EasyJet outsources network infrastructure

Budget airline easyJet has deployed new LAN infrastructure and voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems as part of a network outsourcing deal.

The budget airline carried out the migration to new network services provided by Alfred McAlpine IT services, as part of a move to new 30,000 sq ft corporate headquarters at Luton Airport.

He also said a key part of the deal was ensuring the IT networking part of the move provided a smooth migration process. "Due to the nature of our business and working in such a fast-paced service industry, it was crucial that this was a smooth transition - for both the company and our customers," said Codd.

"Alfred McAlpine IT Services successfully handled the migration of 400 users, over a four day period, to the new facility without any outage to the service, which is a great result."
