How to future-proof your organisation's network
The Public Services Network (PSN) is the government’s high-performance network, which helps public sector organisations work together, reduce duplication and share resources.
The Cabinet Office’s Future Networks for Government (FN4G) programme is encouraging organisations to migrate away from the PSN, in favour of more modern, cloud-centric networking solutions, ideally using the internet as backbone.
By using a flexible solution to connect to the PSN, you can improve the citizen experience in using your services while preparing your organisation for a simple and painless move away from the PSN. Future proofing your infrastructure in this way minimises downtime, security risk and budget constraints.
Your network services will need to support 'legacy' PSN connectivity in addition to modern cloud-centric solutions, to lay this foundation for future migration plans.
In addition some workloads may need to remain on the Public Services Network for security and data sovereignty reasons. PSN connect offers secure, cost-effective connectivity to the PSN for users, sites and cloud environments without restrictive commercials or prohibitive costs.
We manage your connectivity for you so you can focus on delivering great citizen services.
Futureproofing your network is easy with PSN Connect
Four easy steps to get your PSN compliance using PSN Connect.
Before you can connect to the Public Services Network your organisation needs to pass the PSN compliance process. Cloud Gateway make this process quick and simple.
Provide your details and company registration info
The PSN Code of Connection (CoCo) document is an application form to connect to the PSN. You’ll need to complete your organisation’s details, including your registration number. If you are a central government department or local authority you won’t need to provide a registration number.
Sign your commitment statement
As well as providing your company information and details about your network, you’ll also need to make a set of commitments. These commitments dictate how you’ll work throughout the compliance process and the period of your connection to the PSN.
Your network environment
The PSN's Information Assurance (IA) assessors need information about the infrastructure you want to connect to the PSN. This includes the number of sites, users and IP addresses being connected. This also needs to be accompanied by a network diagram that shows you are connecting your network to Cloud Gateway. Don't worry as we can help you provide this.
