Several interesting networking contracts have come across the wires this week already, here’s a quick look.
XO Holdings (news, filings) has deployed a nationwide voice and data solution for Kawasaki Motors. The fully managed MPLS wide area network will hook up headquarters, sales offices, distribution and manufacturing facilities across five states, cutting overall voice and networking costs by some 40%. Which 5 states? A little legwork tells me that their HQ is in Irvine CA, and the other major sites are in Piscataway NJ; Atlanta GA; Fort Worth TX, and Grand Rapids MI.
The Sullivan University System has selected TW Telecom (NASDAQ:TWTC, news, filings) for advanced voice, data and internet services across six campuses in the three cities of Louisville, Lexington and Fort Knox. Yes, the one where all the gold is – actually it’s pretty close to Louisville so really this is across two metro areas, but hey it’s Fort Knox. TW Telecom will be providing Ethernet Internet Service, Native LAN and VOIP to each, including to the university’s first residential building in Louisville.
And Orange Business Services, the international arm of France Telecom (NYSE:FTE, news, filings), won a renewed and expanded 5 year multimillion dollar contract with TechTeam Global. Orange will provide a rather wide range of voice, data, and managed services. TechTeam Global is an international IT outsourcing firm that reaches 70 countries. It’s main services include service desk, technical support, desk-side support, security administration, and infrastructure managemen. Orange has had this contract for a decade now, and it is a classic example of the kind of customers they specialize in serving.
