The emPSN Infrastructure: who we work with

At the heart of our operations is the national Network Operations Centre, which offers support 365 days a year. From the smallest problem, such as a faulty router on-site at school, to a larger network-wide problem, the NOC monitors network performance and rapidly arranges bug fixes and repairs.

Reliability, online safety, web filtering and IT maintenance are essential for a school internet connection. Here at emPSN we’ve built up strong, productive and dependable partnerships over 20 years with some of the best providers in the industry, serving the East Midlands and beyond.



Our infrastructure has been managed by Nasstar, (formerly KCOM) a leading UK communications and IT services provider, since 2001. Some of their main clients include local government institutions, the police force, hospitals and much more. They offer a range of solutions, including region Public Sector Network connectivity to contact centre solutions.
