- Hawaiian carrier Mobi is set to leverage the largest 5G network in the US
- Mobi makes strategic shift from legacy networks to deploy a cloud-native mobile core, fully managed as-a-Service
- Mobi selects WG2 for 4G/5G/IMS mobile core network deployed on infrastructure from AWS to realize rapid commercial launch
- Mobi disrupts the MVNO and 5G markets with differentiated service offering by tapping network APIs and global app development ecosystem
(OSLO, NORWAY, JAN 9, 2023) – Working Group Two today announced it has joined Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) as it continues to build its presence in the United States.
WG2 delivers a cloud-native 4G/5G core network as-a-service and as-a-platform for operators and developers. This drives the dual benefits of cost savings and revenue growth for the mobile industry. To help operators grow and differentiate, WG2 also offers a product marketplace that takes advantage of the programmable core network to create app stores of products for operators and users alike.
The AWS Snowcone is a small form factor server that was originally meant for data transport to AWS data centers. However it can also be used as a small device running compute workloads. We wanted to evaluate the performance of the Snowcone as it is a quite intriguing piece of technology which we might want to use as a an on-premise UPF (User Plane Function) in low-throughput 5G networks (think IoT or Proof of Concept deployments).
If that headline was slightly incomprehensible to you, it means that we’ve now made it possible to call pretty much anyone from a 5G-enabled handset that is connected to the Working Group Two 5G core via a 5G antenna. To be clear, we’re not talking about making a “first” Voice over New Radio (VoNR) call (those took place way back in 2021), but about making VoNR calls from a set of major commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) 5G devices to other mobile and fixed handsets.
Our global mobile core platform is rapidly evolving. Here's what the team is building right now.
