ScottishPower is delivering voice over IP between five regional control centres to slash communications costs.

ScottishPower is using Thus’ core IP network to enablethe connectivity.

The carrier’s network uses multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) technology to deliver quality of service to calls.

The network is providing a backbone for ScottishPower's voice over IP communications between five locations at Cathcart, Falkirk, Warrington, Wrexham and Caernafon.

The network is also providing IP data connectivity between all sites and the company’s Kirkintilloch Scottish headquarters. 

Jim McEwan, ScottishPower head of IT business services, said, "The MPLS network will bring a number of immediate benefits to ScottishPower, including reducing the number of links required to each site. 

“We will also be able to monitor the actual traffic usage on each link, enabling us to forecast bandwidth requirements in the future."
