The formal signing, between Logicom Solutions and the Department of Electrical and Mechanical Services of the Ministry of Transports, Communications and Works, for the implementation of the Governmental Unified Network (GUN) took place on Friday the 21st of July 2019.
The Governmental Unified Network will be the largest, up to now, digital infrastructure project in Cyprus as it will connect approximately 18.000 public sector employees in about 400 government buildings in a cost efficient and secure manner. This project will upgrade the entire network infrastructure of the government by combining the use of digital technologies and functional capabilities.
The cost of the project is expected to reach approximately € 12 million, with an implementation span of 18 months followed by an 8-year maintenance support by Logicom Solutions.
The Managing Director of Logicom Solutions, Mr. Chrysostomos Kridiotis, mentioned that: "The Governmental Unified Network is a significant step forward for the Cyprus Government, putting in place strong foundations for the implementation of the Government’s digital vision. Through this project, which we consider of strategic importance for Cyprus, the voice and data networks of the Government will be centralized and significantly enhanced, through the implementation of a state-of-the-art digital infrastructure."
He explained that "Logicom Solutions’ team of experts, in collaboration with CISCO, a worldwide leader in networking, designed a solution based on best practices that will bring the best possible outcome."
