Our recent network upgrade provides
- dual fibre-based Gigabit connections to the internet for maximum resilience and redundancy for our web sites and services
- load balancing between our web servers with Gigabit connections to the internet and back office application servers, giving a tenfold increase in available bandwidth
- Secure Sockets Layer (SSL/https) connections to protect your personal data as it traverses the web
- protection from Denial of Service (DoS) attacks
Our Information Technology (IT) infrastructure (servers and networks) are maintained by our local IT support group (POL Computing). In turn, POL Computing are supported by NERC's IT Solutions & Services (iTSS) who provide specialised expertise.
We will continue to work closely with these groups to maintain and develop the IT infrastructure we depend on as part of our commitment to improving access to our data holdings and web services.
