Magdalene is to extend its 12-year relationship with Scottish Water after being chosen as its Operational Communications support partner, via a new principal contract partnership with Atos, a global leader in digital transformation. The agreement will see Magdalene extend its existing relationship with Scottish Water by another three years, with the possibility of a two year extension. Magdalene’s selection follows Atos’ successful tender for Scottish Water’s Operational Telecom Managed Service contract.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Atos and Magdalene will deliver the national maintenance of all radio tower infrastructure, scanning radio, microwave, Dedicated Network Partners (DNWP) PDH, satellite communications and head end infrastructure across Scottish Water’s two data centres. Magdalene will also provide 24/365 engineering support through its team in Coatbridge, managed by its carrier class network operations centre (NOC) in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire.
