North is a highly technical integrated technology specialist delivering end-to-end networking and IoT application design, implementation, support, and managed services throughout the UK. North prides itself on driving innovation and leading the industry in adoption of emerging technologies. Led by CEO, Glen Williams, North has over 270 staff, of which around 160 provide technical services.
North specialises in the provision of connectivity within complex environments where multiple layers of connectivity are required (e.g. Wi-Fi, IoT, 5G etc). The necessity of the services offering combined with the firm’s unique level of network architecture capability and end-to-end proposition has enabled it to build long-term, multi-year partnerships with a portfolio of blue-chip partners, including Aruba, Cisco and Nokia. North pioneered a ground-breaking pilot with the latter in February 2021, which will see 5G technology deployed in an operational automotive environment for the very first time in the UK.
