Qantas to uplift comms with five-year TPG Telecom deal – Telco/ISP

Qantas is transferring its set and mobile voice expert services to TPG Telecom under a 5-calendar year, “multi-million dollar” settlement.

The settlement will see the airline “modernise its domestic communications network … with the addition of a new fibre network that will present voice and data carriage expert services throughout its head offices and airport terminals in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Darwin,” TPG Telecom reported.

“The changeover of set voice expert services has previously commenced with the transfer of the Qantas 1300/1800 inbound client guidance figures to TPG Telecom’s mobile network, with far more voice expert services to follow,” the telco reported in a assertion.

“Ninety per cent of the flag carrier’s mobile expert services have [also] moved to TPG’s mobile network, ensuing in lessened expenses and improved assistance degrees for the airline.”

It was noted that Telstra beforehand held the Qantas connectivity offer.

Qantas’ team CIO Sam Charmand reported the new total-of-business connectivity settlement “will participate in an important job in Qantas’s IT shipping transformation to lessen value and complexity as it implements its a few-calendar year, publish-Covid restoration strategy.”

“It is far more important than at any time that Qantas has a trusted, rapidly and secure communications network so that we can remain linked as an organisation and importantly, to our prospects,” Charmand reported.

“[TPG Telecom] have properly transitioned the bulk of our set voice expert services inside of months, showcasing the benefit of their automation capacity, and they have been responsive and versatile which is precisely what we need our suppliers to be.”

TPG Telecom reported the Qantas offer marked the beginning of a new tactic at the telco to consider a larger share of the authorities and big business current market.

The telco indicated that it “should be equipped to attain $one billion-a-calendar year business revenue… by 2025.”

Qantas renegotiated terms with quite a few of its IT suppliers previous calendar year as the pandemic impacted its business operations.
