Exponential-e has achieved Stage 2 Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) compliance, enabling the cloud, network and UC provider to deliver integrated ICT services to public sector customers.
Stage 2 compliance means that Exponential-e now has certified connectivity access to HSCN central services, as well as two geographically diverse Crown Hosting Data Centres.
The connection to the Crown Hosting Data Centres means that Exponential-e can contribute to the UK Government's aim for the public sector to put the cloud first.
This enables the seamless delivery of HSCN services to the Health and Social Care Sector, including NHS trusts, with the added benefit of connectivity into Crown Hosting Data Centres.
Exponential-e's achievement follows the company's positioning on the HSCN Access Services Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) in November 2017.
Afshin Attari, Director Public Sector Exponential-e, commented: "HSCN has the ability to effectively relieve pressure on hundreds of trusts that have been reliant on ageing network infrastructure.
"It is also the chief enabling platform for new technologies and services, empowering the public sector with more choice.
"We're looking forward to helping the likes of NHS Trusts, CSUs, and CCGs drive innovative thinking across the Health and Social Care Sector, relieving the NHS of the confines of a legacy network in the process."
