TIP Lab in Taiwan, supported by IDB, connects Taiwan's 5G supply chain with global ecosystem for opportunities in telecom infrastructure
In the afternoon on February 28 at Mobile World Congress 2023 and with support from Industrial Development Bureau (IDB), a joint announcement was made by Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan Mobile (TWM) and Telecom Infra Project (TIP) on their shared confidence in products validated by TIP Community Lab before bringing them into 5G private networks for consideration.
   Given the growing interest from telecom operators in U.S. and Europe toward open networking in order to reduce dependency on proprietary telecom solutions, an opportunity also surfaced for Taiwan's ICT industry to become a reliable supplier of base stations, transport equipment, and core network solutions to global partners.
TIP is a global community of tier-one carriers, system integrators, and vendors that are driving advancement of 5G open networking solutions in telecom infrastructure, hoping to break through vendor lock-in, enhance supplier diversity, and lower the total cost of ownership to accelerate 5G development. In order to help Taiwan's industry seize business opportunities in 5G, ITRI's TIP Community Lab, supported by IDB, became the first in APAC that can validate and award badges to mature products in open networking while providing access to the global marketplace.  
Currently, there are four vendors from Taiwan with products successfully validated by the TIP Lab in Taiwan. They are UfiSpace (DCSG), Lions Technology (Open RAN), QCT (Open RAN), and Edgecore Networks (Open WiFi), in which these products are also listed on TIP Exchange as a reference to global operators and system integrators. With the validation from TIP, there are also proven track records for such products to be selected by operators in U.S., Europe, and even Africa for deployment.
