Dallas, TX. December 6th, 2021: iLink Digital, a strategy-led enterprise delivering next-gen technology services, is pleased to announce a global partnership with the University of Texas, Dallas (UTD). Graduate and Undergraduate students from UTD are working with iLink experts on IoT, 5G and Multi-Edge Computing (MEC) in this major initiative called MIDAS. This opportunity will enhance the student learning experience in doing real life end-to-end projects.
Students will be able to gain valuable project knowledge and deep skills in the areas of technology strategy, product ideation, customer experience, technology development and deployment. Upon completing their association with the MIDAS project they will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding to tackle the most pressing challenges that the industry faces today.
“iLink is also working to get the students involved with other initiatives around MIDAS deployment for organizations in the Telecom space like Verizon and AT&T with the support of the University. This particular iLink-UTD partnership is an example of our deep ties and shared commitment to bring the best learning experience and training opportunities to the students” added Anand Singh, CEO of iLink Advanced Communications Servies.
Professor Owens with UTD sees the immediate and long-term value of the engagement, “The students have already gained valuable hands-on technical experience that will be very beneficial as they enter the workforce. Not only are they learning about the technical aspects of the project, but they are also afforded the opportunity to work on a very innovative product. The students have enjoyed working with the iLink development team who is both local and internationally located. In doing so they understand the challenges and opportunities of working on a geographically dispersed team. It has been a rewarding experience for me to be able to see the students grow in their confidence and technical abilities throughout the semester. I look forward to future opportunities to partner with iLink Digital.” “
