Not if, when
Accelleran talk to us about neutral hosts and smart cities
Accelleran have a vast amount of small cell experience and have been an integral part of the 5GCity Project, which aims to build and deploy a common, multi-tenant, open platform that extends the (centralised) cloud model to the extreme edge of the network. The project, with a demonstration in three different cities (Barcelona, Bristol and Lucca), creates a ‘living lab’ for 5G technologies. Frédéric Van Durme, CEO of Accelleran, talks us through Accelleran’s history, expertise and experiences of working on this innovative project.
