THUS has won a contract valued at £1.3 million with Brewin Dolphin Securities, the UK’s largest independent private client portfolio manager, to provide a converged next generation WAN. THUS will be an additional key provider linking over 35 Brewin Dolphin offices and adding resilience for future applications such as VoIP currently being implemented.
Raymond Logan, Head of IS Infrastructure for Brewin Dolphin comments, “We chose to work with THUS because of their ability to provide low latency, high speed resilient networks. We were impressed by their existing services to other clients and the innovations which were demonstrated to us. The ability to have THUS provide direct connectivity from their points of presence in the UK meant that we did not have to rely on more than one provider for tail circuits. This helps to reduce points of failure at the major Brewin Dolphin Offices and increases the robustness that our organisation requires for mission critical applications and future VOIP technologies”
Phil Male, Chief Operating Officer, THUS plc comments, “Brewin Dolphin needed to ensure a highly resilient infrastructure due to the high percentage of employees dependent on its ability to access information. We have provided consultancy and support through every step of the migration process and the end result will mean Brewin Dolphin can deal with today’s requirements as well as being scalable to meet those of the future.
