DEC is preparing to launch into the UK value added network services market, and an announcement is expected next week. The company is saying nothing ahead of the announcement, but the consensus is that the primary focus will be on the City in the wake of DEC’s success in Big Bang installations. The UK Department of Trade and Industry has confirmed that DEC has been holding discussions on becoming a sponsor of the Vanguard programme, which was set up by the big companies in the market to make businesses more aware of the benefits of using value-added networks. DEC is currently recruiting personnel for its push into the network market and is likely to launch services over its network as a third party vendor, including software distribution services for its dealers, as well as information on technical services to customers and value added resellers. The company is likely to concentrate initially on the UK networks market, which is considered to be the most advanced in Europe.
