HSCN Supplier Webinar – 21st June – Slides

Episode 15- Why have a WAN?

On 20th January 2017, GDS issued a blog which had an impact on the telecoms world. The title of the blog; The Internet is Ok, reported that the Government’s Technology Leaders Network had decided that all Government data should traverse the Internet rather than the secure Public Services Network (PSN) designed by the Cabinet Office 7 years previously.

Fourteen months later, GDS announced that they have a budget of over a third of a million pounds to hire consultants to discover the User Need. We will see if this changes from the ones quoted by Keith last year from the start of the PSN project. The consultants work is targeted to start in the Summer and last until the end of 2018. Following this, it is suggested that an automated mechanism is created to implement common standards, architectural patterns, guidance and service process to test and deploy effectively a replacement for PSN.
