IT infrastructure solutions company EMC, has contracted South African telecoms provider Neotel for the migration of its communications network. EMC said it hoped the move would enhance performance in the current challenging economic environment.
The project, which includes installation of next-generation voice and data services in EMC’s new offices in Johannesburg, saw Neotel delivering a next-generation fibre network, with virtually no disruption to the client’s business operations.
Says Gerhard van der Merwe, managing director of EMC Computer Systems South Africa: “The success of the project has definitely fortified our relationship with Neotel and bodes well for the future. They met our challenges timeously and presented us with workable alternatives that have in turn enabled us to move to bigger premises without the usual associated headaches.”
EMC had taken the decision to move into larger offices on the back of strong growth over the last two year period. The company currently has 170 employees in South Africa, the majority of which resides in Johannesburg.
