BT and T-Systems partner to optimise global reach for international customers
DC 17-095 (01 March 2017)
Building on 2016 agreement, new partnership extends T-Systems' international reach and improves utilisation of BT’s network
BT and T-Systems today announced a partnership agreement that will enable T-Systems to offer their customers the option of using a range of network services from BT to connect their operations all around the world. This new agreement comes just over two months after both partners announced that BT customers would be able to connect to T-Systems’ data centres to access SAP cloud services.
The new partnership means that, in the future, T-Systems and BT will be able to interconnect their networks to meet the requirements of individual customers. This will allow T-Systems to increase its international reach by more than 60 per cent, enabling the company to offer seamless connectivity to its international customers for specific global network services such as MPLS.
We are looking forward to working closely with T-Systems to give their customers more choice in the way they can leverage networks to accelerate their global expansion and optimise their technology investments. In addition to our existing multinational customers, this agreement will allow us to serve an extended customer base via T-Systems. This agreement will also help maximise the utilisation of our existing assets and sustainably increase our own competitiveness, bringing long-term benefits to BT customers. Coming after our recent agreement enabling our customers to access SAP services hosted in T-Systems data centres, this is a new step in the development of a mutually beneficial partnership between both companies.”
- Luis Alvarez, Global Services CEO, BT
Our international corporate customers already benefit from our powerful network. By interconnecting with BT’s network, we offer our customers a substantial increase in global reach. The partnership with BT is an excellent example of how T-Systems plans to work with strong partners to further drive our international business forward.”
