The power behind the power
Energy giant Centrica has inked a five-year networking deal with Cable & Wireless.
The £79m deal will see C&W become Centrica's sole telecoms supplier following a tender process.
C&W will now migrate Centrica to an all IP infrastructure, consolidating the utility's own networks onto C&W's own IP network.
According to the telco, its network will connect up 61 sites and provide managed services to 111.
C&W recently landed another IP contract with Thames Water, in a three-year, multimillion-pound deal that will see the water company move to its IP-based hosted contact centre platform.
