One of Bristol’s leading high tech companies has been awarded £1 million from the West of England’s Growth Fund to accelerate development and marketing of its gigabit wireless technology.

Blu Wireless Technology (BWT) is a silicon intellectual property (IP) company developing low cost, gigabit wireless communications technology. The initial markets for BWT’s technology include the emerging 60GHz ‘WiGig’ addition to the WiFi family, which will enable large video files to be transferred onto mobile phones at up to 7Gbps – 20 times faster than existing WiFi; as well as the creation of high-speed wireless links for the latest 4G mobile networks based around small cells. These low cost small cells will be mounted on street furniture such as signs and street lamps. BWT is already starting work on applying their uniquely flexible technology to the emerging 5G telecommunications standard.
