Telecommunications firm Vocus Communications has signed a four-year agreement with Cricket Australia to deliver data network services for the sporting body.

Vocus, the incumbent provider, will provide high-speed Internet access to some stadiums and CA administrative offices to support the move to a self-managed software-defined network and a cloud-based environment.

A statement from Vocus said the agreement would mean expansion of support from 10 Cricket Australia sites to 14, with provision to rapidly scale up if needed.

Vocus Communications Enterprise and Government chief executive Andrew Wildblood said the company was delighted to continue supporting Cricket Australia.

“It’s an exciting continuation of a great partnership where Vocus Communications will help enable a network connectivity refresh with a full cloud first approach," he said.

"As we come into an exciting 2019 and 2020, an Ashes year in England, and then towards the T20 World Cup in Australia, our partnership is critical to enabling Cricket Australia’s strategy and we look forward to continuing and developing our support of them.”

Cricket Australia general manager of Technology, Michael Osborne, said the continued agreement was of benefit to CA and the communities supporting the sport.

“The need has arisen for Cricket Australia to enhance our current network requirements to enable delivery on our long-term strategy. After an extensive tender process, we’re pleased to continue our strong relationship with Vocus Communications," he said.

“Their ability to deliver high-speed, scalable, enterprise-grade Internet services will enable Cricket Australia to not only improve our internal capabilities, but, importantly, allow us to re-invest into our communities, including grassroots cricket.”
