Higher and Further Education

The TNP team has its roots in Higher and Further Education and was formed from working as part of Lancaster University’s Information Systems team.

The team was also instrumental in the design, build and management of the CaNLMAN and CLEO networks, providing services to Higher and Further Education in Lancashire and Cumbria.

This experience, spanning over 40 combined years in network engineering and management, provides the TNP team with a unique insight into the sector and means that we are able to advise on a wide variety of projects from strategic advice, though procurement, to implementation and support. Examples of the types of projects we have worked on include:

  • ICT Strategy Development
  • System and Network Design
  • WAN and MAN System Design and Build
  • Procurement Support
  • Programme, Project and Implementation Management
  • System and Network Configuration
  • Energy Efficiency and Management
