As part of the future IT Strategic Roadmap there are several technology and operational changes that One Manchester are currently implementing that will impact the underlying current network environment and management, these being: 

  • Core IT Foundation: Public Cloud Adoption and movement to Microsoft Azure public cloud 
  • Colleague Experience: Migration from VDI (Horizon Vue) desktop delivery to a Windows Intune managed Microsoft Surfaces device  
  • Core IT Foundation: Migration away from fixed telephony requirements and usage with different working patterns and increased use of Microsoft Teams  

Therefore, this is driving a need to change the current network infrastructure at all levels to support the changing needs. One Manchester has decided that they will implement an SD Wan solution using Meraki technology and is about to enter into a procurement for the migration and implementation, and then the subsequent management and operation of that network.

We are inviting suppliers to participate in this process. To express an interest, please download and complete the pre-qualification questionnaire. Details of how to submit your response are in the questionnaire.

You must respond by 5:30pm on Thursday 27 May 2021.
