II.2.4) Description of the procurement

WAN: The new WAN needs to support cloud services, be highly available and provide a solid platform for Unified Communications technologies. Future requirements will address on-premises data centre consolidation, deployment of hosted virtual desktops and growth (or decline) in the number of users and sites. The design needs to be simple to manage and support, providing reporting capabilities, scalability, guaranteed performance and flexibility.

It will need to support an increase in mobile working and integration with third parties. Business continuity, organisational network security and disaster recovery capability will rely on this new WAN.

LAN: Midland Heart requires a new LAN standard to support future business needs, allowing the simple deployment and management of local networks. Security will be at the heart of the network, allowing for identity management and requirements for Cyber Essentials Plus. The new platform will provide insights into application workload behaviour and be scalable to allow for expansion of network technologies, bandwidth or services.

Wi-Fi: The new Wi-Fi will provide a reliable, consistent experience in our office locations, with seamless roaming and mobile access optimisation. Security services will facilitate identity and secure access management. Midland Heart will have the ability to proactively monitor the Wi-Fi network to determine and resolve connectivity issues. They will have the capability to provide customer access with appropriate bandwidth, access and security controls, acting as a facilitator rather than service provider.

Midland Heart wishes to explore award options through using PCR 2015, Regulation 30- Competitive dialogue, as an appropriate means to engage suppliers to seek specification service delivery options.
