Zeetta Networks Deploys New Tech For Managing 5G Networks At UK Government-Backed 5G-ENCODE


Zeetta Networks has deployed a new release of its network orchestration software targeting private cellular networks, which gives unified control and management of both Mobile (5G, LTE) and Wi-Fi networks, all from a single pane of glass.

The new technology has been deployed at 5G-ENCODE, a project that aims to make the benefits of 5G a reality for UK manufacturers. 5G-ENCODE is the UK’s largest trial of industrial 5G and one of the UK Government’s biggest investments in 5G for manufacturing to date.

The technology has already been tested with successful outcomes in large scale deployments, including smart city initiatives, Bristol is Open and Bournemouth Smart Place, and multi-purpose venues including Ashton Gate stadium.

The homegrown British software has been developed based on open standards, meaning it is compatible with O-RAN (Open Radio Access Networks) and other open networking technologies, making it both technology and vendor agnostic.

This directly supports the UK government’s recent 5G Supply Chain Diversification Strategy, which advocates deployment models based on open interfaces and interoperable standards.
