Spotlight on our telecoms activity
All techUK's work is led by our members - keep in touch or get involved by joining one of the groups below.
World-leading communications infrastructure underpins the UK’s aim of an open digital economy. Communications networks are the life-blood of the UK’s digital applications and services, and a key component of this ambition will be in incentivising investment and innovation. techUK’s Communications Infrastructure Programme brings together FTSE 100 companies and SMEs from across the sector - fixed, wireless, mobile, satellite operators, equipment suppliers - to advocate a connected future for all.
Previously known as the 5G Ecosystem, this working group examines the opportunities and benefits advanced communications services can offer to different industry verticals, such as manufacturing, transport, health and social care, media and agriculture. We take a technology neutral approach to exploring this ecosystem, acknowledging that user requirements remain front and centre in delivering telecoms services, rather than prescribe an architecture or solution.
techUK’s Telecoms Security and Diversification Working Group brings members from our telecoms network operators, equipment vendors, system, and cyber security companies together to help formulate how industry should respond to the Government’s Telecoms Security activity. Covering both fixed and wireless infrastructure, the working group explores topics such as the 5G core, complexity, regulation, security, resilience and risk management and private networks to determine industry best practice.
The home of telecoms infrastructure deployment at techUK, covering fixed and mobile infrastructure. The Group focuses on the uptake of the deployment of fibre and radio, including 5G, networks through engagement and collaboration with local authorities, working with techUK’s Local Government Programme, creating a forum all stakeholders to convene and share knowledge and best practice.
The Position, Navigation and Timing Committee (PNTC) looks at the technology, regulatory and policy issues, development and investment opportunities, and applications and services of satellite-based location technology.
The joint techUK/UKspace Satellite Telecommunications Committee meets quarterly to consider matters related to satellite telecoms from research and development, including the European ARTES programme, to services and applications including the provision and marketing of satellite broadband, satellite IOT, and broadcasting infrastructure and services both in the UK and overseas.

Our future networks: Motivating and maintaining telecoms diversification - the techUK podcast
In this episode of the techUK podcast, we are joined by the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Chair of the Science and Technology Committee, to discuss the recent publication of the report: 5G market diversification and wider lessons for critical and emerging technologies. The episode also features a roundtable discussion with Attilio Zani – Telecom Infra Project, Peter Claydon - Picocom, and Helen Duncan on open and disaggregated networks, including security challenges and the importance of testing, fostering a cohesive ecosystem and how the UK can set the right path in motivating and maintaining telecoms supply chain diversification.
