Local government public sector network


Enabling organisations to work together

For public sector organisations, managing with reducing budgets and increasing demands is now becoming the norm. An increasing number of organisations are looking to save costs by collaboration with each other - to share physical infrastructure and resources. This can lead to better information and resource sharing, and more efficient ways of working.

One of the key elements in facilitating this is a network infrastructure that enables organisations to work together to reduce the number of separate and often replicated networks and databases.

Public sector organisations need to be able to establish networks to save costs and work more efficiently. As well as being secure, and scalable.

The Public Sector Network (PSN) enables better collaboration. Information can be securely shared across organisations with access based on needs and roles.

What can PSN deliver?

  • Reduced costs via consolidation of multiple networks
  • A platform to shared services, improved collaboration and greater efficiency.
  • Access to cloud based and hosted services
  • More joined up public services
  • Security on the network for Restricted information – IL3 in old terms
