Fast, flexible and more efficient public services
Imagine a future where public services are delivered for less across a shared network infrastructure. And citizens have access to council services and WiFi wherever they go
Sharing across the local area
Simplify your network infrastructure by bringing a whole host of public sector organisations together on a single network. Implementing a Public Services Network (PSN) infrastructure means you could share a single platform with schools, libraries or even the fire brigade.
And because it’s a shared infrastructure, you’ll save on the time and cost of managing and maintaining your infrastructure.
It’s already happening in Cambridgeshire, where the council has brought together a whole host of partners from the local fire service to Borough Councils and the Citizens Advice Bureau on one network.
“CPSN has been a remarkable success story so far and it keeps on getting better. It’s amazing how quickly mindsets change once conventional barriers are removed.
"The network is already a catalyst for innovation in service delivery – IT is now a way of making things better.
With technological constraints gone, joined-up working and sharing resources has become obvious – even inevitable.”

Collaboration made easy
Whether you’re sharing information between departments or with other public sector organisations, PSN implementation means you’ll be able to work together to deliver more efficient services.
With a virtual private network (VPN) you’ll create a secure private network. You can choose exactly what information you share and control access to make sure people only have access to the resources they need.

Public services 24/7
Bring local services together on one network to give your citizens fast, easy access to the services they need.
It saves on the cost of maintaining a number of separate systems and means citizens can easily access the resources they need, whenever they need them.
Access key resources wherever you are
Open up your organisation to flexible working from virtual call centres that bring together your employees on a single telephone number to an always-on secure VPN that lets your staff log on any time, any place.
It means your people will spend less time travelling between offices and more time in the community delivering services.
It’s great for disaster recovery too, so your people always have access to the network and can go on delivering key public services whatever happens.
