Liverpool City Council has chosen Siemens Network Systems (SNSL) to build a metropolitan area network, worth in excess of #1 million, to deliver information services to the local authority staff and its customers. Part of the work involves networking Millennium House (right), a large datacentre office complex used by the council for housing, environmental and leisure services. The new network will draw together a series of separate networks, replacing the aging X.25 network with a Cisco Catalyst 5000 10/100Mbps Ethernet switch as a VLAN connection to the datacentre. Now, the data centre forms the hub of a 100Mbps full duplex network.
