Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust contracts for 10GB WAN

15 April 2024

MLL Telecom has won an initial three-year contract from Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust for the provision and management of a secure and resilient 10GB wide area network (WAN).

The £300,000 award was made following a tender on the RM3825 framework. Due for implementation this summer, MLL’s network solution will support Torbay and South Devon’s ongoing delivery of Health and Social Care Network (HSCN} services. The diverse, 10GB network represents a ten-fold increase over the existing solution to ensure greater bandwidth and resilience. Along with highly secure connectivity, the network’s increased capacity and performance will facilitate the reliable delivery of shared services as well as enable enhanced access to information by users and patients.

“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,” said Joel Joseph, network manager at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. “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.”

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