High bandwidth ups the ante at Coral

Bookmaker Coral has deployed a high-bandwidth managed network to its 1,268 branches in the UK as part of a £7.1m, five-year contract with BT.

Bookmaker Coral has deployed a high-bandwidth managed network to its 1,268 branches in the UK as part of a £7.1m, five-year contract with BT.

Coral has replaced a narrowband network infrastructure that the firm's IT support and infrastructure manager, Neil McCrossen, said could no longer meet business requirements.

"Simultaneous data delivery to our 1,268 branches is key to delivering the high levels of service our customers have come to expect. We are looking for a flexible and scalable converged network, which will allow us to communicate with our staff, suppliers and customers," he said.

The new infrastructure has already started delivering cost savings, said McCrossen. "With a consolidated network, we will now be able to overlay new business services and multimedia applications such as voice over IP, which previously would not have been cost effective due to high infrastructure costs."
