Primus signs three-year data network deal with Red Cross

Agreement between the telco and humanitarian organisation worth in excess of $1 million.

Primus Telecom has been selected for a three-year deal to provide data network services to the Red Cross in Australia.

The Red Cross is a humanitarian and charity organisation.

As part of the deal, which exceeds $1 million, the telco has designed a managed private IP network.

The network has a multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) core which can integrate voice, data and video traffic on a single platform. It provides 50Mbps Internet bandwidth on an unlimited data plan.

The network is capable of scaling bandwidth in the event of a natural disaster.

Primus will connect the organisation’s 83 branch offices for now with opportunity to link up a further 180 sites to the network. These additional sites should come online later this year.

The deal was a result of the Red Cross’ strategic review of its communication services.

“As a rapid response organisation, we value the provision of Primus’ end-to-end account management and help desk, which adds another layer of confidence and expertise to their impressive service delivery,” Australian Red Cross director of IT, Warren Don, said in a statement.

Primus was recently acquired by M2 Communications.
