IT services provider Cirrus Networks has signed a $2.5 million contract to offer managed services to Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth.
The five year contract will see the publicly-listed company manage data networks and voice infrastructure at the Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth entertainment complexes.
Crown Melbourne resort has a casino, three hotels, function rooms, restaurants and shopping and entertainment facilities, operating 2,628 electronic gaming machines and 540 table games. The Crown Perth also has a casino, 1168 rooms and 32 restaurants and bars.
Specifically, Cirrus Networks will provide the management of network services to meet critical performance, business continuity and availability targets.
“The managed service contract win highlights Cirrus’ ongoing ability to demonstrate innovative value-based solutions for clients and continues the success in our goal to be the market leader in enterprise managed services," Cirrus managing director Matt Sullivan said.
Cirrus' put forward a solution to support day-to-day administration, monitoring and management of the network within specified availability targets, which was key to win the tender.
In March, Cirrus won a $1.6 million networking maintenance and support contract with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) through its recent acquisition, Correct Communications.
The deal was for the supply of equipment relating to Austrade network requirements, including associated maintenance and support. The company said at the time it represented a key strategic win for Correct Communications.
Cirrus Networks announced in November last year it had struck a deal to acquire Correct Communications, a Canberra-based systems integrator, in a share purchase agreement set to be worth up to $5 million.
