The Hanover Housing Association has signed a managed network contract with THUS to support more than 460 sites across the country.
Hanover provides retirement housing and manages 18,000 properties across England.
THUS will create a converged voice and data network and link Hanover's head office and local offices to local housing estates.
Hanover required a communication network that would improve the efficiency of its back office systems and ensure the safety and security of residents and lone workers.

The contract will initially deliver a Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) IP VPN to securely carry voice and data traffic, allowing Hanover to support a growing number of remote workers who need to access and share information quickly and securely.
Richard Dryden, IS director at Hanover, said, "Thus offered us a solution that freed up our time to do our jobs and offered us a vision of what is possible in the future."
As the service roll out progresses, the THUS next-generation network will play a role in supporting the provision of Hanover's Alarm, OnCall and ExtraCare services.
These all play a direct role in ensuring the safety and security of vulnerable people in their own homes.
