T-Systems has won a contract to provide brewer SABMiller with its global backbone and European network.

The enterprise arm of Deutsche Telekom said it would introduce new network capabilities to increase the volume of traffic that is supported on available bandwidth while reducing total cost of ownership.
 
The new network will deliver access to data for approximately 12,000 SABMiller end-users. In addition, T-Systems will provide security, telepresence, remote access, IP-VPN and application performance monitoring services.
 
SABMiller is one of the world’s leading brewers with more than 200 beer brands and some 70,000 employees in over 75 countries. It is also one of the world’s largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products.
 
Casper Malig, UK Managing Director at T-Systems, said the company was delighted to have secured a “very important” agreement.
 
“In today’s complex IT landscapes it is critical that we excel at partnership models with other parts of a customer’s eco-system of suppliers,” he added.

The deal builds on several deals the company made last year. For example, it won contracts with budget supermarket chain ALDI Nord, the European Commission and lift manufacturer Kone Corporation.
 
Last November, research firm Telco 2.0 unveiled a report which said that a greater focus on enterprise communications was a key part of operators’ strategy to avoid losing up to €126 billion of their core revenues over the next five years.
