Integrator extends its portfolio of major higher education wins
Logical, the professional services and IT network integration company, today announced that it has won a significant contract with the University of Huddersfield for the supply and installation of next-generation networks and associated services.
Logical and the University of Huddersfield have agreed a commercial framework which ensures that the university receives the best value for money throughout the life of the three year partnership with an option to extend for a further two years.
The University of Huddersfield is a dynamic and expanding institution with more than 17,500 students and 2,200 members of staff. In order to maintain its position at the forefront of technology-based learning, the university sought assistance to replace its existing network with a business-class solution capable of supporting both its immediate and future needs, offering consistent and guaranteed levels of service across the campus. Logical was selected after an extensive tender process.
The initial contract includes a significant upgrade to the existing infrastructure to increase availability, security and overall network resilience. Complementing this network upgrade is an innovative network management solution that will provide increased visibility of the network, in-depth capacity planning and multi-level reporting. In addition to equipment and software supply, based on products from Cisco Systems and Concord, Logical will provide network design, project management and implementation services, together with on-going strategic advice on the development of the university’s IT infrastructure.
“Our partnership with the University of Huddersfield is further recognition of Logical’s value as a trusted advisor and provider of IT infrastructure to UK universities and higher education,” said Simon North, UK Managing Director, Logical.
The University of Huddersfield win is the latest in a long line of major successes that Logical has enjoyed in the UK public sector. Recent contract wins include Sheffield Hallam University, City University and Bolton Institute.
