Polaris Networks, a provider of wireless 4G and 5G packet core solutions and test tools entered into a partnership agreement with Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) to offer software solutions to organizations interested in conducting research and trials for wireless technologies.

Because Polaris started developing its 5G-related products almost three years ago when 5G was at a very nascent stage, the company anticipates that a lot of organizations focused on path-breaking research in the field will benefit from what it has to offer.

The PAWR program, co-led by US Ignite and Northeastern University, is supported by several industry consortium partners, who contribute equipment, software, money and expertise towards the program. Polaris Networks is amongst the latest to become a PAWR partner.

“Testing 4G and 5G software stacks at scale with new radio hardware, antenna arrays and on a variety of spectrum bands is critical for advancing 5G networks and beyond in the U.S.,” said Joe Kochan, PAWR program director and chief operating officer (COO), US Ignite. “We’re thrilled to welcome Polaris to the PAWR program and look forward to the exciting research and development work their software solutions will enable.”

With the recent announcement of the Aerial Experimentation and Research Platform for Advanced Wireless (AERPAW) initiative in Raleigh, North Carolina, Polaris looks forward to showcasing its various 4G and 5G solutions as it collaborates with the AERPAW team while the details of the platform are defined over the next few months.
