THUS, a provider of voice, data, internet and interactive services, has won a multimillion-pound contract from a regional newspaper and internet publisher to provide a converged MPLS Wide Area Network (Wan).

THUS will link more than 160 Johnston Press sites, including many local newspaper offices, with a Wan network to prepare the company for its migration to voice over IP (VoIP).

THUS will provide a range of connections to 43 core sites and private access DSL (PaDSL) connections at 113 regional sites around the UK.

The network will enable Johnston Press to support all its editorial and advertising databases as well as e-mail, internet, intranet, financial data, page transfers and voice calls in the future.

In addition to this, the network will be convergence ready, allowing Johnston Press to roll out VoIP and move away from traditional telephony between its sites in the future.
