Accelerated rollout of advanced wireless networks, including 5G, will bring benefits to the UK economy and communities across the country. There are a number of challenges in deployment of wireless networks, and this Digital Connectivity Infrastructure Accelerator (DCIA) project specifically explores those involved in using publicly owned infrastructure assets to support the roll out of advanced wireless connectivity.

Within the DCIA project, the Department for Culture, Media & Sport and its cross-government partners aim to support implementation of a national Digital Platform for mapping and brokerage of publicly owned assets for use in the rollout of wireless communication networks. The main aim of the Digital Platform is to make transactions between public sector asset owners and telecommunications companies as frictionless as possible, so to lower the costs of site acquisition and to accelerate the rollout of digital connectivity.

Join this event to find out how DCMS will build on extensive market engagement and the development of a standardised specification for use of Digital Asset Management Platforms by places and wireless infrastructure providers. This briefing event will give insights into the Pilot Phase of the project.
