Discount airline EasyJet has merged its data and IP telephony networks into a single local area network (Lan) at its new corporate headquarters at Luton Airport for greater flexibilty and scalabilty.

The airline said it was using a unified communications strategy to reduce support costs and ensure efficiency throughout all its processes. The strategy is also aimed at enabling the airline to easily expand its data and IP telephony capacity by adding servers as required.

The IT services department migrated the airline's existing telephony and data services to the new building as part of a five-year deal to manage IP voice and data services across easyJet's Luton campus.

A wireless Lan is also being implemented at the HQ to provide network access in meeting rooms as well as hot desk facilities for remote workers.

Bill Codd, service delivery manager at EasyJet IT said working in a fast-paced service industry, a smooth transition was crucial for the company and its customers.

"Alfred McAlpine successfully handled the migration of 400 users, over a four day period, to the new facility without any outage to the service, which is a great result," he said.

Codd said easyJet had chosen Alfred McAlpine because of its strong service management culture, sound track record and reliability.
