Abri are seeking the provision of a group-wide connectivity provider for all our sites. 

Abri currently utilises SD-WAN technology for our network backbone and this is rolled out to every site. Our current contracts expire in 2022.

All sites in the ‘East’ geography (former-Radian) are running on new connectivity, specified according to size and number of staff at sites. A redundant link is available at every site, ranging from 4G, PSTN to 1GB/1GB geo-diverse standby. Abri only require these to be taken on by a new supplier and no installation or configuration.

Sites in the ‘West’ have had lines converted from MPLS to FTTC to facilitate SD-WAN, but this was a tactical solution deployed with the incumbent supplier. The edge routers in use are old and should be replaced along with new lines and redundancy where appropriate. 

Abri have used t-shirt sizing to allocate connectivity requirements for sites, and as standardisation is a major part of the technology strategy going forward, it is a must for this to be implemented as expected. All sites are included in this on Appendix A1 (attached tender documentation).

WiFi is out of scope for this delivery.
