Open Generation


The revolutionary power of next-generation networks is shifting paradigms around how businesses operate and interact with people. Open Generation’s core mission is to bridge private telecom industry interests with scientific progress, economic stability, and our democratic way of life.

Open Generation was founded to ensure the United States plays a leadership role in advanced telecommunications technologies. Our approach simultaneously stimulates technology breakthroughs while enabling standards and experimentation that inform policy. Members accelerate innovation through a collaborative approach that:


  • Identifies specific use case challenges that can benefit from 5G.
  • Develops revolutionary architecture solutions to overcome those challenges.
  • Implements testbeds and experiments to demonstrate and validate the solutions.

4G drove the creation of the app economy and had tremendous impact on consumers. Now, 5G is transforming how businesses work. Ultra low latency, high reliability, plus high device density systems are transforming automation, which translates to a greater reliance on artificial intelligence (AI) to operate these systems and robots to perform tasks. The maturation of automation and machine-to-machine communications is more transformative than any previous network generation. Members of Open Generation are committed to collaborative research and experimentation that will bring the 5G future, faster.
