Delivering transformation with 5G

Making 5G a reality requires a transformation in conceptualisation, planning, and implementation. Higher speeds and new capabilities and approaches to connectivity solutions now allow more deployments at scale, and the creation of new ecosystems and business models.

We leverage our technical communications knowledge and deep domain expertise in edge computing, data analytics, and AI to deliver the insights you need in real time, enabling you to transform your business and inform your agenda. We have developed use cases across a range of industry sectors, including local government, manufacturing, maintenance, logistics, utilities and healthcare, all underpinned by business cases to deliver tangible benefits.

Integrating 5G into your business

As a 5G ecosystem integrator, we understand the importance of collaborative planning for the success of 5G. We work closely with you to define your transformation journey and bring new perspectives on your data and processes, helping you to realise the opportunities that 5G can bring to your business and customers.

Our SensorInsight360 end-to-end IoT platform works alongside 5G connectivity to enable you to realise your use cases and deliver transformational business change.

We are trusted to deliver complex and mission critical systems, and we can help you to develop and implement a realistic and achievable digital strategy and roadmap that will bring real value to your business.

We have a track record of working with partners to deploy network solutions to meet your needs and underpin the services and use cases you need to run your business efficiently. 

At the network implementation stage, we work with you to carry out detailed radio surveys, to ensure you have the coverage you need on site. Our Satellite experience enables us to deploy hybrid backhaul solutions where coverage is poor by beaming connectivity to rural areas from space, and we also use fibre or dedicated radio where available.

We take care of the whole end-to-end experience, from initial meeting through planning and deployment of the service, to ensuring it operates smoothly, leaving you to focus on running your business.

Satellite Communications is used to provide global connectivity but it can also play an important role alongside terrestrial networks in delivering broader access to 5G. Satcoms simplifies the creation of seamless hybrid 5G networks, which allow the delivery of new applications to all industries.

As a leading provider of satellite ground segment software and systems integration, we help you to design large-scale hybrid networks using. We build proof-of-concept systems incorporating satellite or HAPS networks into terrestrial networks for improved coverage, dedicated applications or high-security resilient private networks.

With multiple commercial satellite services available, we can help you make the right decisions on backhaul technology, for both fixed and mobile deployments.

More and more enterprises are taking control of their digital transformation by creating their own fit-for-purpose, secure 5G mobile private network.

We help you with an end-to-end approach that includes:

  • Digital advisory services and consulting, aligning real business cases to your specific business outcomes to create an achievable roadmap
  • Integration of your 5G ecosystem by coordinating all of the key partnerships around it
  • Decades of expertise in operational support, IT, cyber security and Business Process Engineering to bring everything together.

Our 5G partner ecosystem

We have the expertise to bring together all key stakeholders to create a 5G ecosystem of experts, network operators, equipment vendors, policy makers, cloud providers and end-users.

We are part of the teams responsible for two Cambridge Wireless Special Interest Groups (SIG):

  • the Virtual Networks SIG, set up to explore how 5G will expand the concept of the software-defined virtual network;
  • and the Non-Terrestrial Networks SIG, created to explore the opportunities to transform the economies of areas previously difficult to connect by providing reliable connectivity.

We are a member of UK Telecoms Innovation Network (UKTIN), the innovation network for the Communications sector.

We are a member of techUK and chair their Telecoms Resilience & Security Working Group for 5G. In 2022, we contributed to their Private Networks: a new user guide by techUK.

In 2020, in partnership with UK5G ,we launched the ‘Connect to Innovate’ white paper  on the opportunities that 5G-enabled technologies can bring to transform the UK water sector and across the UK.
