The TADHack Global event, sponsored by Radisys, was held October 21-22, 2023, ahead of Network X, an industry-leading broadband network event for enterprises and telcos.

From 20 hacks developed using EDP, Radisys awarded three winners as the most innovative solutions. The TADHack winners will also present their solutions to industry leaders at Network X.
