Anittel Group Limited (AYG) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to provide Managed Voice Services to the Tasmanian Government. The services will be provisioned through Anittel’s Hosted Cisco Unified Communication (UC) infrastructure. The 5 year contract has a minimum value of approximately $7m with 3 x 3 year options to renew.
The value of the contract is expected to increase to a maximum of $17m over the initial term as the current Telstra provided Spectrum endpoints are replaced. If the full contract extension options are undertaken the value of the contract would be in the order of $45m. The final contract value depends upon the number of endpoints deployed and the type and feature set enabled for each endpoint. As the new agreement involves a progressive rollout, the full services revenue impact will not be reached until FY14.
TMD General Manager, Piero Peroni said, “Anittel’s managed voice service represents a bold and innovative technology direction. It enables us to build a service for the Tasmanian Government which will be a platform for integrated communications for the future.” Cisco Managing Director of Public Sector in Australia Ken Boal stated “Cisco shares the Tasmanian Government’s vision to create a more efficient government and transform delivery of services to the community. Cisco is delighted to work with Anittel and the Tasmanian Government, providing a platform that supports Tasmania’s public service and communities to connect and work together to create a better Tasmania.”
