Nomor Research GmbH was founded in September 2004 by Dr. Thomas Stockhammer, Dr. Ingo Viering and Prof.-Dr. Joachim Hagenauer, in order to continue a successful cooperation between Siemens AG and TU Munich. Dating back to 1999, the Institute for Communications Engineering, headed by Prof. Hagenauer, started to develop first real-time emulation tools for GPRS, EGPRS, and HSDPA. From that time on Nomor Research GmbH is known for its simulation and demonstration know-how for complex and comprehensive systems such as HSDPA, HSUPA, MBMS, WiMAX, LTE and nowadays 5G. The company continuously worked and is working on tools which enable to demonstrate the emerging and new technologies and leverage their introduction.

Nomor Research’s customized products have been demonstrated successfully at major exhibitions such as 3GSM World Congress Cannes and Barcelona, at CTIA in Las Vegas or at the 3G World Congress in Hong Kong. In 2006 Nomor Research in collaboration with Siemens Networks once again proved its leading position in Mobile Communication research and development with the world's first demonstrations of a running LTE and MBMS network with live applications.
