Secure, intelligent, plug and play innovation for mobility and IoT – Innovative security technology that brings secure computation, storage, and communication to a wide variety of devices, and can provide a full end-to-end solution in telecom network environments. (Bluechip Systems)

Disruptive class of video optimization tools – Video optimization tools that deliver 30 to 80 percent smaller videos compared to the most optimal in the industry, while maintaining the same perceptible quality. Five years of video analyses and research in conjunction with EPFL Switzerland led to this patent-pending, codec-agnostic technology that uses machine learning and automates the process of choosing the right set of encoding parameters for a video based on its content. (Crunch Media Works)

‘Deploy Anywhere’ high-density, distributed compute capabilities – Enabled by eco-friendly, micro-data centers based on a revolutionary liquid immersion cooling solution that cuts power by as much as 60 percent, increases density by as much at 80 percent and extends the reach of high-powered, multi-access, edge compute solutions to virtually any environment to enable new enterprise services. (Engineered Fluids)

Cloud-based Spectrum Controller – Pioneering Spectrum Controller that delivers software-defined spectrum through a cloud-based Spectrum Access System (SAS) empowering a revolution in shared spectrum possibilities on CBRS 3.5 GHz and future bands. (Federated Wireless)

Simplified deployment and management of MEC, Data Centers, and IoT assets – Physical and virtual 3-D visualization tool for data center modeling, planning, and operating that enables the easy, cost effective, and predictable deployment of everything from distributed compute capabilities to remote surveillance cameras for MEC, data centers and IoT. (nuPSYS)

Mobile data and traffic management – Proven track record of delivering innovation and consistent quality of experience for video and all-IP traffic for mobile data access. The fully NFV solution enables mobile operators to maximize their network, to manage and monetize IP traffic (encrypted & unencrypted) at the lowest total cost of ownership. (Openwave Mobility)
