Optus Business has locked-in a contract extension with security vendor Suretek to the tune of $40 million for the ongoing delivery of 1345 Securecall services.
The contract will see Suretek’s alarm service delivered via the Optus network through to the end of 2020.
The Securecall service facilitates back-to base alarm signalling between security panels and monitoring centres. The partnership with Optus will provide Suretek with connectivity, intelligent network routing and additional voice and data capabilities.
The original partnership kicked off in 2013 as a five-year, $60 million contract, with Suretek seeing the telco's investment in 4G as an ideal opportunity to advance their own product offering.
John Paitaridis, Optus Business managing director said the relationship would continue to deliver innovative services to the security industry.
“As a specialist provider of security solutions including wireless alarm communications, remote video-monitoring and redundancy solutions, Optus will support Suretek with inbound voice, as well as fixed and wireless data services,” he said.
Suretek managing director Glenn Smith said the deal was a boon for the vendor’s resellers.
“The partnership renewal will ensure continued strong support for Suretek’s channel partners until 2020, laying down a firm foundation for the future of Australian monitoring centre and installations companies,” he said.
