London, 22 April 2013 – Network access specialist, The Kenton Group, believes innovative technology is key to the success of the PSN (Public Services Network) Services framework, acting as a catalyst for improved working and public services across the UK. This announcement comes ahead of next week’s Public Services Network Summit, to be held on 2 May in London. 

Since 2005, The Kenton Group has partnered with a number of PSN providers and collaborated in the build of over twelve PSN and educational networks across the country. The company is exhibiting at the event as a major technology supplier into PSN networks and continues to support the PSN Services framework by rolling out a number of complex PSN networks using a mix of LLU, EFM, Fibre, Wi-Fi and Ethernet services.

A part of its work on PSN the company has developed a range of products including its innovative ADSL regenerator, Sprint which increases the speed of DSL services (ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+) by more than 50 per cent, delivering high-speed broadband to both existing served communities and un-served communities. Also developed, as part of its widening portfolio, is its Broadband Enabling Technology, which focuses on providing those without broadband access with a reliable connection and service, along with its MAR product range, which is targeted at providing services to traffic controllers, delivering local Wi-Fi services, and improving rural mobile coverage.

John Larkin, Managing Director at The Kenton Group said: “The PSN is an important part of the Government’s IT strategy to reduce infrastructure costs and increase efficiencies across the public sector. Our innovative products and service offerings enable us to support this initiative and we’re pleased to be involved in helping to improve services for communities across the country.”

The Kenton Group is also pleased to announce its partnership with Allied Telesis, a world class leader in delivering IP/Ethernet network solutions to the global marketplace, ahead of the event.
