Netcompany technology review for the Centralised Switching Service (CSS)


As part of the procurement activity in the Ofgem led Switching Programme, DCC commissioned Netcompany UK (previously Hunter Macdonald) to carry out a review of the potential technologies and products available as part of the forthcoming tender for the Central Switching Service (CSS). The report is now available on our website here.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank organisations that may have participated in research or interviews held by Netcompany to help with their findings.

This document, and any points made about named companies, represents the findings of the Netcompany team following research and interviews with various stakeholders. The views, opinions and conclusions expressed in the report do not reflect the official policy or position of DCC or Ofgem.

References to website links within the document were correct at the time of drafting however these may have been removed since publication.

The report reflects issues around the CSS design and intended DCC procurement approach at a point in time (early in 2018).  Since then there have been developments not captured in this report.
