New network to connect up Audit Commission

Watchdog looks to connect up 500 sites across the UK

Government audit watchdog, the Audit Commission has signed a £5m contract
with network operator Thus to provide a converged next generation network.

Thus will connect 500 Audit Commission sites across the country with a
resilient wide area network (Wan), centralising its business applications.

It will allow the commission to begin voice, data and video networking over
IP immediatel, enabling videoconferencing over IP to provide greater flexibility
for its mobile workforce.

The commission, which advises the public sector on the most efficient use of
public funds, wanted to replace its existing network infrastructure to increase
its own efficiency.

Roll out to primary sites is expected by the end of July, with further sites
completed by July, 2007.
