5G Open Innovation Lab Launches KhasmX

The 5G Open Innovation Lab (5G OI Lab), a Bellevue, WA-based global innovation ecosystem that brings together multi-stage startups, enterprise and global technology platforms and investors, announced the launch of KhasmX, a new business unit dedicated to experimenting with innovative platforms, business models, and facilitating engagements between startups and enterprises.

KhasmX is designed to supporting rapid “innovation sandboxing” across the 5G OI Lab ecosystem. By leveraging a proven proof-of-concept approach, such as the recent Private 5G Network collaboration at the Tacoma Tideflats, KhasmX integrates startup technologies with enterprise platforms from 5G OI Lab ecosystem partners to deliver innovative solutions that drive value in new ways.

Two new initiatives, KEEN and Telco AI Cloud, embody the spirit of the KhasmX announcement. These initiatives aim to address the growing demand for Private 5G and Edge platforms, as well as to explore the potential of co-locating AI edge cloud services within Telco networks.

  • KEEN: The KEEN platform serves two primary use cases: ad hoc remote connectivity and turn-key enterprise cellular & edge networks. Being cloud-native, it can scale from one access point to hundreds made possible through its platform partnerships with Druid Software, Airspan Networks, and FibroLAN.
  • Telco AI Cloud: This consortium, composed of 5G OI Lab alumni and partners, collaborates to experiment with AI edge cloud services within Telco networks. The goal is to validate developer interest and test new business models.

5G OI Lab also added Druid Software and MosoLabs as new Ecosystem Partners in support of KhasmX initiatives.

5G Open Innovation Lab is a global innovation ecosystem that brings together multi-stage startups, enterprise and global technology platforms and investors to connect and collaborate on developing disruptive new enterprise technologies and bridging the chasm between startup innovation and enterprise adoption.
