We'll get you there quickly
Rapid Migration

A rapid migration with minimal disruption

Migration to Global Connectivity is well under way and we are now managing the overall network service, including legacy connections that have yet to migrate to Fujitsu. We will migrate everyone over to the new service between July 2016 and the end of 2017.
The key elements of Fujitsu’s implementation of Global Connectivity are:
  • High performance network capability - new high-speed WAN, LAN and Gateways
  • Rapid pan-MOD migration programme
  • Minimal disruption
  • A phased delivery approach

High Performance Network Capability
Users will experience greater network speed, throughput and reliability delivered by state of the art network devices. These improvements will be coupled with a coherent approach to management and security that utilises the latest COTS products and security standards adapted to meet the unique demands of the MOD.
Rapid migration programme
The immensely complex nature of this project means we’ve devised a rapid pan-MOD migration programme scheduled to complete by late 2017. Should opportunities present themselves to accelerate activities they will be explored and agreed with the stakeholders to ensure any changes are coordinated with other projects and programmes.
Minimal disruption, resilience assured
Any disruption will be kept to an absolute minimum with recent experiences showing a single security domain can be migrated within an hour outage and that can be scheduled at any time of day or night. Resilience will be assured by temporary retention of existing legacy services allowing rollback in the event of unexpected or unplanned occurrences.
A phased delivery approach
The phased migration started in July 2016 and all the early major programme milestones have been achieved. The plan for completion has recently been reset to take account of emerging factors that needed to be addressed. The target completion date remains the end of 2017.
