Telecommunications

Since December 2014, CSUC jointly contracts corporate telecommunications services, both fixed and mobile, as well as other services of maintenance and support. The objective is to make the technological evolution of this service easy, and to homogenize the technical solutions implemented at universities with the best technical and economical conditions. 

Nine universities (UB, UAB, UPC, UPF, UdL, UdG, UOC, URL-IQS and UVic-UCC) and three research centers (PCT of the UdG, CRG and IRBB) are provided with these services right now.
