Operational simplicity and effectiveness
Managed services deliver maximized flawless IT environment. LHT chose TBS as preferred partner where quality meets demands and proficiency bridges expectations.
Lufthansa Technik (LHT) provides worldwide maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for aircraft, engines, and components. LHT prefers to use internal IT staff to deliver innovative applications supporting its primary mission and outsource mundane IT support and maintenance tasks – a costly and time-consuming distraction. To achieve this, LHT selected Telelink Business Services as a preferred Managed Services provider for professional network, server, and storage engineering services, along with 24/7 Support Desk.
Telelink Business Services supports LHT in several ways:
- 24/7 Support Desk with strict SLAs for incident response and resolution
- Network infrastructure migration, visibility, and observability
- Redesign and optimization of Wi-Fi networks
- Minimum IT engagement into daily maintenance
The project started in 2017 and evolved from a single small site in Sofia to 4 countries – Bulgaria, Malta, Hungary, and Puerto Rico, with overall 250+ devices. Tailor-made backup and service delivery management are also included in the scope of work.
A successful engagement with a managed service provider depends on technical capabilities and organizational culture fit. Telelink Business Services delivers on both, as our team of 150+ certified engineers work with clients in 40+ countries, across 4 continents. Secures essential network services availability for LHT across its worldwide locations and our experts are seen as an extension of the LTH in-house IT staff.
