Input & Output

Start-up Ecosystem

UpRamp has built an ecosystem designed to connect startups and entrepreneurs with the connectivity industry through a variety of programs for every stage of the entrepreneurial life cycle. UpRamp can help them identify, test, develop and commercialize new technologies that can benefit the entire cable industry and beyond.

Input & Output


New ideas and partnerships are how we cultivate innovation. By joining forces with another company to pursue an idea, we can share unique skillsets, lower costs and mitigate risk, thus amplifying our chances of achieving groundbreaking results.

Commercialization Output


By keeping our technology royalty-free (or very low fee) and our software open source, we make it equally accessible to everyone. Because companies and developers are free to build on each other's technology, without the fear of having to pay royalties, doors are opened for new improvements and innovations that may have not been possible

Commercialization Output

Government Agencies

We work with government agencies to understand public policy priorities and educate policymakers on new and emerging technologies. Increased alignment between industry and governments enables a more rapid pace of technological innovation and deployment.

Commercialization Output

Standard Bodies

Standards bodies provide the on-ramp to the global information and communication technology marketplace, enabling consumers and network operators to easily access our innovations. Engagement in these organizations promotes scale and scope and lowers the cost of incorporating new technologies.

Input & Output


By partnering with our vendor community, we are able to bring industry awareness to their research, reduce their R&D risk and bring products to market quickly and cost effectively.

Input & Output


We look to our members to identify issues in the cable industry. As field experts, they’re in the best position to know which problems need to be solved now and which ones to watch out for in the future. This is often the first step in our innovation process.

Innovation Input

University Research

We connect professors, students, and technical leaders with the most interesting problems in the cable industry, providing resources, expertise, data, laboratory, and real-life environments for discovering and testing bright new ideas.
