Digital Infrastructure Project Update

 

Digital Infrastructure Tender Award:

 

On 24th September 2018 a contract was awarded to CUBE Ultra ltd in partnership with Innovation Point to deliver the Digital Infrastructure 5 Case Business Plan and supporting research. A secondary element of the contract will be to support the full development of a regional bid to LFFN Wave 3 which was launched in the summer 2018. An inception meeting was held w/c 1st October and the contract will run to the end of April 2018.

 

Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN):

 

Work to progress a regional LFFN bid to the Wave 3 competition has begun and an initial expression of interest was submitted to, and accepted by, DCMS at the end of September 2018. The regional bid is being led by Swansea Council who, with the support of CUBE Ultra ltd, will be developing the full bid for submission to DCMS later this year. Discussions with DCMS have continued to emphasise preference for larger, regional bids and a regional data gathering exercise is underway to ensure the needs and requirements of all areas of the Region are reflected.

Pan Wales group established, led by Innovation Point, to discuss and explore opportunities for Wales to harness and exploit deployment of 5G technologies. The SBCD Region has advanced thinking on 5G and was represented on the group when it met for the first time earlier this month.
