Vanco, the virtual network operator (VNO), has announced three major customer contracts to supply communications and data services to large companies.

Vanco, which provides enterprise telecoms by patching together different services from various providers to get the best price and service, said it has signed deals with the Hilton hotel group, tyre and car parts company Continental and large Belgium printer Esko.

The multi-million pound Hilton deal sees Vanco providing connectivity and data services to 270 locations across around 50 countries.

The Continental deal involves Vanco replacing AT&T and Horizon for comms provision and connecting 180 sites and supporting 30,000 users. This deal also covers data security systems.

With the Esko contract, EDS will be replaced as a comms provider. Vanco CEO Allen Timpany said Esko had found that EDS could not deliver a cost effective solution for its comms, so it switched to Vanco.

The deals were announced by Vanco at its annual press and customer conference in Prague.

Companies like Vanco and Sirocom give companies the option of avoiding single contracts with providers and aim to get the best price for connectivity from various suppliers.
