Competition to Find 10 Best Radio Access Demos

BT and Lime Microsystems invite all backers of the LimeSDR, LimeNET and LimeSDR Mini campaigns to enter a competition to find the best 10 radio access demos. These could be based around cellular, Wi-Fi, or any other type of system that can be used in providing wireless access. The creators of the selected demos will receive a LimeSDR with Aluminium Kit and, where a commercial opportunity exists, the developers could receive an invitation to work with BT and Lime to further develop the application and publish it via the LimeNET app store.


The criteria for entries are as follows:

  • Uses LimeSDR-based hardware
  • Built using open source technologies
  • Is either an application not previously demonstrated via a campaign update or on, or at least meaningfully builds on a previous demo.

Regarding this last point, if you are unsure you should check the updates for the LimeSDR, LimeNET, and LimeSDR Mini campaigns, along with the Myriad-RF blog and forums.


To enter, please upload a video of your demo to YouTube, tag it with "LimeSDR" and "RAN Forum," and post a link with a few details to support your entry to the Myriad-RF RAN Forum.

The closing date for entries is 31st January 2018. Please note that you are not expected to fully complete your application by this date, but you should present it so that it can be judged in terms of the level of innovation and viability for implementation in a reasonable timescale.


Entries will be judged by BT and the winners will be announced by 14th February 2018.
