This excerpt is from a recent press release detailing the work that Imerja is carrying out in partnership with Virgin Media Business.
Health and social care workers across Lancashire are to benefit from a new £9m high-speed network.
The project will include the delivery of a 10Gbit/s network with wireless, Local Area Network (LAN), voice, Remote Access Service (RAS) and mobile services connecting 11 hospitals, 85 health centres, clinics and surgeries, 33 mental health and social care departments, three prisons and 37 other NHS sites. The network will be supported by a single bespoke service desk, centralised with the aim of improving efficiencies, optimising online security and enhancing the patient experience.
Virgin Media Business will work in partnership with infrastructure and security firm Imerja to install the initial stage of the project, including the development and management of the service desk. The infrastructure should take around three years to fully install.
