Supporting 5G innovation – Deploy a 5G network to test and trial future connected technologies

Our 5G Network as a Service offering has been created to support any organisation to underpin digital transformation. We provide public, private and specialist network services across education, healthcare, defence, logistics and marine & maritime.

The lower latency and high capacity allows prioritisation of ‘real time’ traffic to help deliver more data with increased reliability, prompting faster interactions and improved outcomes.

Any application which requires increased speed, lower latency, higher security or the ability to create dedicated resources for particular applications will benefit from 5G.

Delivery

aql will provision, install and connect 5G radio infrastructure on site - either indoors or as an external mast site deployment.
