We are very proud to announce that we have been selected as one of the top 7 finalists of the Nokia Silicon Valley Open Innovation Challenge.

The result is based on evaluations of around 100 entries done by 30+ selected jury members representing SVP/ VP/ Director level executives from Nokia Networks CTO group, Mobile Broadband Business Unit, Services Business Unit, Nokia Technologies, Nokia Growth Partners and also from Service providers and external innovation consultants.

The Nokia Open Innovation Challenge is an opportunity to collaborate with Nokia on game changing innovation – the kind of ideas which will shape the future of the telecommunications industry. It’s an opportunity for companies to work with the best to transform ideas into real solutions and business. Nokia is looking for innovative ideas, technologies, or business models addressing two of the most disruptive opportunities for service providers today – Big Colossal data analytics and Telco Cloud.

Netrounds’ cloud delivered service assurance solution uses downloadable SW probes that enable traffic generation, monitoring and testing inside the Telco Cloud. In just minutes, operators can download a SW appliance that transforms any bare metal x86 hardware or virtual machine in NFV infrastructures into professional test and measurement devices.

Our CEO Mats Nordlund is now in Silicon Valley to give a presentation and showcase our solution at the grand finale event tomorrow Wednesday, July 2. Stay tuned for more information.
