Transition Networks Product Deployed: The ION Platform
TELUS is Canada’s fastest-growing nationwide telecommunications company, with 12.5 million subscriber connections, including 8.4 million wireless subscribers, 1.6 million high-speed Internet subscribers, 1.4 million residential network access lines and 1 million TELUS TV customers. TELUS provides a wide range of communications products and services, including wireless, data, Internet Protocol (IP), voice, television, entertainment and video, and is Canada’s largest healthcare IT provider.
Recently, TELUS had been utilizing multiple vendors’ equipment to provide customers with business Ethernet and enterprise data services. This complicated network maintenance created challenges with troubleshooting, required more network infrastructure equipment inventory, and made vendor management more complex. TELUS needed to simplify their service operations in order to gain more control over their networks. To address this challenge, the national Canadian service provider conducted an extensive evaluation of vendors and solutions that could allow them to simplify service operations and gain more control over their network by standardizing on a single network platform and consolidating vendors.
