September 5, 2020 – Taqtile, a provider of enterprise software that leverages augmented reality (AR) for knowledge capture and sharing, has announced that after 13 weeks of development, testing, and collaboration with 5G industry leaders, it is one of 14 members of the 5G Open Innovation Lab’s (5G OI Lab) first-ever graduating class.
As a member of the initial 5G OI Lab cohort, Taqtile conducted testing on deployment scenarios utilizing the network capabilities of 5G and the company’s Manifest enterprise platform to address complex onboarding, sourcing, and industrial work tasks.
The 5G OI Lab is a global ecosystem of developers, start-ups, enterprises, academia and government institutions, founded by Intel, NASA, and T-Mobile. It provides access to advanced engineering, technology, and industry resources to selected start-ups with the goal of unleashing the potential of 5G networks, both now and in the future.
“The level of engagement we saw from Taqtile and the other members of the first cohort was phenomenal,” said Jim Brisimitzis, General Partner of the 5G Open Innovation Lab. “The opportunity to work with innovative companies like Taqtile in the 5G OI Lab will accelerate technological advances and worldwide platform adoption of 5G and the edge.”
Taqtile builds enterprise AR software that makes everyone an expert by arming frontline workers with a tool to easily capture knowledge, perform complex tasks, and collaborate with remote experts. The company stated that its participation in the 5G OI Lab will enable it to better leverage the power of 5G, which will help to improve throughput, resolve latency issues, and increase security for enterprise customers.
“It has been a momentous month for Taqtile that started with winning the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award in the Mixed Reality category, and now completing the curriculum at the 5G OI Lab,” said Dirck Schou, CEO of Taqtile. “We are leaders in a new category of software that will fundamentally change the way that industrial enterprises enable workers and ensure operational continuity using spatial computing, the cloud, and modern networking. Participating in the 5G OI Lab has enabled us to make a quantum leap forward in achieving this goal.”
