Spanish ministry relies on BT for robust and secure corporate network interconnection node
Managing ballooning network traffic
As lieutenant-colonel in charge of the general-purpose wide area network for the Spanish Ministry of Defence, Emilio Rico Ruiz faced a huge challenge. He had to cater for an explosion in the use of networked services while ensuring the ministry’s connections were fully secure and always available.
A main internet interconnection node now links all the force’s corporate systems with the outside world. Thankfully, Emilio is able to rely on BT people working hand-in-hand with his team to ensure the node is always ready to serve the needs of the Ministry of Defence.
If I need to speak to someone from BT all I have to do is step outside my office. They’re right there. That’s handy for communication and essential for providing the quick, flexible service we require.”

Keeping a sharp lookout at the network’s edge
Security services are never more tested than where a network meets the rest of the world, out at its perimeter. Safety measures built into the node’s hardware and software keep a steady eye on ministry traffic to and from the internet to combat hackers and worse
Having one’s friends close at hand
Highly qualified technicians on call around the clock mean emergencies are never allowed to escalate into dramas. The ministry gets that reassurance from an onsite professional service team
