Timico supplies St John Ambulance with Private WAN


Timico infrastructure enables charity to strengthen connectivity between its head office and 50 regional centres across England

Unified communications service provider Timico has partnered with St John Ambulance (SJA) to provide the charity with a private wide area network (PWAN) solution to strengthen connectivity between its head office in London and over 50 regional office across England

The fully managed network includes 12 leased lines on either 100MB OR 1GB bearers and a 100MB ‘point to point’ connection between the SJA’s headquarters and national distribution centre in Peterborough.

Timico also provided a central internet breakout with two 100MB points protected by firewalls in order to give SJA a “high availability cluster”. Twenty four hour technical support will also be provided.

SJA IT director Karl Heydenrych said: “Timico’s network solutions are much more dynamic and flexible compared to those we have experienced with other suppliers, proven by our IT network now being able to deliver Next Generation capabilities

“Timico’s project management team and support personnel ensured their implementation work was carried out on time and on budget. I would have no hesitation in recommending Timico to any other charitable organisation looking to take on a similar implementation to ours.”
