The evolution of SWAN – further and faster

The SWAN network was launched after a Scottish Government paper in 2012 outlined its future vision for digital services in the public sector. Since then, more than 6,000 sites have been connected, including schools, hospitals, GP surgeries, pharmacists and local council offices.

Now in its second generation, SWAN will drive better network performance, faster speeds, a greater choice of services and significant savings for Scotland’s public sector.
