Views: 385

The European Commission has approved a Welsh Assembly Government procurement project, which is designed to provide public sector organisations in Wales with a unified, high-bandwidth, high-availability ICT network.

The network will enable public sector organisations ranging from Health and Education to Local Government offices to achieve better value for money through economies of scale. The new network will replace existing networks such as the Lifelong Learning Network used by local authorities, the Metropolitan Area Networks of the Higher and Further Education sector and the Digital All-Wales Network utilised by NHS Wales. The network aims to improve the efficient delivery of a range of services to people across Wales by giving Public Service organisations access to a high availability, high bandwidth managed network with huge potential for shared services and improved data sharing.
