Who we are, what we do & why we do it
Firecell aims at democratizing private 4G & 5G networks worldwide and enabling small and medium-sized enterprises to connect and upgrade their existing industrial facilities / logistic centers in order to gain efficiency and productivity.
Firecell develops, packages and distributes the world’s first open source 4G and 5G radio access and core network software suite enabling manufacturers to deploy and operate private networks to connect their factories (Industry 4.0 & IOT).
Firecell was created in 2021 with the help of its founding shareholder Eurecom, a private R&D Lab that developed the Open Air Interface source code. Firecell has assembled a team of telecom experts with the ambition of building the reference of open source private networks.
With several contracts worth a million dollars signed in only 6 months, Firecell’s original approach proves to attract many market players looking for flexibility, transparency and independence in the development of their 4G and 5G offers.
Firecell was recently selected by the US accelerator Alchemist, specialist in B2B startups to accelerate our traction. That’s why we need you!
