SABMiller has awarded T-Systems IT contract to provide its global backbone and European network.
New network capabilities to be introduced by T-Systems will increase the volume of traffic that is supported on available bandwidth while reducing total cost of ownership.
“We have decided to implement a multi-vendor global data network. T-Systems is a well-positioned partner for our technology infrastructure in Europe and core services, offering us the capabilities we require from a world-class network, and capable of supporting SABMiller’s future growth,” said Peter Brickley, SABMiller Global CIO.
The new network will deliver access to data for approximately 12,000 SABMiller end-users. In addition, T-Systems will provide capabilities such as Security; Telepresence; Remote Access; IP-VPN and Application Performance Monitoring.
“In today’s complex IT landscapes it is critical that we excel at partnership models with other parts of a customer’s eco-system of suppliers. Our combined IT and telecoms depth of experience coupled with our service integration heritage give us the confidence and skill to optimize collaboration with other partners in the SABMiller supply chain to deliver added value,” said Casper Malig, UK managing director at T-Systems.
