Zeetta Networks Shortlisted for Prestigious TMF Excellence Awards


Bristol 28th March 2019:  Zeetta Networks has been selected for the ‘Disruptive Innovation Award’, one of the globally prestigious TMF Excellence Awards, for NetOS Rapide.

Zeetta Networks were one of the first companies to commercially provide a sliced network in 2016 at Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium. They were selected by TMF for their impressive innovation around automation, simplification and visualization of temporary or ‘pop-up’ networks. They have continued to innovate and in December 2018 delivered a temporary or ‘pop-up’ network at a live sporting event which delivered public Wi-Fi, connectivity for electronic point-of-sale machines, and media connectivity for live internet TV streaming.

While many companies innovate to solve problems, Zeetta Networks has been recognised for their unparalleled ability to create a solution with a new business model. NetOS Rapide was developed agilely from Zeetta’s enterprise solution products: Visualise, Optimise and Automate,  with enhancements to support rapid deployment through a simple and fully automated process.


Vassilis Seferidis, CEO of Zeetta Networks, commented:

“The TMF Excellence Awards are considered to be a golden standard throughout the industry, and it’s a real honour to be included in the select group of shortlisted companies that are working to make tangible differences through innovation. We at Zeetta Networks are constantly driven by the question ‘How can we creatively solve problems?’ and our disruptive nature has seen our technology utilised across the globe. We hope to share more of our ideas and innovations at the TMF Excellence Awards.”


Since 2007, the TMF Excellence Awards have recognised the world’s leading companies for their innovation and achievements across many verticals: from digital transformation to customer centricity, to product and service innovation to cross-industry partnering and collaboration.


“Congratulations to the finalists of the TM Forum Excellence Awards 2019.

About Zeetta Networks

Zeetta Networks enables smarter networks. The company leads the development of open, programmable networks based on an advanced, patent-protected software controller called NetOS® that provides full network visibility, control and management through a single-pane-of-glass.

NetOS® enables network splicing® of any combination of network technologies (Fixed, Wireless and low-power IoT) to create a single virtualised network topology that can be then sliced into network slices (sub-networks) on-demand to meet specific user or application requirements. The ability to dynamically slice and splice the network resources across wireless and fixed technologies is protected by the company’s patents.

Zeetta Networks commercially deployed NetOS® in several enterprise projects across Europe and successfully demonstrated 5G Network Slicing in early 5G testbeds like the 5G Smart Tourism and 5G Rural First projects. NetOS® allows enterprises and service providers to control their fixed and wireless networks seamlessly, driving operational efficiencies and creating new monetisation opportunities. With the additional of NetOS Rapide, Zeetta Networks has extended its NetOS® product portfolio to support the creation and control of ad-hoc or “pop-up” networks.
