What we do locally

BT China is part of BT Global Services - a global leader in managed networked IT services, operating globally and delivering locally to help our customers thrive in a changing world.

In China, we are able to draw from the vast experience, talent and capabilities from BT’s different practices around the world as well as partners in China to create innovative
and customised ICT solutions for our global and local customers.

BT arrived in China in 1995. Today we are stronger than ever before.

  • We have around 320 people dedicated to helping large multinational organizations to expand globally and within China.
  • We understand the importance of being close to our customers with 4 offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian and Shenzen.
  • We have network presence in over 330 cities around China, working closely with local partners China Unicom, China Telecom and CPCNet.
  • China is one of the most important sources of technology innovation and cost-effective supply. Huawei is one of BT’s suppliers and we have a global research partnership with ZTE.
  • We have some key accreditations in the industry – including Avaya Platinum and Cisco Gold partnership status.
  • We are recognised by Gartner as a leader in both the Global and Asia Pacific Network Service Provider Magic Quadrants. We’ve also just won Best Managed Services Provider at the Telecom Asia Awards for the 4th year running.

China is a huge and diversified market undergoing a significant transformation. It is rapidly moving away from the traditional image of a low cost manufacturing base to one driven by luxury brands, innovation, increasing front office functions, and the emergence of high value players. As we see more and more MNCs expanding into China, we are adapting how we operate to better serve our customers. We have invested in our portfolio, as well as our people, ensuring we have unique sector expertise in place to address the specific needs of our customers. We also understand the importance of building close relationship with key strategic partners in China. At BT China, we are very confident and excited about the future.” Annabella Yau, Managing Director, BT North East Asia
