Commander and Nortel win $7m unified comms deal
RMIT university joins a line of education institutions investing in unified communications
Matthew Sainsbury 22 February, 2008 11:41:28
Commander and Nortel have signed a $7 million network upgrade contract with Melbourne's RMIT University. It is one of several recent unified communication wins for the networking vendor in the education market.

The RMIT deal is based on building a unified communications network and initially involves the deployment of 5000 Nortel IP handsets across RMIT's campuses. RMIT will also run trials of Nortel's Multimedia Communications Server (MCS), with the possibility of other unified communications applications being deployed.

Commander is working alongside Nortel on network design and management and will deploy and provide ongoing service and support for the solution for RMIT. The contract will be completed over the next two years, and Commander will also deploy the MCS solution if the trials are effective.

The network will be built around Nortel's Communication Server (CS) 1000 IP PBX serving 7000 endpoints and installed across RMIT University's three main campuses. Other components will include Nortel's MCS 5100 for multimedia conferencing and Nortel Contact Center 6.0 for an IP-based helpdesk infrastructure.

RMIT University has more than 3500 staff and 60,000 students. The education institution went to tender to upgrade its complete telephony network and short listed two vendors for the contract.

Nortel general manager of enterprise, Mark Fioretto, said the vendor chose to work with Commander as both had an existing relationship with RMIT, and together they had a strong knowledge of the university's environment and future needs.

Commander group general manager of corporate, Geoff Horth, said it was also the lead partner for Nortel in Australia with its Unified Communications Program under the Innovative Communications Alliance with Microsoft..

"This deployment is a significant one for Commander both in its scale and complexity. It draws on a broad cross-section of our systems integration and professional services resources," he said.

RMIT is one of several universities investing in unified communications infrastructure, Nortel said. The vendor has also announced two wins with Macquarie University in Sydney and the Edith Cowan University in Perth.

The new data network at Macquarie will be implemented by Nortel integration partner, 3D Networks. Financial details have not been disclosed.

The Edith Cowan win is the second phase in a five-year, multi-million dollar data network rollout.

Yep - I agree, all the bad news is out now so this should be a low point then a rise.

I feel Cdr's re-structuring is pretty spot-on conidering the mess this coys been left by previous management. Getting rid of 600 jobs is a great start as they had too many employees. The refinancing agreement gives them more breathing space, although the coy is always treading the adminsitration line. I give the financials of this coy to an accountant friend and she was horricfied that a coy making a billion in revenue could rack up so much debt, and the reason: too many employees, to many loss-making ventures and too much debt. It will be interesting to see what happens but I am in for look at 18c. people are preapred to but those miners who have heaps of debt and don't make a cent. Its risky but so is life.

Nup, I am out.

Sales staff have started either leaving or no-showing.

substantial holdings have been reduced

I may see this one back in at 10-15 cents if they dont firesale

cant see a bottom - they MUST be worth more than this in book value?

I stand corrected, it's not hit bottom. Now at 21c, I cant predict what will happen next.

It would make sense that this is the bottom.

The market knows of those tenders as they've been telegraphed for some time, and many of them are at incredibly low margins going up against IT megalith's that can afford to sustain the risk and payback models into future years (IBM, Dell, HP, DiData, Unisys, Kaz etc)

That being said, the value of the SP now is on par with the value of the telco business . . . perhaps they should shed the baggage of the rest of the org and concentrate on the core capability.

CDR will need to choose very carefully which tenders are cash positive. IE, there is no point in attempting to sell millions of dollars of ICT at 5% margin and a massive risk and liability just to take on more warehousing, staff or debt.

ICT bidding is not pretty when you are a small big fish, it's just not a fun place to be.
