Zeetta Networks reveals new look website

Zeetta Networks has launched its updated website, with a fresh and updated logo to reflect our growing success.

In the short years since the company was founded, Zeetta Networks has doubled in size, moved offices, powered the smart venue vision of Ashton Gate Stadium, provided the foundational technology for a global 5G event, collaborated with Vodafone, Cumulus Networks, and ADVA to deliver a world-first optical trial, and secured not one, but two new projects with the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport: RuralFirst and SmartTourism.

Disrupting expectations at 5G World

Zeetta Networks attended the 5G World Event at the ExCel in London this month, connecting with partners, experts, and potentially collaborators across the three day event. Ian Teasdale, VP of Sales and Marketing, shared: “The theme this year was ‘Define the Network. Connect the Future’ which ties in beautifully with what we’ve been delivering for our partners. 5G World gave us the opportunity to not only share the results of those efforts, but also to connect with other innovators and disruptors from around the world.”

Vodafone deploys TIP’s Voyager in a live network trial to transform optical networks

Vodafone has successfully completed a live network trial in Spain with the Facebook-designed Voyager optical “whitebox” as part of its work with the Telecom Infra Project (TIP). An increased demand for data is driving the need for more scalable and cost-effective infrastructure. To solve that challenge, telecoms operators need a combination of connectivity and scalable and cost-effective fibre-based infrastructure.

Zeetta Networks: driving the UK’s smart credentials

Smart cities have been discussed in academic and corporate settings since the late 1960s: at that point just a dream, a hope of a future in which technology supplements all areas of infrastructure and delivering insight to enhance its population’s lives. Smart cities are a popular topic of conversation: there are magazines and papers dedicated to them, business plans modelled on them, and government recommendations about them.

Creating a programmable stadium – one year on

One year ago, Zeetta Networks was awarded funding by Innovate UK to transform Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol, into a programmable stadium. Now that we are twelve months down the line, we caught up with Head of Technology at Ashton Gate Stadium, Paul Lipscombe, to look back on the advancements that have been made – and his vision for the future.

What’s next for the 5G Testbed?

A month has passed since the Layered Realities Weekend, and it would be easy to assume that the Bristol 5G Testbed project is now over – but far from it. The exploration of 5G with the public was more a celebration of the end of stage 1, and for Zeetta Networks, the real business starts now!

A different approach to problem solving

Thanks to our recent successful bids to be part of the 5G Smart Tourism project, and the 5G RuralFirst project, life at Zeetta Networks has got even busier than it was before! We have some exciting work ahead of us.
