Global Connectivity - We’ll get you there quickly!
A rapid migration with minimal disruption
- High performance network capability - new high-speed WAN, LAN and Gateways
- Rapid pan-MOD migration programme
- Minimal disruption
- A phased delivery approach
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.
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.
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.
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.
