A new single-service broadband network for the public sector is to be created in Wales.
The Public Sector Broadband Aggregation (PSBA) project is going to be spearheaded by global technology group Logicalis.
It will develop the service from its new base in Nantgarw, which is located close to Cardiff.
Logicalis opened the regional headquarters after securing the seven-year £74 million contract.
Tom Kelly, managing director for Logicalis, told Wales Online that PSBA highlights the importance of collaboration between the private and public sectors in Wales.
He commented: "We are very excited at the opportunities we see here in Wales, especially in the public sector, where Wales is taking a UK lead in next-generation public services through projects such as PSBA."
Launched in 2007, PSBA is designed to connect workers in the NHS, local authorities and further education establishments.
