SK Telecom Kicks Off TIP Ecosystem Accelerator Center (TEAC) Seoul Wave 2

SAN DIEGO, CA – October 9, 2018 – AirHop Communications is one of the three companies selected to join wave 2 of the TIP Ecosystem Accelerator Center (TEAC) Seoul.

The TEACs are a global, sustainable ecosystem that bring entrepreneurs and innovative investors together to establish the necessary foundation to foster collaboration, accelerate trials, and bring innovative, deployable infrastructure solutions to the telecom industry. There are TEACs in the UK, Paris, Seoul and Germany hosted in partnership with TIP and some of the world’s largest telecom service providers.

“SK Telecom has always been a pioneer and leader in deploying wireless technology innovations,” said Yan Hui, AirHop Communications CEO.  “Their strong support for TIP programs and specifically TEAC Seoul, is testament to this leadership.  We are excited to work with TIP and SK Telecom to align our vision for 5G.”
