The funding comes after Simnovus, which specializes in software-based validation tools for 4G and 5G Radio Access Networks (RAN), unveiled a new simulator at the recent Mobile World Congress in Spain.

“We are building an ecosystem of software-based products that are disrupting traditional methods of validation of 3GPP [ 3rd Generation Partnership Project] standards set for 5G and future generations of cellular technology, “ said Saurav Jha, CEO of Simnovus, in the announcement. “This significant investment will fuel our drive for continuous innovation, enabling us to expedite the launch of our highly anticipated products and expand our business presence across North America and other regions. We will increase our research and development efforts, attract top talent to join our team, and establish strategic partnerships to strengthen our market position and capitalize on emerging opportunities.”
