New providers for Inter-Council Network appointed

The Inter-Council Network (ICN) is a shared service high capacity fibre network connecting the majority of BOPLASS councils. ICN design and architecture was reviewed in 2020 and an evaluation of ICN contracts undertaken to deliver further cost reductions and improved capacity.

Existing contracts were renegotiated with some of the ICN suppliers and additional providers appointed. This resulted in improved levels of service and increased annual savings to the councils for this foundation service.  

Appointed ICN providers are:

  • Cyber-Smart
  • Evolution Networks
  • Spark
  • Vocus
