Telstra cloud to deliver the mail for Australia Post
Posted on 3-Jul-2012 19:58. | Tags Filed under: News.

As Australia Post moves into a new era of delivering innovative services for Australians, Telstra will support the enterprise by connecting Australia Post customers across the country with the latest telecommunication, IT and Australian based cloud services in a new agreement signed by both organisations.

The deal will see Telstra provide a managed IP network, mobile services including the latest smartphones and tablets, unified communication services as well as a locally based, secure cloud services to support the new Digital MailBox service.

Catriona Larritt, Australia Post General Manager Post Digital said the announcement demonstrated the organisation’s strong commitment to expanding its capabilities through digital services.

”We’re excited to be working with Telstra to make it even easier for customers to access our services all across the country,” Ms Larritt said.

Under the terms of the agreement Telstra will help Australia Post move its current product-based infrastructure to a new managed services network that enables Australia Post to deliver new products and services to its customers throughout its retail and distribution network.

Paul Geason, Group Managing Director, Telstra Enterprise & Government, said the new deal represents another large enterprise that has entrusted Telstra to manage its telecommunications and network services.

“Telstra is focused on delivering the best network services for large organisations and the agreement with Australia Post is testament to the trust corporations are placing in Telstra to design, build and manage their telecommunication and network services,” Mr Geason said.

“The investments Telstra has been making in network application and services, such as our $800 million investment in cloud computing capabilities*, means we are able to provide nation-wide reach and secure, reliable services. Australia Post has selected our cloud to host their Digital MailBox service and Telstra will also use the Digital MailBox to complement our existing digital options such as our website and mobile applications.”

The agreement will also see Telstra provide service management expertise for the roll out of the Australia Post IT network transformation project, as well as a new integrated service desk for all Telstra services provided to the organisation.

“Large organisations in Australia are talking to Telstra about how we can work together to provide and manage their network services allowing them to focus on their core business needs and objectives,” Mr Geason said.
