Gov Hand Gigabit Capability Status to SSE Enterprise Telecoms

Monday, December 16th, 2019 (11:28 am) - Score 992

The UK Government has today approved fibre optic connectivity provider SSE Enterprise Telecoms (SSEET) as a supplier under the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) RM6095 agreement, which means that they’re now eligible to provide public sector buyers with “Gigabit-capable” connectivity services.

SSEET are one of the first UK infrastructure providers to achieve this status. The agreement gives buyers in public sector organisations access to suppliers for a number of fibre optic infrastructure services (via build services and / or managed network infrastructure services), including both dark fibre and lit fibre.

The agreement will run for the next four years and after that we assume it will be reviewed.

Martin Samuel, SSEET’s Public Sector Director, said:

“We’re delighted to have been named as a supplier on CCS’s RM6095 Gigabit Capable agreement and the opportunity to work even more closely with public sector organisations. It will mean we’re part of building and managing the UK infrastructure needed to deliver public data-intensive services at speed. As these organisations digitise their processes and services, reliable and robust connectivity will need to underpin every part of their network.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ appointment to the RM6095 agreement is another positive step towards providing the fibre capabilities and widespread access points needed to meet growing end user demand on local and national services.”

At present SSEET operates a 12,000km long private telecoms network and an estate of 80 commercial data centres that span the UK.
