Primus added to government panel


Primus has been added to the federal government's data centre facilities panel and will offer services from its Melbourne facilities.

Primus Australia CEO Tom Mazerski said today the company's Melbourne facility, was a key point of interconnect and carrier services, and the company fully supported the federal government's initiative  and would 'lend our expertise and resources in helping government agencies avoid costs and improve sustainability.'

Matthew Proctor, Primus Australia's general manager data centre & IT said that the company's recent integration of 'green' initiatives, such as cold-aisle containment technology, provided a 'flexible and expandable capability for the Federal Government and other organisations.'

"We believe being included on the panel reinforces Primus Australia's long standing as a leader in the IT & Telecommunications sector, and demonstrates our commitment to ongoing sustainable and responsible facilities growth for cloud computing and data storage.'

Just last month, Primus Australia announced it has completed the first stage of its fibre network transformation, introducing Optical Transport Network (OTN) capabilities to its existing high capacity fibre rings in Australia.

In results just out today, Primus Australia's parent company in the United States released its third quarter results showing that in Australia its revenues declined 10 percent on a constant currency basis, but with decreases in traditional voice, DSL, and wholesale services partially offset by increases in data centre and IP-based services.

The Australian business recorded net revenue of $US71.7 million for Q3 this year, an increase of 4.9 percent from $US68.4 million in the third quarter last year. The impact of foreign currency translation was a positive $US10.2 million.
