Vodafone-UK-APN-SettingsTelecom network service Vodafone has announced a new 10-year contract with EDF Energy to transform the company’s communications and IT infrastructure.
Under the contract, Vodafone will cover all its generation business facilities in the UK, including nine offices, three data centers and 11 power stations, according to a press release issued by the company. 

The new Vodafone network will provide four times more bandwidth than it currently holds and will allow new services such as video conferencing and collaborative working. Vodafone will offer new wi-fi capabilities within all the facilities, replacing legacy paper-based systems for the first time by tablets and other mobile devices.

EDF Energy will benefit from a new digital platform to enable the delivery of EDF Energy’s IT strategy and 2020 vision for its generation business. The platform will improve training systems, support regulatory compliance and give more flexibility in how employees are able to work. Vodafone will also provide a dedicated on-site support team for EDF Energy to complement the existing in-house teams.

Nigel Pettifer, head of Infrastructure, IT Operations at EDF Energy, said, “We were looking for a partner to help us with a double challenge – upgrading our network while at the same time bringing greater transparency, control and stability to the investment needed to maintain the network.”
