REFER Telecom selected to offer an alternative CPD to the Tax and Customs Authority

10/18/2013

REFER Telecom will implement the alternative Data Processing Centre nationwide, also called disaster recovery (DR) site by the Tax and Customs Authority (AT).

The project includes the installation of up to twenty AT racks and the supply of a broadband connection, redundant and fully based on fiber optics, between the head office of this entity in Lisbon and the REFER Telecom Datacenter in Contumil (OPorto Operating Control Center).

The confidence earned from this entity, responsible for tax collection, has reinforced the presence of the REFER Group in the public sector, thus joining others such as the Ministry of Internal Affairs to which REFER Telecom already provides identical services.

On the 15th October 2013, a joint decree of the Secretaries of State for Fiscal Affairs and Infrastructures, Transports and Communications on this matter was published in the Official Gazette (no. 199).
