The new agreement substantially deepens the cooperation between DNA and Veikkaus. Veikkaus has been a DNA customer since 2015, when their cooperation started with the company’s gaming room network.

“We’re proud that Veikkaus selected DNA as the supplier of this demanding network service. DNA has strong experience in supplying demanding network solutions both in Finland and internationally, and we will implement this delivery to the highest standard, too,” says Kenneth Grönroos, Sales Director, DNA.

Veikkaus’ new gaming network will comply with all the latest technical and information security requirements. It will also serve as an evolving state-of-the-art platform for Veikkaus’ future gaming development needs.

“Reliability is vitally important in all our gaming operations. Harmonising the telecommunications connections of our nationwide gaming network helps to facilitate the digitalisation of our sales locations and makes it easier for our customers to identify themselves. Ensuring uninterrupted connections is the key business consideration behind our new cooperation agreement,” says Timo Paajanen, Vice President, ICT Service Operations and Infrastructure at Veikkaus.

Service delivery will be launched this year with testing and piloting. The business locations will be connected to the harmonised network in stages, starting in April 2019.

The agreement between Veikkaus and DNA is for four years.
