Mitel contract for 52k IP lines for Dutch government

Mitel has been awarded a six-year contract to supply 96 institutions of the Dutch government with future-proof IP communications solutions.

The large-scale IP deployment is part of OverheidsTelecom 2006 (OT2006), a Dutch government program whereby a number of telecom services are tendered in one master agreement by ministries and other government authorities and subdivided into clusters. The OT2006 cluster covered by this contract will, amongst others, see eight ministries, seven provincial authorities, 30 municipalities and 51 administrative bodies and advisory boards totalling more than 52,000 lines move to a Mitel platform over the next four years.
