AN IT firm will supply four Gwent councils and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner with replacement network switches and wireless access points. 

The £416,948.50 contract has been awarded, through a process run by Caerphilly Borough Council, to IT firm CAE which is a Cisco Infrastructure provider. 

The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office, Newport, Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire and Torfaen councils all used Cisco equipment and systems and a report to approve the contract stated: “Cisco is our only option for partial refreshes.” 

Newport City Council is putting in the biggest chunk of the contract with a £157,790.70 contribution with the Police and Crime Commissioner stumping up £141,856.40 while Monmouthshire must pay £83,162.7 with Blaenau Gwent adding £25,245.20 and Torfaen only has to find £8,893.50.
