Faster, more powerful and reliable internet made easy and affordable. Utilize all your available networks and operations simultaneously. This is the message from the startup Celerway. The Norwegian company was recently selected for Innovation Showcase 2014 by the Telecom Council in Silicon Valley. This gives the startup the opportunity to demonstrate their technology for most major Telecom players, media, and investors. They have already been contacted by venture capital funds.

One of the Council’s goals is to support innovation across the industry. They are always scouting for ideas, products, and services that may have a positive impact on the telecom industry and the telecommunications consumer. They know that building a young company in this industry can be a long, expensive process. That is why they have teamed up with several major industry tradeshows to highlighting young, relevant companies and products. This enables startups to participate in major tradeshows with demo space and extra publicity in a conservative way that fits a resource-constrained newcomer. Established telecom companies spend a lot of time, energy, and resources looking for these kinds of companies and innovations, so it makes sense to bring them together at major trade shows.

Celerway originated from a world-leading research lab, Simula Research Laboratory, located at the old airport in Oslo. The software, solutions, and patents have been developed in research projects since 2007. The company was established in 2012. The name is taken from the Latin word celer, which means swift and easy. Hence, Celerway provides products and services making the internet fast, reliable, and easy.

In many places, there are a multitude of wireless networks available, such as WiFi and mobile networks. However, most devices are only connected to one network at a time, which under some circumstances may lead to slower connections, or even disconnections, even though faster networks may be available in the same area. Celerway’s platform is capable of serving whichever of the currently available networks is the fastest, and switches communication sessions over to a faster network when one network fails to perform. In situations in which one network alone cannot provide the capacity required, their platform aggregates capacity of several networks to provide a better service experience.

Celerway is a good example of the innovative power you get when world-leading researchers meet world-class business developers. This fall investors will be invited on board so that sales, marketing, support and negotiations with the big suppliers can be accelerated.
