University of St Andrews

An independent Data Network review completed by PTS enabled the University of St Andrews to deliver a best-in-class data network



St Andrews, UK


The University of St Andrews was in the process of reviewing its IT services and required support from a vendor-independent consultant to assess the data network and associated services. PTS worked closely with the University, reviewing the efficiency of the current network and its ability to securely meet future demands.


  • A technical review of the IT network architecture and platforms
  • A support and process review of IT project, deployment and support services
  • Recommendations to develop a network to increase productivity, usability and safeguard against known and unknown future challenges.

“Throughout a series of meetings with management and faculty representatives at the University, PTS gained an understanding of the current level of service and any opportunities for upgrades.”


As a vendor-independent consultancy, PTS provided the Client with the objective viewpoint it needed when reviewing its current network. Leveraging PTS’ technical expertise and extensive experience within the higher education sector, the University of St Andrews was able to quickly understand the current state of operations with regards to its data network and the potential for enhancement.
