Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise today announced a new strategic relationship with Centerprise International Ltd, one of the UK's leading IT service specialists.
Centerprise International will integrate Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's technically flexible solutions and advanced networking technology as an integral part of its IT infrastructure offering at a time when Centerprise International looks to open up further business opportunities in the UK with a strong focus toward Government, healthcare and education verticals.
Centerprise International has already secured the first contract in the Treasury’s HMT ICT 2015 Programme to deliver wireless services based on Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise network equipment. This win adds to a number of previously announced successful go-to-market strategies which include Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and strong business partner relationships delivering its infrastructure solutions into the fast growing data centre and cloud markets.

Over the last 30 years it has established a reputation for supplying high-end solutions to the public sector and corporate clients. Centerprise International will deliver Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise campus LAN and data centre technologies to market in the UK, as it looks to strengthen its network infrastructure solutions offers.
Richard Austin, Group Marketing and Communications Director, Centerprise International, said “Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is strong in education, local government and healthcare solutions, with technically impressive equipment, so this is an excellent fit for us. We have been able to develop a great working relationship with the team at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
