Telent receives telecommunications contracts

Telent, a technology services company, has received two telecommunications framework contracts from Network Rail, covering its western and southeast regions.

The company will provide the telecommunications equipment and services necessary to renew Network Rail’s operational railway communication networks and systems over the next 12-18 months.

The two new agreements follow the award to Telent in 2005 of a five-year framework contract for the southeast region, under which the company’s Rail business installed, commissioned and tested a range of telecommunications equipment.
