"Over 2,000 devices were replaced in addition to the creation of two new data centres which ensure resilience and business continuity. Fujitsu worked with telephony and network partners to provide secure Wi-Fi access across the Libraries NI estate."
Desi Curry Head of ICU and ICT Libraries NI
Libraries NI was established in April 2009 and is the public library service for Northern Ireland. Library services are free for members and are delivered through a network of 96 branch libraries, two heritage libraries, 16 mobile libraries and 10 home call vehicles across Northern Ireland. The organisation’s aim is to connect people with information, ideas and experiences to foster lifelong learning and inspire curiosity.
Libraries NI wanted to find one single managed service partner to upgrade its whole technology environment across all its 98 libraries in order to reduce costs, increase reliability and boost performance.
Fujitsu replaced all technology assets, including over 2,000 devices and printers as well as servers and storage. Each individual item in the Libraries NI inventory was also RFID tagged by Fujitsu and Libraries NI staff– over 2.5 million books, albums and DVDs.
