Major future telecoms research boost is announced by the UKRI. Nquiringminds is part of a major investment programme led by the £70 million Technology Missions Fund (TMF) Future Telecoms Mission to support the development of technologies that will be crucial to future telecoms networks.

This £70 million funding boost will help drive the UK in the next wave of future telecoms technology [1].

As part of this, NquiringMinds is developing new technology that underpins network-of-networks, with novel identity models and zero-trust security.

Nick Allott, CEO of NquiringMinds comments: “The identity model within telecoms is somewhat antiquated. For future networks to be more secure, more usable and support more flexible business models we need innovation. Our concept of continuous assurance, builds on some innovative work that has been developed within NIST [2]. We are excited about this opportunity to develop and deploy substantive innovation in this space”.

CAHN will develop new architectures working across networks. It will use advanced notions of identity and distributed credentials, combined with dynamic (AI) reasoning to dynamically infer trustworthiness and assurance. We will work with many different use case and endpoints, with end devices  that include Digital Secure by Design capability. These are devices using specialised silicon that protects against memory vulnerabilities; technology spearheaded by University of Cambridge and ARM [3][4].

NquiringMinds is attending Mobile World Congress MWC this year. Mobile World Congress 2024 is regarded as one of the largest annual trade fairs for the mobile technology and development industry sector. The trade fair 26th to the 29th of February at Fira Gran Via, Barcelona.
