II.2.4) Description of the procurement

JSL is establishing a DPS that will enable Jisc and its customers to easily purchase value for money and technically sound telephony services and solutions that have been checked and tested in combination with the potential customer’s network. The DPS will enable new suppliers with new technologies to join the DPS throughout the lifetime of the service.

To ensure maximum benefit for its members and customers, JSL will enforce a number of financial and technical entry requirements that any supplier must fulfil before joining the DPS to ensure value for money as well as reliable and consistent integration with the Janet network that meets the needs of our customers.

The entry requirements will include but not be limited to:

— direct connectivity to the Janet network to ensure maximum service quality, or a reseller who will provide the services through a Janet Connected service provider,

— agreement to provide diligent pre-install testing to ensure customer’s infrastructure is capable of delivering telephony services,

— zero rated call costs between any telephony services purchased from a Supplier, including any combination of mobile and fixed line devices,

— the ability to deliver telephony services over the Janet network without the requirement for network quality of service,

— the supply of mobile telephone services either as a direct MVNO/MVNA or as a 3rd party supplier,

— the ability to design, supply and maintain new PBX platforms, be it hosted or on premises.

The following capabilities are desirable:

— managed services for PBX, hosted and mobile platforms as needed,

— the ability to provide professional services for telephony solution design and deployment.

The services will include but not be limited to Session initiation protocol (SIP) trunking connectivity, Private branch exchange (PBX) solutions, hosted PBX solutions, landline and mobile call charges, line rentals and ISDN connectivity. The scope of contract will also include aggregated mobile services procured by groups of organisations.

The scope of the DPS covers purchases by JSL, Jisc and its members and customers, including purchases by Higher Education institutions, Further Education and Specialist Colleges and Research Council establishments in the UK, and also by any other organisations connected to the Janet network, including local authorities, regional broadband consortia, or other bodies whose core purpose is the support or advancement of further or higher education or of research.

Many of the above organisations are members of higher and further education purchasing consortia. These consortia are independent organisations that provide a wide range of collaborative purchase agreements to their member institutions. Any member of one of these consortia will be eligible to purchase from this framework by virtue of its membership, as will members of any other similar purchasing consortium in higher or further education that might be formed during the lifetime of the framework.
