Posten Norden enters telephony and data communication deals

Posten Norden has signed contracts with TeliaSonera for telephony, and with TCD for data communication, including video conferencing solutions. The new communication solutions give Posten Norden “a group-wide platform for achieving cost-efficient, quality-assured telephony and data communication,” the company said.

The new agreements provide Posten Norden with “integrated, efficient and standardised communication solutions”.

The operator said one of the main objectives of the procurement process was to reduce the number of suppliers. The agreements are for a four-year period with an extension option, involve approximately SEK 125m (EUR 13.9m) per year and cover the group’s operations in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.

The agreements do not include any volume guarantees.

TeliaSonera will become Posten Norden’s telephony supplier – its supplier of fixed IP and mobile telephony and purchased phones. Posten Norden currently has 10,000 fixed subscriptions/extensions and approximately 35,000 mobile subscriptions/connections. Based on these volumes, the telephony agreement involves approximately SEK 80m (EUR 8.9m) per year.

TDC will be Posten Norden’s supplier of WAN and video conferencing solutions. Posten Norden currently has 4,000 WAN connections and approximately 30 video conferencing solutions. Based on this, the data communication agreement involves approximately SEK 45m (EUR 5m) per year.

Commenting on the agreements, Joss Delissen, CIO at Posten Norden, said: “The new group-wide telephony and data communication solutions are further illustrations of the synergy effects made possible within the IT area through the formation of Posten Norden.

“After a coordinated Nordic procurement process, we will now have an even greater number of group-wide Nordic solutions while increasing our cost-efficiency and reliability. And by increasing our video conferencing options, we are also improving our environmental efficiency.”
