Blackburn Council Wide Area Network

Blackburn with Darwen Council’s existing network infrastructure was fragmented in design with individual circuits being bought from numerous telecoms providers. As a result, if a technical problem arose, it was difficult to pinpoint where the responsibility lay, meaning that the Council’s response to network failures was slow.

A partnership was formed with TNP that would deliver a an ultra-modern, multi-technology solution. Implementing an infrastructure that encorporated multiple technologies meant that the solution would provide the council with flexibility and longevity.
