Incelligent is on proactive network management. This relies on machine learning, predictive analytics, or, in general, cognitive technologies. Incelligent inherited (and then enhanced) pertinent know-how from WINGS ICT Solutions (one of the founding entities). WINGS validated its technologies through collaborations with industries, but at a large scale through its involvement in EC projects, e.g., CREW (Cognitive Radio Experimentation World, http://www.crew-project.eu/content/ict-2013). In the context of CREW, WINGS matured its cognitive/machine-learning/self-x technologies, by realizing diverse experiments, involving actual experiments with realistic conditions involving actual testbeds.
