Uppsalahem wanted a trusted supplier who could take overall responsibility for the office network, guest network, and real estate technical network, across both fixed and wireless connections.

“The acceleration of digital has put greater demands on the availability and stability of our networks. Data Ductus matched our requirements, proving they could provide a modern standardized online service with the flexibility to scale in accordance with our needs. Now we will be able to put more focus on our core business. We look forward to a long-term relationship with Data Ductus,” says Åsa Engström, IT and Digitalization Manager at Uppsalahem.

NaaS from Data Ductus, is a packaged solution – incorporating network and associated infrastructure services – that a customer subscribes to. In this way, they avoid expensive infrastructure investments and always have a reliable and modern network that can be adapted and scaled as needed. Data Ductus is responsible for the design of the architecture, installation, maintenance, and support.

The demand for NaaS has increased in recent years, as more companies look to outsource their network operations. As a result, Data Ductus are further strengthening their competence in this area.

“It’s a great feeling to be working with Uppsalahem – a customer that plays an important societal role in the city of Uppsala. Winning this contract is very rewarding, particularly as we have a large office in the city. Networking and data communication is one of our key focus services here in Sweden and one where we can offer extensive experience from a skilled and dedicated team,” says Ludwig Eriksson, Business Area Manager at Data Ductus.
