Catalyst collaboration wins ‘Outstanding Ecosystems design with CurateFx’ award for its ‘5G Ride On!’ project
Fairfax, VA., USA – 16 November 2020. TEOCO, as part of the proof of concept “5G Ride On!” project, today announces that the catalyst has been selected as a winner in TM Forum’s 2020 Catalyst Awards during Digital Transformation World Series; TM Forum’s flagship digital conference. Championed by BT, Orange, and TIM, and in collaboration with TEOCO, AsiaInfo International, Incognito, Huawei and MDS Global, the “5G Ride On!” catalyst was recognized with the “Outstanding Ecosystem Design with CurateFx”.
The ultimate goal of the 5G Ride On! Catalyst was to create a business continuity solution for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure businesses. It seeks to orchestrate and monetise a complex ecosystem, comprising multiple partners and business processes that makeup the EV charging market. TEOCO has contributed its leading expertise in network automation and service assurance to help communications service providers (CSPs) monetise EV charging using an autonomous 5G network framework.
Catalysts are proof-of-concept projects developed collaboratively by TM Forum members. These projects bring together companies large and small to create innovate solutions to common challenges demonstrating how this can be achieved leveraging key TM Forum best practices and standards. Many innovative and thought-provoking proof-of-concept projects turned prototype have been created by the Catalyst program. This year seven winning programs were selected from 32 Catalysts, all of which were showcased during Digital Transformation World Series.
