Computer services firm and solution provider Qwest Communications International, Inc. expressed it had signed a two-year contract with Dallas-based company Affiliated Computer Services (ACS). ACS provides business process outsourcing and IT solutions and will use Qwest to help increase the scope and geography of its services.
ACS intends to connect domestic data centers to Qwest’s MPLS-based network using the iQ Networking wide-area network platform. Using Qwest’s resources, the computer services firm will create a data infrastructure that will be used for all ACS locations and let the company have better control over its network and reduce costs, increasing efficiency.
According to spokespeople for ACS, computer services firm Qwest will help to build business and networking capabilities and allow the company to better compete within its industry, both nationally and globally. The relationship will hopefully help the process of doing business with ACS customers faster and simpler.
Qwest released iQ Networking early in 2004. The platform is the company’s convergence solution and can support many different applications, including VoIP, messaging and many other IPcommunications.
