BT recognised for the fifth consecutive year in the 2017 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Network Services, Pan-European, report

DC17-148 (30 March 2017)

BT given the highest scores by Gartner for Midsize European Network, Large European Network and Core City Backbone, reflecting three of the four use cases in the report

BT today announced that it has received the highest scores in three out of the four use cases evaluated in the 2017 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Network Services, Pan-European, report.

The report’s publication comes only one month after BT was positioned by Gartner, Inc, as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global for the 13th consecutive time.  The Critical Capabilities report accompanies the February 2017 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global. However, compared to the Magic Quadrant, which also assesses providers' completeness of vision and ability to execute, this report is focused solely on providers' current capabilities.

BT believes that the findings will provide valuable insight for its existing and prospective customers considering which network services provider to choose when developing their digital transformation strategies.
