Solve the pain Point of Vertical Industry Core Network demand

Most of the 5G applications in the industrial Internet and the Internet of things, with obvious vertical industry, personalized, localized characteristics, there are greater requirements for network security, data confidentiality and so on. 
5G research experts point out that, unlike the large-scale unified platform in the 4G era, the thousands of industries in the 5G era need miniaturized, lightweight, and highly customizable core network products. In this case, the public network of large operators, as a standardized service, often can not meet the personalized needs of various vertical industries.

And this is the pain point of the current 5G demand in many industries-communications equipment giants mainly serve large operators, unable to meet the needs of many vertical industries to build their own private networks, as well as the needs of many small and medium-sized operators around the world. 
From 2G, 3G, 4G to 5G core network, IPLOOK has long provided cost-effective customized services for customers in these markets, and has been highly recognized by customers at home and abroad. 

In the service, IPLOOK can respond quickly, meet the customization needs of customers, and realize the smooth upgrade of products. IPLOOK provides customers in the vertical industry with non-standardized integration solutions, such as meeting the needs of mines using 5G technology to implement underground unmanned operations.


Core network services have been provided to 30 million people worldwide. 

In the communications industry, the core network is a complicated, high threshold products, from 2G to 5G, the global core network suppliers for decades is only Huawei, ZTE, Nokia, Ericsson and others. 

Besides Huawei and ZTE, IPLOOK is the main core network supplier in China, with the Internet accessing certificate from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Since 2012, IPLOOK has been committed to providing customers with the best core network products and solutions. In China, the main customer group that IPLOOK faces is the industry special network, and the core network can be used in mining, railway, power, safety and education industries.

Overseas, IPLOOK mainly provides core network services for three types of customers: MVNO, WISP and MNO.

At present, IPLOOK has developed markets in more than 30 countries in Southeast Asia, Middle East, North America, Oceania, Europe and other regions, and has realized EPC and IMS system commercial deployment of more than 120 telecom companies and operators.

Always focus on the core network to help customers connect to the world

5G has begun to change our work and life. 
In the field of VR, 5G technology will stimulate the popularity of VR devices, and the three major operators regard 5G + cloud VR as an important development direction. In the future, VR will open up rich imagination for us in the aspects of offline experience, online shopping, culture and entertainment, etc. 


5G will also become the infrastructure for industrial Internet and intelligent manufacturing upgrades. Recently, Shenzhen is hot to solicit "5G + industrial Internet" application pilot. The large broadband, low delay and high reliability of 5G will insert wings for the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry. 

In the 5G era, and even in the future 6G and 7G era, IPLOOK will continue to focus on core network research and development, play the role of "channel" in communication services, help customers connect to the world, improve their lives, and move towards a better future.
