IT services provider, CSC has expanded the relationship with Transport for NSW after scoring a three-year contract to supply network managed services, worth more than $100 million.
This covers the department's 1200 sites including administration offices, motor registries, roadside depots and railway stations. The deal also comes with two one-year extension options. Transport for NSW has been a UXC customer since 1992.
Under the contract, CSC will manage seven separate legacy networks as well as ‘next generation’ technologies that will be deployed in a forthcoming network refresh.
It will also maintain all operationally critical network equipment including switch routers, wireless networks, and firewalls for Transport for NSW and its agencies. CSC will also manage all third-parties that provide service and carriage, and in the next six months will facilitate the transition to achieve economies of scale and cost savings.
CSC A/NZ managing director, Seelan Nayagam, said its ability to meet core requirements on enhanced services and delivery quality were key factors in its selection process.“With CSC’s recent acquisition of UXC, we are looking forward to helping Transport for NSW realise even further efficiencies with our combined capabilities,” Nayagam said.
