InterDigital’s novel service routing solution FLIPS (Flexible IP services), a cornerstone of the FLAME platform has been shortlisted for the Global Telecoms Award in the category for ‘Groundbreaking Virtualization Initiative.’ FLIPS provides key platform benefits such as dynamic and flexible service routing, network-level indirection, multicast delivery of HTTP responses and others described in recent FLAME blog posts.
FLIPS has been demonstrated at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and will be demonstrated again at the upcoming ETSI Mobile Edge Computing Congress in Berlin. FLIPS was also part of a first 5G network architecture based end user trial in the smart city environment of Bristol-Is-Open, another key FLAME partner.
InterDigital is shortlisted again against strong competition from other major industry players such as SK Telecom, Accedian, Cloudify, and NetNumber. The award announcement will be in November 2017.
