The UK’s national research and education network, Janet, has more than 18 million users in colleges, universities and research centres, who utilise it to connect to the internet and securely share information. MIGSOLV’s connection with Next Connex will provide rare access to Janet for other public-sector and commercial organisations.
Outside the education sector, the Janet Network is widely used by public and third sector organisations, including government departments and scientific bodies. For similar organisations like charities and NGOs, connecting to it can provide a way to create relationships, share information and become involved in national and international programmes. As part of the Government’s digital-first strategy, the Janet Network may provide commercial companies with a secure way to supply their online products and services to otherwise hard-to-reach public sector customers.
Next Connex design, build and support bespoke high-performance network infrastructure and specialise in integrated data networking and hosting solutions. MIGSOLV’s Gatehouse in Norwich is a world-class data centre which houses and protects data and hardware for organisations in sectors including IT, energy and cryptocurrencies. The partnership will allow customers to quickly obtain a dedicated high-speed link to the Janet Network through MIGSOLV facilities.
