We offer BT Optical Connect with a variety of service options and configurations in order to tailor the service to the specific requirements of your organisation, including:

  • Geographical ranges to suit you, from local metropolitan areas to intercity coverage, depending on your selected service pack.
  • The choice of single-access fibre routes with unprotected wavelengths and dual-access diverse fibre routes made up of a worker and protection route.

Your data storage can be replicated over diverse sites using BT Optical Connect’s support for storage protocols. BT Optical Connect is scalable, a service can start small with a single 2.5Gbps wavelength (say 2 x Gigabit Ethernet) and grow up to 88 wavelengths, with up to 100Gbps per wavelength. Each wavelength can carry a mix of client interfaces as required, all across the same fibres, so reducing cost and deployment complexity
