Cable & Wireless Panama, part of Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), has won a managed services contract to install and maintain telecommunications and IT systems in the new National Assembly building in Panama City.

Cable & Wireless Panama will install telecoms equipment, create a Local Area Network (LAN) covering the building and will use fibre optic cabling to connect the building to other sites and offices of the Panamanian parliament. The company will also manage the relocation of data and virtual services from the existing National Assembly building to a data centre in the new building.

As part of the contract, Cable & Wireless Panama will configure, maintain and provide training for voice and data communications, computer security and power protection for a period of three years.

Laurie Bowen, Chief Executive Officer of CWC Business Solutions, the company’s business-to-business unit, commented:

“This project shows our capability in delivering core telecoms services to the highest standards. The communications systems required by Panama's National Assembly will be of critical importance to the functioning of the country's Government. We have a strong track record of delivering solutions to the Government in Panama, and are delighted they have again trusted us with this important project.”

Jorge Nicolau, Chief Executive Officer of Cable & Wireless Panama, said:

“For Cable & Wireless Panama it is a great opportunity to be part of the modernisation process of an important branch of the Panamanian State and contribute by supplying the most advanced telecommunications solutions and services.”

The National Assembly is the headquarters of the country’s legislature, the General Assembly. The new US$26 million building will provide an office for each member of the General Assembly and modern facilities for members of the diplomatic corps.
