized ecosystem and business services

The ENCQOR 5G Digital Innovation Hubs also offer many complementary business support services to help SMEs leverage the full potential of the next generation of digital infrastructure.

IPaaS is now being offered with remote access for those unable to travel to the Innovation Hubs! If you’re interested in remotely accessing the testbed, apply today.

The future is connected, and 5G is the platform on which it will be enabled. See if your business is right for the ENCQOR 5G iPaaS testbed today!
