UK Connect has been officially granted '5G for Enterprise Branch Specialisation’ by Cradlepoint

The communications provider becomes the only company currently permitted to install Cradlepoint systems for establishing 5G networks on UK residential and commercial construction sites. 

This recognition helps elevate UK Connect as a key player in the rollout of 5G technology for the sector’s operations, which will enable clearer and faster on-site communication and higher quality work. 

Through UK Connect’s sole dedication to the UK construction industry, it will also be able to help foster a greater understanding of the technology’s potential among contractors and developers.  

It will demonstrate how 5G can directly deliver greater digital adoption, leading to increased ROI from a safer, smarter and more efficient construction journey.

Darryl Brick, VP Partner Sales, EMEA from Cradlepoint said its 5G for Enterprise Branch Specialised partners have invested in the 5G transformation and offer its customers services tailored to the new 5G wireless WAN.

"UK Connect is a highly skilled Cradlepoint partner and their expertise will guide our customers through the Pathway to 5G and help evolve their networks successfully," he said. "The team of dedicated sales and technical professionals at UK Connect, as well as their expertise in several key vertical markets, will help us guide customers on the journey beyond the wires.“ 

PJ Farr, UK Connect’s Managing Director, said receiving the specialisation certification was "a game-changer".

"It represents a major milestone in the company’s history, positioning us at the forefront of the UK’s 5G rollout and bringing its power and potential to the country’s vibrant community of housebuilders and developers," he said. "We look forward to working even closer with Cradlepoint, further demonstrating our unrivalled expertise in construction connectivity provision."

UK Connect recently announced it is recruiting for an Apprentice 1st Line Support Analyst in partnership with ITP Apprenticeships (click here).
