Tandberg and Dimension Data have won a teleconferencing tender with the NSW Department of Education and Training (DET) as part of the state’s $158 million Connected Classroom project.
Under the contract, Dimension Data and Tandberg will deliver a solution for the department to securely connect 2200 locations – one for each state school and TAFE in NSW – via multi-site high-definition video and audio conferencing.
The integrator has been involved in the NSW DET’s Connected Classrooms program since its inception, Dimension Data NSW state manager, Pete Murray, said.
“The original contract was for end points, this is for the bridging technology,” he said. “DET is a highly valued customer of ours, and we work with it in areas outside of the Connected Classrooms program.”
Murray said the tender was competitive, though he declined to comment on who else submitted bids.
Other recent tender wins for DiData include a child safety contract with the NSW Department of Community Services (DoCS), an extension of an arrangement with the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) to deploy Riverbed appliances, and a managed services contract with Queensland-based healthcare provider, Blue Care.
