Edith Cowan University selects Data#3 to transform future learning with a multi-million dollar service agreement

Data#3, one of Australia’s leading business technology providers, today announced that is has signed a multi-million dollar agreement with Edith Cowan University (ECU), whereby it will provide a highly available, scalable and future proof communications platform, from strategy, design and implementation, through to ongoing management.

Under the agreement, ECU will transform their existing network to the latest Cisco fixed and wireless technology, an investment that will allow ECU to deliver a range of new and innovative offerings to students, faculty and staff across the three ECU campuses.

Data#3 was selected from a panel of Cisco Gold Partners, with Data#3’s local Professional Services expertise, national education experience and demonstrated capability, as key factors in the selection as partner of choice.

Glenn McAtee, Data#3 General Manager – Western Australia, commented “We are delighted to work with ECU. This is an innovative and transformative project that will deliver a number of great outcomes to the university. The new solution will help to streamline costs and enhance efficiency and agility within ECU.”

Elizabeth Wilson, Chief Information Officer, ECU also welcomed the announcement “The replacement of the existing network with next generation infrastructure will enable the provision of advanced services such as rich multimedia learning experiences to students, faculty and staff across ECU campuses, and is a key strategic pillar of the future learning environment at ECU.”

Data#3 Chief Executive Officer, Laurence Baynham said, “Helping customers to transform their business through innovative technology is central to Data#3’s strategy. The success at ECU is a testament to our ongoing investment in the education sector and our reputation in the market for delivering successful outcomes through education specific services,” concluded Baynham.

On completion of the project, the platform will be managed by the Data#3 Managed Services team in a 3+2 year agreement that will see all network facilities including wireless, fixed, security and network management under the Data#3 outsource remit, allowing ECU to focus on strategic business initiatives.

The project is progressing to schedule and works should be complete in early 2016.
