Bristol Is Open’s industrial partners use our city-scale R&D digital network to explore how programmable networks can be used to address a variety of challenges in the city of the future.
Local Host & Ecosystem Partners
More than 62,000 people work in digital technology in the Bristol/Bath – more than anywhere else in the UK, outside of London. In this first phase, three organisations have kindly agreed to become Local Host Partners with Bristol Is Open and host optical nodes on their premises: At-Bristol; Watershed & Engine Shed. More Local Host Partners are expected to emerge as the network grows across the West of England, crossing local authority boundaries and connecting four universities. With so many local technology firms, we are working with a growing number of ‘Ecosystem Partners’ as suppliers, and as R&D users.
