Creating a collaborative partnership

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is the world’s largest nursing union and professional body, representing more than 435,000 members.

RCN hosts all key services within a shared data centre. They selected KCOM as their technology partner to work collaboratively with their internal IT teams in delivering their new managed wide area network.

RCN's network model allows it to progress colocation and cloud models as appropriate, and invest in its own shared data centre expansion.

  • Significantly reduced network congestion with 100Mb/1Gb circuits into all sites
  • Cost savings of around £200k per annum in circuit rental, internet circuits and firewall licencing/support
  • Ability to move servers to new cloud environment
  • Centralised firewall service and internet breakout
  • Faster, more reliable network to support voice services
