ANS Technology Innovation Center

Our investment in emerging next-gen technologies to solve the hard enterprise problems provides a foundation for THOUGHT Leadership enabling ANS engineers to develop the skills required to meet today’s emerging technologies and solutions, focusing on advanced emerging network technologies, network optimization, and cyber security. The Innovation Center gives our experts an opportunity to innovate and get hands-on experience with these products and solutions while providing our customers with a multi-vendor, multi-technology sandbox environment with which to experiment with new solutions and test system performance against use cases and requirements. We enable customer challenges both today and tomorrow and integrate them to solve a larger problem set.

The TIC is a playground for our engineers and thought leaders to leverage their knowledge and answer the question, “Can this solve MY problem”.  It gives our Team and customers the chance to create solutions and demonstrate capabilities that solve the “Problem”.  ANS’ TIC is  where innovative ideas are developed through customer problems, interaction and “ideas”.  Through our development of Proof of Value (POVs) we are able to demonstrate how solutions will solve the problem and not be another point solution or bolt on.  Additionally, the TIC is used as a learning environment to keep our engineers fully trained on the latest technologies and applications solving the complex challenges that arise. Enabling greater collaboration between stakeholders, engineers and partners to solve the problem.
