UXC Connect plays key role in major transport project

UXC Connect has begun a $2.1 million, year-long contract to assist Transport for NSW as part of the state government’s milestone data centre migration.

The contract runs until mid-June in 2015 and will see UXC configure and implement equipment it provided under a previous contract with Transport for NSW.

The move is part of a major project to streamline IT services across all NSW government agencies into a government-owned data centre. The facility will provide access to more than 25,000 staff across the Transport cluster, a government spokesperson told CRN.

The work has already seen $3.8 million of work awarded to UXC Connect to deliver networking equipment in preparation for the Transport for NSW migration.

The applications, consulting and infrastructure provider also has a managed network services contract with Transport for NSW, CEO Ian Poole told CRN earlier this year.

Parent company UXC Limited has enjoyed record revenues, reporting an 8.2 percent increase to $643.4 million in the financial year ending June 30, 2014. However underlying profit before tax fell 13 percent to $25.6 million, excluding the cost of acquisitions and redundancies.
