ANTENNA from FourNet is a secure cloud-based communications service, developed in collaboration with the Prime Minister’s Office, hosted in UK Government data centres and purchased via the Crown Commercial Service.
ANTENNA provides voice, mobile, contact centre, video, messaging and collaboration services to UK Government Departments across a secure, managed private network.
The shared communications platform for Central Government
Delivered via a secure, private, cloud-based enterprise platform and network; hosted in highly secure, resilient Government accredited data centres.
Dedicated service-desk, project office and professional services based in Westminster; manned by the UK’s largest team of SC and DV level security cleared engineers.
ANTENNA provides services to over 40,000 central government users and is saving millions of taxpayers’ money.
The ANTENNA programme was formed because we wanted to share our ICT infrastructure with other Departments in a way that's not been achieved before. The approach taken by the Prime Minister's Office meant that by utilising existing equipment, we could reduce costs, improve service and provide expert support to Departments in a way that they've not experienced previously.
