Who we are and what we do

IS-Wireless develops and delivers 5G networking solutions. These include standard-compliant software and hardware necessary to build 5G (and also 4G) telco networks by MNO, MVNOs, private institutions, municipalities and many more.

5G is understood here not only as one of the 3GPP releases (5G NR) but, primarily, as a new paradigm needed for the coming networking revolution, where better performance is delivered at a lower cost. This cannot be done by just copying the network architectures and business models from previous generations (2G, 3G, 4G). The new approach is necessary, where network functionality is fully software-defined (i.e., virtualized) and can be run on any COST hardware. What follows, such new network infrastructure can be offered in models known to software industry, such as SaaS (or rather Infrastructure-as-a-Service).

IS-Wireless specializes in software solutions for the Radio Access Network (RAN) part, which is the most costly, cross-disciplinary and challenging part of telecom network. 1000x higher capacity can only be provided with a much denser RAN network, where spectrum is reused aggressively by numerous low-power low-cost Radio Heads. Interference problems need to be solved, QoS needs to be provided and all these should happen at a lower network CAPEX and OPEX. This makes RAN the critical part of 5G.

IS-Wireless is strongly rooted in R&D on 4G and 5G. In 2006 the company started operation and provided a complete design of special-purpose broadband access system for one of the providers of Polish MOD. In 2009 the company started experimenting with 4G software implementations focusing on PHY and MAC layers. In 2012 IS-Wireless started participation in EU-funded collaborative projects on 5G, with partners such as Alcatel-Lucent, Intel, Atos, Fraunhofer Institute and many more. In 2018 IS-Wireless received Round-A funding for work on software-defined 5G networking (including RAN, core and MANO).

Team

The key advantages of our team include non-standard way of thinking, creativity in problem solving and high level of competence. Our team members combine a unique blend of experience gathered while working for hardware and software manufacturers, telecom operators and R&D institutions. The team includes software developers, hardware engineers and experienced business managers.

Inspirations

IS-Wireless draws scientific and spiritual inspiration from rich Polish and international heritage. Our inspirations include:

  • Polish School of Mathematics  {creative, unconventional, and committed} was a scientific community active at the beginning of the 20th century with most notable representatives working in Kraków, Lwów and Warsaw, including  Marian Rejewski, Stanislaw Ulam and Stefan Banach.

  • Maria Skłodowska-Curie  {talented, innovative, and pioneer} was a Polish scientist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel-prize, the first person and the only woman to win it twice. Moreover, she was the first woman professor at the University of Paris.
