LONDON -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (LVLT) today announced that the UK government has listed the company as a supplier for five service categories under the Public Services Network (PSN) framework. Following on from Level 3's secured placement on the PSN Connectivity Framework Agreement, announced in April, Level 3 is now positioned to start providing network and Cloud-based services over the PSN to any PSN customer.

The service categories for which Level 3 is a named supplier include:

  • Communication Services;

  • Conferencing Services;

  • Contact Centre Services;

  • Gateway Services; and

  • Unified Services.

    The PSN Services framework aims to assist UK government and the wider public sector by providing an efficient, effective procurement chain for services. The framework is intended to create a Pan-UK Government/Public Sector unified network that will generate significant cost savings in excess of £130 million a year by removing duplicate connections, simplifying procurement processes, encouraging the use of shared services and providing a platform for collaboration.
