BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LON:BVC) has started proof-of-concept deal discussions for its 5G virtual network developed with chip designer ARM.
The Israeli-tech group completed the development milestones set down by ARM ahead of schedule and the companies are now jointly marketing the technology.
If successful, the proof-of-concept trials would be followed by field trials and finally full deployment.
Zvi Marom, BATM’s chief executive, said he was delighted with the progress so far.
“Our NFV ecosystem is designed to support an entirely virtualised network infrastructure, which will also be central to the implementation of 5G technologies and running applications such as to enable the Internet of Things.
We are also extremely proud to have been chosen by Arm as their partner, which is testimony to the strength of our solution. “
The market opportunity for the NFV solution is significant, Marom added.
