Marlow-based network provider MLL Telecom has won a seven-year contract with The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT) to install broadband and security at its 45 primary, special and secondary academies.
To cater for sites in various counties MLL says it will employ a carrier integration model offering services from a range of network operators. TKAT schools will aim to go live on the network over the next two years, beginning in four months.
Kell Webber, TKAT’s Senior Information Technology Analyst, said: “MLL Telecom’s managed Gigabit Fibre Wide Area Network and broadband services ensure TKAT will have a network to provide our teachers and students with fast, reliable and secure connection to the Internet.”
To win the contract MLL had to top the class in a tender process under the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Education Technology Framework Agreement.
Gail Harvey, Business Development Director at MLL Telecom said: “TKAT’s academies over the next seven years will benefit from the responsiveness, resilience and reliability of our managed WAN service.”
