Advanced Communications Services Working Group

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.

Communications Infrastructure and Services

techUK brings together government, the regulator, telecom companies and its stakeholders to help the UK maximise the benefits of adopting advanced communications services, maintain confidence in the security and resilience of our networks, and explore future telecoms. We do so to lower the cost to the sector of deployment, spur innovation and unlock value for all parties in connectivity. This is delivered through a mix of thought leadership, multilateral engagement and ecosystem building.

Data centres

Data centres provide the core infrastructure that underpins all digital activity across government, business and community. techUK’s award-winning programme provides a collective voice for UK operators. We work with government to improve the business environment for our members. To date we have saved UK operators over £150M, alerted them to business risks, mitigated regulatory impacts and raised awareness, most recently negotiating key worker status for the sector.
