MLL wins NHS contract in Devon

MLL Telecom has announced it has won an initial three-year contract from Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust.

The contract covers the provision and management of a secure and resilient 10GB wide area network (WAN) network. The award is valued at around £300,000 and was made following a tender on the RM3825 framework.

MLL’s network solution is due for implementation this summer and will support Torbay and South Devon’s ongoing delivery of Health and Social Care Network (HSCN} services.

The 10GB network represents a ten-fold increase over the existing solution to ensure greater bandwidth and resilience. Along with secure connectivity, the network’s increased capacity and performance will facilitate the delivery of shared services as well as enabling access to information by users and patients.

Joel Joseph, network manager, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, said, “This contract award for a significant deployment of HSCN services is being carried out by an established partner to NHS Trust organisations in the Southwest region.

“We therefore have every confidence in MLL’s expertise and ability to install and maintain our new HSCN WAN. This will undoubtedly enhance our existing services and support future innovation.”

Mark Freeborough, client manager for the South, MLL Telecom, added, “We are delighted to have been appointed by Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust.

“This latest success in the Southwest region further demonstrates our technology and track-record in helping enhance end user and patient experience. It will also provide MLL with further collaboration opportunities in the region in the future.”
