About the Network Programme (NP)

The Data Network at the University of Glasgow is a vital infrastructure component supporting the delivery of teaching, learning, research and business operations for the University. It has grown over the years to meet an ever-increasing demand, which it does very well, but is now aging and in need of a refresh.

The Network Programme will provide a modern data network service and technologies enabling the University of Glasgow to deliver world leading research and teaching.

The Network Programme briefing pack (pdf 0.9Mb) provides more information on how we have, and plan to, tackle this.
