Connectivity delivers the transformative possibilities of digital technologies

We need effective networks and digital infrastructure to deploy technologies at scale and harness the Internet of Things (IoT), removing silos of innovation and barriers to market. Digital Catapult works to level the playing field for businesses, combining our technical and commercial expertise to help build the digital infrastructure of the future.

We do this in two ways:
Creating networks and giving access to hardware and services, ranging from cutting-edge 5G testbeds and Low-Power Wide-Area network (LPWAN) sites to support for development and commercialisation of ideas.

Supporting early stage ecosystem development to stimulate demand, demonstrate innovators’ technical capability and build new business models and operating standards.
