Zeetta Networks welcomes British Government Ambitious Target for 5G and Full Fibre gigabit Internet in the UK
Zeetta Networks is one of the British companies who have been closely involved in achieving this goal. For example, the company participates in two projects as part of the UK Government’s 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme.
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.
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.”
After attending the SEP Scaleup Summit at the Stock Exchange, London, Zeetta Networks CEO Vassilis Seferidis shared his insight as the CEO of a rising technology company.
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 will be attending Stadium Business Summit 2018 at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, 12-13th June 2018, bringing our technical expertise and smart stadium vision to over 350 delegates.
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.
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.
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!
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.
With increasing competition from e-commerce, bricks and mortar retail stores are seeking new ways to attract customers, combining experiential offerings and the personal touch with new technologies in the omnichannel environment.
Zeetta Networks is proud to announce that we are a technology partner in a new £4.3 million 5G RuralFirst project led by Cisco to deliver testbeds and trials to address the pressing challenges of rural 5G.
