NS3 Framework

London, UK – 19th July, 2023 Neos Networks, one of the UK’s leading fibre connectivity suppliers, today announced it has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Network Services 3 (NS3) framework. The framework provides access to best-in-class connectivity and communications services, with a focus on emerging technologies such as IoT and smart cities to the UKs public and third sector organisations. This includes central government departments, local authorities, NHS and healthcare providers, emergency services, social housing providers and 168,000 registered charities. Neos Networks’ full suite of connectivity services, including SD-WAN, Dark Fibre, Business Internet Services, Optical and Ethernet will be made available to these organisations via the framework.

NS3 is an update to Network Services 2 (NS2), which includes connectivity to cloud-based data and applications, radio and satellite networking and internet of things solutions, providing public sector organisations with access to the latest technologies and choice, from recognised and trusted providers.

Neos Networks has been selected as a supplier on Lot 1a, which provides access to inter-site connectivity services, a critical component of supporting future technologies and applications that will change the way we live, work, and play.

This award further strengthens Neos’ position as a key fibre provider for public sector organisations, building on its decades of success working with organisations across the UK, including Oxford County Council where it is building gigabit-capable digital infrastructure to improve digital and social inclusion across the county, and Aberdeen, where Neos’ full fibre network is underpinning smart city projects.

“Neos Networks is thrilled to have been named as a supplier on the new NS3 framework, which will ease public sector access to modern connectivity solutions,” said Joanne Green, Head of Public Sector at Neos Networks. “Our heritage and customer portfolio in this sector means we know how best to serve our customers in this space. Earlier this year, we were awarded a place on the CCS G-Cloud 13 framework for cloud-based computing services for the public sector, and today we’re providing further connectivity services for the many UK public and third sector organisations seeking to digitise their services. We’re excited to support more customers and partners on their journey to embracing new technologies and see Neos’s underlying infrastructure support critical connectivity for future-proofed applications.”
