Daisy Updata Communications will manage a wide area network (WAN) connecting more than 183 council owned sites and schools across Central Bedfordshire.

Daisy Updata Communications Ltd (DUCL) has been awarded a nine-year contract to manage and develop the IT network infrastructure for Central Bedfordshire Council.
 
DUCL will manage a wide area network (WAN) connecting more than 183 council owned sites and schools across Central Bedfordshire.
  
As part of the new contract, the council will join Essex County Council’s Next Generation Network (NGN).

Matthew Riley, chief executive officer at Daisy Group plc, said: “The role of unified communications is playing an increasingly important role in helping progressive organisations drive efficiencies and enhance collaboration and communication, none more so than those operating in the public sector.

We are delighted to be working with Central Bedfordshire as they adopt new technologies to drive the council, its staff and services into the digital age through technology.”
