Marketing hots up for Janet6

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 - 15:26

Welcome to the Janet6 blog in what is hoped to be the start of many blog posts.

The last few weeks have been busy, not least for the Janet6 project team, but also for those of us involved in the marketing of the project.

On 6 August, we celebrated the signing of contracts between SSET, our chosen fibre providers, and Janet.  The small gathering with our partners and the project team gave us the good opportunity not only to eat pastries, but to get to know the SSET guys a little better; it also gave us the usual 'smile and shake' photo opportunity as contracts were signed.

As we get close to contracts being signed with our equipment provider, things have been hotting up on our comms acitvities. We are currently working with the press team of our preferred supplier to prepare press releases for when this happens (watch this space!) - we are also hoping for some wider announcements as work starts on the infrastructure, so keep an eye out!

If you want to find out more about our progress, then keep an eye out for details of our next Janet6 webinar, on 4 October.  We're just finalising details and will post them on the Janet6 project page. In the meantime, you can always join our Janet6 community group to have your say on the Janet6 project.  A blatant plug for our project pages, I know, but I am in marketing!
