The Westcott 5G Step-out Centre (SoC) offers a unique 5G facility to test and develop new services and products by accessing the latest wireless applications service equipment and satellite data without the need to invest in expensive infrastructure.
Westcott provides a secure, controlled environment in a rural location with poor terrestrial coverage, allowing for testing of new infrastructure without the risk of causing interference to existing systems.
The West Business Innovation Centre will complement the 5G Step-Out Centre and the Westcott Business Incubation Centre and will be funded by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (Bucks LEP).
Subject to planning permission, the Innovation Centre will include a 12,000 sq ft office and engineering training facility that will be developed and let to The Satellite Applications Catapult on a 15 year lease.
