According to the new agreement, the cooperation between DNA and the City of Espoo will be expanded to include a jointly agreed service management model in addition to telecommunications equipment and interfaces. In its service management, DNA invests especially in proactive operations, continuous improvement of services and support for the City of Espoo's business development.

DNA has been a supplier of telecommunications services to the City of Espoo for more than ten years, and the new agreement is about expanding and deepening the cooperation.

 "The City of Espoo is an important customer for us, and we are delighted that our cooperation is expanding. Espoo is knowledgeable customer and has plenty of expertise on telecommunications and demanding projects like this," says Kenneth Grönroos, sales director at DNA

The City of Espoo expects DNA, like other suppliers, to develop operations and services on its own initiative and to be customer-oriented.

"The aim of the tendering process is to bring significant improvements to the quality of services and the way in which they are implemented, using e.g. the latest technologies, tools and automation. The supplier's proactiveness and the ability to make high-quality and well-prepared development proposals will be the most important requirements for cooperation," says Pauli Sinivuori, the IT manager at the City of Espoo.

With the agreement, DNA’’s services to the City of Espoo will include network monitoring and management services, telecommunications equipment maintenance services, additional telecommunications connections, network security technology, equipment facility maintenance and telecommunications expert services. DNA is also building fibre infrastructure, and a joint project will be launched to develop the services.

The agreement is valid until further notice.
