Great Ormond Street Hospital is an internationally renowned children’s hospital located in London. As an NHS Trust the organisation is reliant upon its current N3 network connection for accessing N3 National & Regional Applications hosted by other NHS Digital N3 Health Partners.
We have worked with Great Ormond Street Hospital for the replacement of the legacy N3 data access service with a compliant Health & Social Care Network (HSCN) data access service. AdEPT is an HSCN compliant Supplier of Data Access Services. The HSCN WAN solution is based around a set of managed Dual 10Gbps Diversely Routed Ethernet Bearers, over which AdEPT will provision an HSCN VRF with 1Gbps of HSCN Bandwidth and an Internet VRF with 9Gbps of Internet DIA bandwidth.
The objectives set by Great Ormond Street Hospital were simply set around cost, working with a compliant supplier, deployment experience and ensuring smooth migration from legacy services to the new HSCN environment. In order to fulfil the requirement, AdEPT allocated a Project Manager to manage the specification and deployment of the new data connectivity. The critical milestone was the migration of existing N3 IP Subnet services onto the new connection. This was conducted via the standard N3 to HSCN Migration process and required co-ordination with the outgoing service provider. The AdEPT Project Manager utilised standard templates and use guides to coordinate and test the completion of migration.
