Modern Networks inherited the IT and communications systems at CityPoint and has been working with the management team to provide an enhanced system to cater for full business continuity for all elements of IT and communications. To this extent , Modern Networks was awarded the contract for the building refresh of all of the management systems and communications platforms taking on board the existing systems to provide a more robust and feature rich environment embracing technology at the core of the network.
