Our strategic engagement with Microsoft

With Microsoft, we have strategic engagement across all our lines of business - from gaming through to hyperscale cloud. We’re transforming our data centres and cloud proposition with Microsoft Azure. So we have best-in-class hybrid solutions that incorporate new dynamic network services for secure, low latency consumption. We're working together on developments for Microsoft Teams, and we're collaborating on new flexible options for direct routing connectivity.

We give you the choice and flexibility to access the cloud services you need.

 

Cloud-based communication and collaboration subscription services, anytime, anywhere

Our One Cloud Microsoft solutions give you great quality voice, presence, instant messaging and conferencing by guaranteeing the bandwidth and stability you need for Skype for Business, Office 365 and Teams. People want the freedom to work when and where they can be most productive and our Mobile Device Management solutions can be used to provide additional controls for Microsoft mobile clients and hybrid environments, while ensuring security of your network, applications and devices.

 

Our Dynamic Network Services with Microsoft Azure

We provide a gateway between our dynamic network services and Microsoft Azure cloud platform using Microsoft ExpressRoute. This means you can bypass the public internet when connecting to Azure, by going through a private connection, offering you more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies, and higher security than typical internet connections. And we can help you transition your business towards cloud and managing your Azure environment too.
