Our mission to enable Universal Wireless and Affordable Connectivity

65% of the worlds population don’t have access to cellular and wireless broadband connectivity. Traditional solutions supplied by a closed group of vendors using expensive hardware are uneconomic for operators to deploy. Lime’s approach based on an open source hardware platform using readily available semiconductors and Lime’s transceiver is becoming the established way forward.

These open source platforms offer unprecedented levels of configurability. They allow system designers to create wireless networking equipment for any mobile or wireless communication standard and provide operators with end to end programmable networks.

Lime is the driving force behind key initiatives to democratise wireless innovation, revolutionise the way that radio access networks are built, bring transparency to spectrum utilisation, and encourage the next generation of wireless engineers.
