ST. LOUIS - September 24, 2020 - Amdocs (NASDAQ:DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced its partnership in the 5G Open Innovation Lab, a global ecosystem for developers, enterprises, wireless carriers and technology leaders to fuel the development and monetization of new 5G powered technology use cases and markets. Amdocs is joining founding partners T-Mobile, Intel, NASA and the others announced today to pool expertise, technology and resources to develop, test and bring to market innovative 5G use cases that realize the full monetization potential of 5G networks and create a more connected world.

“Joining the 5G Open Innovation Lab is a clear sign of commitment from Amdocs to fuel the development of new 5G powered capabilities and use cases,” said Jim Brisimitzis, General Partner, 5G Open Innovation Lab. “As a founding partner, we look forward to Amdocs playing an integral role in helping to create and build the community that will bring tangible products and prototypes to market and accelerate the journey to 5G.”

“Amdocs has invested significantly in the development of open, modular and cloud-native network automation and service monetization solutions for 5G and the new era of programmable networks,” said Anthony Goonetilleke, group president of Media, Network and Technology, Amdocs. “We look forward to leveraging our proven expertise, deep experience and advanced technology to help the 5G Open Lab prototype and accelerate the launch of new monetization models across a range of industry verticals that stimulate the imagination, like autonomous vehicles, remote surgery and immersive mobile VR and AR. We believe that the combination of cloud-native, distributed technologies combined with 5G network capabilities such as network slice automation, flexible charging/rating on the edge, and partner lifecycle management will contribute to new monetization opportunities in the 5G era.”

Service providers such as T-Mobile are accelerating the build-out and operations of advanced 5G networks. The engagement of the next wave of founding partners, such as Amdocs, will drive the partner ecosystem to delve deeper into the practical aspects of bringing new use-cases to market in terms of infrastructure to host and run them, as well as the systems to manage the end-to-end lifecycle covering things like service orchestration, monetization, and partner settlements.
