Slough, UK – October 1, 2019 – Logicalis UK has today announced that it has been awarded a place on Jisc Services Ltd’s Network Equipment framework, under three lots: Lot 3 Cisco, Lot 8 F5, and Lot 8 Infoblox. Logicalis has been selected as the top ranked supplier for Cisco solutions to the sector and is the only nominated F5 supplier.
With suppliers chosen through an open and thorough selection process, the framework supports higher and further education organisations in streamlining the procurement of network technology, services and solutions. It achieves this by replacing the traditional tender process with a flexible and cost-effective purchasing program.
As the leading Cisco supplier on the framework and a long-standing partner to UK Higher Education, Logicalis UK is now able to work directly with organisations to help accelerate their adoption of adaptable digital platforms based on Cisco’s advanced intent-based networking platforms. This supports the experience expectations of students, academics and researchers and the growing trend for intelligent IoT connected campus services that are set to become a fundamental part of any modern digital University.
Alex Louth, Managing Director at Logicalis UK said: “We’re proud to continue our two-decade long partnership with UK Higher Education. Today, digital technology plays an ever-greater role in helping institutions to deliver world-class education and research experiences. Over many years we’ve developed a strong understanding of the challenges and needs of customers and we have never been in a stronger position to drive digital change. This framework is further validation of our mission to help these customers to succeed in their IT strategies.”
“Coupled with our status as a Cisco Global Gold Certified Partner and our recent achievement as a Cisco IoT authorisation partner, our standing on the Jisc framework cements Logicalis UK as one of the leading experts when it comes to Cisco products and services,” continued Louth.
Having successfully secured its place, Logicalis UK will officially be included on the Network Equipment framework commencing 1st October 2019.
