BT

At BT we support the objectives of PSN to save money and enable better, more efficient and joined-up public services.  We can help to reduce costs by helping you consolidate multiple networks, removing duplication and using common, inter-operable services.  We’re already doing this for many customers like the UNICORN regional network.

Having helped define PSN from the outset, we’re now delivering PSN compliant services to hundreds of sites across the UK.  In March 2014, BT became the first service provider to connect a customer to the higher security encrypted PSN service (IPED). This means we know PSN, inside and out.

Our experience and portfolio means we can be trusted to meet your present and future requirements.  We deliver PSN Certified WAN, Voice, Video, GCN and Protected WAN overlay services

You can expand and modify your services, as and when needed, keeping cost, uncertainty and complexity to a minimum.

Our BT public sector team is dedicated to leveraging PSN to help your organisation improve service delivery at reduced costenabling your people to work wherever they need to be and to collaborate effectively across departments and agencies. We also help you interact with the public across multiple channelsWe can underpin all of this by protecting against the threat of cyber attack.

BT can help you do things differently to transform public service delivery, achieving more for less.  In the words of the National Audit Office, enabling “the much greater economies and sustainable public service improvements that must be built on PSN.”
