Cirrus Networks has landed a managed service contract with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, a 2500-staff cancer research, education and treatment centre based in Melbourne.
Also known as Peter Mac, the client is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer.
Cirrus will manage network services, including IP network carriage and telephony services, across Peter Mac’s new Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) building.
The contract also extends to infrastructure support for Peter Mac’s four additional campus sites across Melbourne and regional Victoria.
“Cirrus is delighted to have won this competitive tender through the Victorian team and to work with such a high-quality organisation as Peter Mac,” Cirrus managing director Matt Sullivan said.
“Winning this high-profile, healthcare managed service contract highlights Cirrus’ ongoing ability to demonstrate innovative value-based solutions for clients and continues its success in striving to be the market leader in managed services.”
The contract was set to commence immediately, and also includes performance, business continuity and availability targets.
“We are delighted to partner with Cirrus to manage the day-to-day operation of our network infrastructure,” said Erminia Schiavone, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre director of ICT.
“The network is absolutely critical to the delivery of technology services to Peter Mac, and they have demonstrated an understanding of the requirement to provide onsite and proactive network management in order to deliver reliable, responsive and cost-effective network services to Peter Mac and our building partners.”
Perth-headquartered Cirrus expanded its operations to Melbourne in March last year after acquiring NGage Technology Group for $2.5 million, bringing together two high-performers from the CRN Fast50 awards.
Cirrus placed third in the 2017 Fast 50 list after posting 176 percent revenue growth, raking in $53.9 million for the year. NGage most recently held the 10th spot in the 2016 Fast 50 before being acquired.
Earlier this month, Cirrus’s Western Australia business won a storage contract with Racing and Wagering Western Australia, the state’s regulator for metropolitan and country Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing.
In the announcement, Cirrus said its Western Australian business continues to be “the engine room”, with growing market share as a “provider of choice” in major market sectors such as resources, financials, education, health and not for profit community services.
