ASX-list ICT services provider, Anittel, (ASX:AYG) has secured a five-year contract with the Tasmanian Government to roll out a new communications system.
The contract has a minimum value of $7 million, and involves three, three-year extension options to renew, seeing the value reach $17 million during the initial term as the current Telstra spectrum endpoints are replaced. If the full contract extension options are awarded, the value could reach $45 million.
The new communications system is based on Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solutions. Prior to winning the deal, Anittel set up a testing environment, implementing 100 new communication endpoints across four trial sites.
Anittel also expanded its national hosted infrastructure to include locally hosted nodes of the Cisco-based platform in Tasmania. The first full site implementation was completed at the earlier this month at the Tasmanian Department of Justice’s Devonport Police Station.
Anittel managing director and executive chairman, Peter Kazacos, said the deal and subsequent opportunities that come from it, underpins Anittel’s performance in the future.
“This project underpins our commitment to delivering collaboration and cloud based technologies to new and existing clients across Australia,” he said.
