TEAC (TIP Ecosystem Acceleration Centre) UK is a partnership between BT and TIP providing a UK hub for developing next-generation telecoms technology.
The TEAC runs an annual competition for telco start-ups which is organised by Applied Research's Dean Gasson. The winners of the TEAC get the opportunity to collaborate with BT Research for the next 12-18 months, developing their solutions. They also get the opportunity to join Innovation Martlesham, the hi-tech cluster at Adastral Park, and enjoy the benefits like business support, mentoring, and investment opportunities. There are also other collaborative and networking opportunities in the TIP and TEAC communities that winners get access to.

This year, we welcomed six shortlisted companies from the fields of edge computing and 5G private network to the final at the BT Tower, London on 17 January.
The great thing about our competition is that it unearths fantastic telco innovation right here in the UK, but this year we had applications from as far away as Australia. We’re really looking forward to the next 12-18 months with winners DoubleME and Ori Industries and seeing what we can accomplish together.

Ori Industries (above) are exploring a ‘cloud native edge compute’ solution - rethinking how software interacts with physical global infrastructure to build an incredibly fast and intelligent cloud that can seamlessly compute anywhere.

DoubleMe are working on a potentially new way of communicating, by capturing volumetric data on individuals through a single camera and machine learning. They use edge compute to process the data and a holographic image is displayed to the receiving party. Think Star Wars!

Paul Crane, BT Networks Research Director, and judge at the final commented, "The TEAC UK Wave 3 finals day was very exciting and inspirational. The six finalists were very high quality, demonstrating the possibilities of edge computing and 5G private networks. The high standard of the entries made the judging very challenging. Congratulations to the winners, DoubleMe and Ori industries!"
