Find out about the latest in Networks for the Public Sector.

 

 

Public Sector information technology is changing fast and networks are no exception. The traditional Wide Area Network is fast becoming old hat and new technology like SD-WAN are changing the look and functionality of networks.

  • New demands, like cloud computing, changing the dynamics and security requirements.
  • New working methods which are forcing organisations to re-assess how they access applications and data from any device connected from anywhere.
  • New security regimes being developed to move security away from the connection and into the applications.
  • New standards and recommendations being developed to move from the Public Services Network (PSN) and develop the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) to take advantage of some of the changes.
  • New market expectations, and combined with political demands, that are changing the availability of fibre connectivity and the much-discussed removal of the copper network.
  • New procurement vehicles such as Crown Commercial Service’s Network Services 2 Framework are being released.

So, how do you keep abreast of the developments? How do you make sure that your investments are being made in the right direction? Some or all of the above may impact your network, your organisation and ultimately your ability to deliver services cost effectively

About the Publlic Sector Network Summit

Tuesday 17th September 2019, One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA

Tuesday 24th September 2019, Royal Armouries, Armouries Drive, Leeds LS10 1LT

With discussions around the Future Networks for Government (FN4G) gathering speed, Government Digital Service’s statement that ‘the internet is OK’, a potential shift away from PSN, NHS Digital’s outlines for the future of HSCN and the launch of Network Services 2 there is a growing emphasis on future public sector network services, connectivity and security.

No one solution fits all, and as public sector organisations by their very nature have differing levels of connectivity, security and service requirement we will look to break down and discuss the varied options open to the public sector’s technology departments and teams. We will discuss the potential of cost benefits, increased efficiencies and improvements to public services which can be obtained by the use of current and future network options.
The Public Sector Network Summit will address these issues whilst also focusing on the new Network Services 2 framework and the added benefits to the public sector that this new procurement model provides. Issues around security, zero trust, perimeter defined software and cloud connectivity will also be discussed in detail to provide clarity in this ever changing network landscape.

Attracting circa 200 technology and network professionals from across public sector The Public Sector Networks Summit offers delegates to hear and discuss policies, case-studies on excellent work already taking place around the country, engage with solution providers and network with public sector peers from central and local government, the NHS, emergency services, education and the voluntary sector
