Last year, in 2018, OpenReach announced the closure of the telephone network in six years’ time at the end of 2025. Since the announcement, a series of consultations have been taking place with Industry.
The impact of the removal of the copper network, including tail circuits, telephone lines and more will be the biggest shakeup for UK telecoms since the privatisation of British Telecom in 1984. The rush to get Britain fibred is being led by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and is becoming increasingly important in the event of Brexit to ensure that the UK is ready to take on the world.
In this episode we try to bring to up to date with the progress so far.
In this episode we explore the transition and migration of Unified Communications services into the workplace. We explore what we mean by Unified Communications, the adoption of technology, the transition to the Digital Workplace and whether you need something as sophisticated as Microsoft Teams or would a mobile phone and Slack meet the requirements of the Millennials entering the workplace. Is the power to adopt in the hands of the ICT function or is it in the hands of the Users?
In the last episode of the Innopsis podcast, we brought you the view of a first time SME applicant, Opus Telecom, on their application for a major CCS Framework – Network Services 2.
Whilst Opus had experience of applying for G-Cloud, the experience was very different for Network Services.
In this episode we bring you the view of a more seasoned applicant, Telefonica O2. This is not the first application for Telefonica O2, nor are they an SME. So how did the application for Network Services 2 impact them? What did they think had improved? What still needs work?
In this podcast, we talk to Craig Walden of Opus Telecom, an SME and a new potential supplier to the framework, about his experience about applying for a Framework. What was good and what could have been better?
