Telefónica awarded for the best NFV/SDN solution at LTE & 5G World Awards 2016

We are proud to announce that our partner Telefónica won the contest for the best NFV/SDN solution at the LTE & 5G World Awards 2016 (, thanks to the work carried out on SDN technologies applied to end-to-end transport networks (from the access to the core).

With respect to the core network segment, Telefónica included a proof-of-concept on multi-layer orchestration carried out together with our partner Sedona Systems. This is a very important outcome related with the activities carried out within the ACINO Project and shows the link with other relevant EU efforts, such as the 5G-Crosshaul Project (in which Telefónica and CREATE-NET are involved as well).


The ACINO EU project is funded by the European Commission within the H2020 Research and Innovation programme, Grant Number 645127.
