Swisscom’s Italian operation FASTWEB has signed a seven-year managed services contract with vendor Ericsson, which will see FASTWEB’s two data centres consolidated.

The contract includes systems integration, management and maintenance of FASTWEB’s data centres and managed operations of IT infrastructure.

Ericsson claims that FASTWEB will benefit from advanced IT architecture, increased automation, a lower environmental impact and more flexibility and capacity.

"This is an important step for FASTWEB and choosing the right partner was essential. Ericsson's solution had the right mix of innovation, latest technology and controlled approach. We will be able to benefit from a more scalable and powerful platform, supporting enhanced services," said Mario Mella, CTO of FASTWEB.
