Today, we are excited to announce that we have been selected as a member of the 5G Open Innovation Lab, a global ecosystem of developers, start-ups, enterprises, academia, and government institutions. The 5G Open Innovation Lab is focused on helping start-ups utilize 5G to develop new capabilities, use cases, and market categories.
As a member, we will work closely with the 5G OI Lab’s founding partners including Intel, T-Mobile and others to develop cloud native solutions to seamlessly run 5G workloads from the cloud to the core data center to the edge. Kubernetes and cloud native technologies can deliver the standardization and automation that are key to make 5G business models both operationally and financially viable. As a leading corporate contributor to the Kubernetes project, we are very much looking forward to getting involved in the Lab and shaping an exciting future.
The Lab’s approach is unique in its focus on unifying an independent ecosystem by bringing together technology, financial and community partners and forward-thinking customers from industries such as media and entertainment, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, and retail to change the world in profound ways.
For developers, the 5G OI Lab is an extraordinary opportunity to work directly with technology and business leaders to design and bring to life their vision for new 5G applications.
At Kubermatic, we are emphatically committed to extending the advantages of cloud native computing to 5G technologies. We showcased our Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform as part of the first end-to-end 5G cloud native network at KubeCon San Diego in November last year, and joining the 5G OI Lab is another important milestone in pursuing a more advanced and connected future.
