News : C24 Provides Busy Call System for Emergency Services
Nov 12, 2014 -- West Midlands Ambulance Services (WMAS) has invested in a new on premise Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution from global hosting managed service provider C24.
The solution, which has been purchased via the Government’s G-Cloud framework, will underpin the 999 Dispatch and Patient Transport Applications at WMAS and allow the Trust to continue to deliver high levels of emergency and urgent care to support the public. The new service will allow WMAS to retain its existing IT infrastructure on site, with a C24 hosting wraparound service.
West Midlands Ambulance Service takes almost 3,000 999 calls every day, covering an area of 5,000 square miles and a population of over five million. With so many patients making contact with the Trust on a daily basis, a secure IT infrastructure with reliable hosting is essential to keeping the Trust running at maximum capacity. C24’s enterprise solution delivers reliability and high levels of availability for WMAS by implementing a flexible, yet robust infrastructure layer comprising of HP Bladesystem and HP 3PAR storage technologies.
