BT promotes Fiona Stanley bid leader
Ms Altman led the bid for the new hospital, due for completion in 2014, which includes deploying a secure local area network and providing systems integration services, unified communications, mobility and conferencing technologies.
BT plans to build a highly resilient network infrastructure that will use cabled multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) technology on the campus for fast access, augmented by a Wi-Fi mesh network.
The hospital also intends to build an RFID service to track equipment such as scanners, ultrasound equipment and defibrillators.
Ms Altman was previously head of deal structuring for south-east Asia with BT and has worked as a senior deal architect and in commercial and sales development roles.
As part of this project, BT will create more than 70 jobs in Western Australia.
BT has also appointed Simon Gatward as chief operating officer. Mr Gatward joins from Macquarie Telecom, where he was a group executive responsible for customer service and operations.
