In late 2011, the ICT Knowledge Transfer Network's Wireless Technology and Spectrum (ICT KTN WT&S) group recognised that with the completion of the digital switchover in the UK, and future plans for spectrum usage over the next ten years, there was a need for a UK based innovation and test facility.

This research is vital to UK mobile operators that are planning the introduction of 4G to mobile broadband services.
