The fifth generation mobile network, 5G, is just around the corner. This presents big challenges and opportunities for telecommunications companies. They stand to gain from the much-anticipated upgrade, which highlights faster data rates, reduced latency, better energy saving and more. While telcos are grappling with innovating their product offering, cutting-edge startups and their technologies are driving competitive advantage and shaping the future of telecommunications industry.
Now in its sixth year, KPMG’s Best of British Tech Start-ups (BBTS) competition helps the game changing startups and change makers reveal themselves to the world. Since launching BBTS in 2013, this annual competition has been propelling the game changers, the disruptors, and the tech titans of tomorrow, forward. Some of this year’s BBTS finalists focused on unleashing the potential of 5G technology, as well as big data, cloud, and cyber security to shape the future of the telecommunications industry.
Since 5G integration is on the horizon, the IT community has questioned what it means for the cyber-security landscape. How cyber-security will evolve in a 5G connected world and how to prepare for a fresh wave of cyber threats are major concerns for any business.
Garrison Technology have pioneered an innovative security platform to counter the threat of persistent and targeted attacks, which exploit corporate internet connectivity. David Garfield, CEO at Garrison Technology, tells us more in his interview below.
As a massive roll out of the 5G network is to begin in urban areas, what are the challenges for radio planning engineers?
SenSat Technology can use simulated realities of major urban areas to extract actionable insights using machine learning techniques. This reduces the rollout cost for telecommunications companies for 5G and ultimately, the cost of 5G for consumers. Hear from Lewis Crosbie, CEO at SenSat, explaining how the greatest step-change in mobile will rely on digitisation of the physical world ensuring mobile customers have a great experience.
Trint is a slightly different startup. It uses artificial intelligence (AI) to power its automated voice call transcription platform. During the Best of British Tech Start-ups, Jeff Kofman, founder and CEO, shared how Trint's service could transform today’s mobile voice calls by adding conversation perfect memory. Trint’s AI creates searchable and editable transcripts of a call in minutes.
