5G, Brexit and Frameworks

A roundtable discussion hosted by Lynne Magennis with Michael Bowyer and Afshin Attari


Ian was recently asked to give a speech at Child & Co Bank, which is one of these small historic banks owned by the RBS NatWest. The event was co-organised by Evolution Capital, and the audience were owners of technology businesses. Having bought over 25 tech companies, they wanted Ian’s view on what the impact of Brexit would be on the appetite for UK technology acquisitions.

Networking at the Summit

We are getting used to seeing in the news how the politicians are going to ensure that all the homes and offices in Great Britain are going to have 100% high speed fibre internet access in an ever-decreasing timescale plus the progress of the removal of the existing copper network in an even shorter timescale. Add to this the initial roll out of the various 5G networks, with or without Huawei, plus declared strategy statements that the ‘Internet is Ok’ and ‘Internet First’ for Government data, we have a cocktail of change which is causing both Suppliers and Customers to re-think their own strategy.          
The Public Sector Networking Summits in London and Leeds are a great opportunity for the network suppliers and public sector customers to come together to talk about the changing customer needs, movements in technology and standards and the initiatives being taken by GDS, CCS and NHS-Digital to bring the different areas together. The two Summits at One Great George Street in London on 17thSeptember and a week later on 24thSeptember at Royal Armouries in Leeds are free for the Public Sector to attend. Industry sponsors include Capita, Exponential-e, KCOM, MLL Telecom, Redcentric, The Networking People, Virgin Media Business and Adept amongst others.
It is with Adept that Lynne Magennis is talking to today. Adept have made a transformation from a Calls and Lines SME reseller into a mid-market supplier of a range of technologies. Paul Mathews, the Head of Business Development, is to talk about those changes.
