THUS plc today announced that it has won a contract valued at £1.3 million with Brewin Dolphin Securities, the UK's largest independent private client portfolio manager, to provide a converged next generation wide area network (WAN).

THUS will be an additional key provider linking over 35 Brewin Dolphin offices and adding resilience for future applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP) currently being implemented.

As a UK financial services provider, Brewin Dolphin is heavily reliant on the transfer of data in its day-to-day business. Significant volumes of data need to be moved between offices to ensure that Brewin Dolphin is able to stay ahead of its peers in a highly competitive field. THUS's experience of deploying mission-critical networks to the financial sector, made it an obvious choice for Brewin Dolphin, which selected the company following a competitive tender.

Raymond Logan, Head of IS Infrastructure for Brewin Dolphin comments, "We chose to work with THUS because of their ability to provide low latency, high speed resilient networks. We were impressed by their existing services to other clients and the innovations which were demonstrated to us. The ability to have THUS provide direct connectivity from their points of presence (POP's) in the UK meant that we did not have to rely on more than one provider for tail circuits. This helps to reduce points of failure at the major Brewin Dolphin Offices and increases the robustness that our organisation requires for mission critical applications and future VOIP technologies."

Any network downtime has an immediate and serious impact on business performance in the financial services sector and unless information is immediately available, Brewin Dolphin is less able to provide the immediate and quality service its clients expect. THUS's state of the art, next-generation network will enable Brewin Dolphin to support all its databases as well as email, Internet, Intranet, transactional and financial data.

In addition, the network will be convergence ready, allowing Brewin Dolphin to roll out VoIP and move away from traditional telephony between its sites in the future.

Phil Male, Chief Operating Officer, THUS plc comments, "Brewin Dolphin needed to ensure a highly resilient infrastructure due to the high percentage of employees dependent on its ability to access information. We have provided consultancy and support through every step of the migration process and the end result will mean Brewin Dolphin can deal with today's requirements as well as being scalable to meet those of the future.

"THUS is a proven player in the financial sector, already providing technologically advanced solutions to a number of companies. Through this experience, we understand the challenges facing this sector and are well positioned to tailor solutions that provide our customers with a competitive edge. Building on an existing relationship with the company in order to be selected as its primary carrier is testament to our appreciation and understanding of its business," Male continued.
