3TEN8 secures carrier agreements to launch AI for network operations

San Jose, CA, March 1, 2017– 3TEN8, has announced that it has secured agreements with several carriers to launch its artificial intelligence for network operations.

The carrier agreements will allow 3TEN8 to launch its proprietary algorithms, which have shown significant accuracy in predicting network outages and performance degradations on wireless networks.

This is an incredibly exciting time for 3TEN8, and a huge step for an industry that has long relied on manual methods to manage wireless networks, a method which accounts for 82% of network downtime, and performance degradations. We will finally be able to apply our proprietary algorithms outside of our labs. Our team has already seen significant positive early indicators, so we are excited to get started.
— Miro Salem, Founder & CEO, 3TEN8

In a world, so reliant on wireless connectivity, this is an exciting step towards using AI to operate the networks that ensure this connectivity, and is a step towards making sure we never hear the words “can you hear me now”, again.

About 3TEN8

3TEN8 was founded by a former Ericsson subject matter expert, and technical advisor, who grew tired of the manual, and tedious methods used to manage wireless networks. Now, with a team of seasoned Stanford data scientists and UCLA neuroscientists, 3TEN8 is focused on harnessing recent advancements in AI and machine learning to change the way people manage and operate networks.

Solving your own problem - A founders story

 

Miro Salem in the founder and CEO of 3TEN8.

3TEN8 were the standout team in the April - June 2014 Program that I led with Citrix. 

Miro is a former LTE engineer and expert @ Ericsson and played a key technical role setting up and optimizing the first LTE networks in the US both with Verizon and AT&T. He started 3TEN8 to solve a problem that he experienced first hand as an LTE engineer. He wants to help LTE teams mange and optimize the performance of their LTE networks. Turns out this is currently a $76B market that is very inefficient.

During the program Miro & team were able to get two paying customers without writing a single line of code and later their Rev 1 software version was being used up 50 times a day by LTE engineers in the field.

Miro's ability to learn new concepts and then apply then to his business successfully are second to none that I have observed. 

At the Innovators Program Demo Day Citrix announced that it would invested $250K in 3TEN8.

About 3Ten8

3TEN8 develops software that helps mobile network operators visualize network performance, analyze subscriber behavior and optimize their wireless networks; a state-of-the-art mobile device is only as functional as its wireless network. Currently, these networks are being managed by basic and inefficient tools. As telecom engineers, we grew tired of the shortcomings of these tools, so we took matters into our hands, dared to defy the status quo and created our own solution. 3TEN8 was founded by former employees of major telecommunications and software corporations. Merging the best of these two disciplines allowed us to develop an inspired and innovative software. By converting network data into easily understood and usable information, we have made it possible for engineers and executives to make more knowledgeable decisions. Ultimately better tools leads to happier engineers, improved networks, less dropped calls, and subsequently, happier customers and increased revenue. 3TEN8 targets 80+ mobile network operators in the U.S. and 800+ worldwide.

Meet the 8 mentors who could help you scale your startup

The Innovators Program is on a mission to transform the workplace and society by creating the right environment for the best and brightest founders to solve important problems.

How do we create that environment?

We set the bar high. The program leverages best practices from lean startup & design thinking as well as lessons from recent successful tech startups like Zenefits, Slack, Cloudera, and others on how to build a customer-centric product that can evolve into a scalable business. We expect the teams to apply these learnings to their startups and make significant progress within a matter of days and weeks. We meet frequently to see how they are doing and help them make adjustments as needed.

We make it easier to focus. The ability to focus is often the difference between success and failure for early-stage startups. Our startups get a $10k grant at the beginning of the program, which means they can fully leverage the accelerator and focus 100% on their startup idea, rather than being distracted by living expenses or other financial obligations. At the end of the program, we will allocate an additional $50K, equity free, and enrollment in an additional three month growth program to the team(s) that have the highest potential of success.

We provide all the benefits of working with corporate partners without the headaches. Red Hat and Citrix provided the $100K startup funding with no strings attached, a unique and hard-to-find display of corporate support. Despite their best intentions, corporate sponsored startup programs often have terms that are not beneficial to the startup’s best interests, e.g equity or exclusivity in return for funding or requirements to use the sponsor’s technology. The $100K startup grant money provided by the sponsors of the Innovators Program comes with no strings attached, giving our founders flexibility to build and iterate according to their vision.

And finally, we provide access to a robust network of entrepreneurial mentors. These mentors are a group of top-notch, highly-talented entrepreneurs, all of whom have graduated from past Innovators Programs themselves.
