5G Open Innovation Lab Selects Kubermatic to Drive Innovation on 5G


Kubermatic has 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. Kubermatic will work closely with the Lab’s founding partners including Intel, T-Mobile and others to develop cloud native solutions to seamlessly run 5G 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,” said Kubermatic CEO Sebastian Scheele. With Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform and KubeOne, the company offers two production-proven open source solutions for automation of IT operations from the infrastructure to the application across countless environments.

“The 5G OI Lab is an extraordinary opportunity for developers to work directly with technology and business leaders to design and bring to life their vision and dreams for new 5G applications,” said Jim Brisimitzis, managing partner of the 5G OI Lab. “This is not just any startup program. We are building a true partner ecosystem that will bring knowledge, resources and capital together to change the world in profound ways.”
