Handle traffic explosions

Manage your bandwidth demand using the right technology for your business.

Overview

The pressure is on to deliver greater agility and drive an ever-better customer experience.

With a growing portfolio of applications and the need for faster access to data, it’s likely you’re experiencing the inevitable demand for more bandwidth.

What if you could meet this demand by deploying rigorously tested new technologies and platforms that will support your continually changing infrastructure?

SD-WAN, for example, gives you dynamic control over the prioritisation of your applications, helping you to better manage what's using your bandwidth.

Because of their added security and performance, private networks, in the form of MPLS or ethernet, still have a role to play in many environments.

We’re continually evaluating and implementing the latest networking technologies for organisations across the globe, so we have in-depth experience and expertise of what will work in any environment.

We’ll help you to create a roadmap to identify when to advance your network and what changes to make. And because we only work with scalable and proven solutions that have a valid, defined evolutionary path, you won’t be stranded on a technology island.

What is Agile Connect Nuage SD-WAN?

Shape your future infrastructure, improve application performance, and meet additional bandwidth demand with BT and Nuage Networks

In a world of change you need a dynamic network to rely on. Most businesses need a flexible and agile network that can evolve at speed and scale. All user experiences (UX) must be optimised and secured, from the corporate office to home office, data centre, branch, and cloud.

Agile Connect is our unique SD-WAN solution*, combining Nokia’s Nuage Networks technology with BT’s expertise to help global businesses deliver consistently great UX, managed centrally.

It’s unique to us because it’s built on and integrated into our global network, plus it’s controlled through our portal - the same portal you can use to control your wider network services. It comes with pre-built regional gateways, hub connectivity, and added security including protection against cyber-attacks. You can control the service yourself or we can control it for you.

How does Agile Connect Nuage SD-WAN work? 

BT and Nuage fit the bill for complex, multinational enterprises.

The Nuage Networks technology creates an intelligent end-to-end network fabric, overlayed onto BT’s WAN, to connect all workloads through a single platform. It’s also embedded in our network service gateways, extending all the performance and cost benefits to the home-worker.

Our choice of right-sized, cost-efficient SD-WAN devices can be deployed anywhere, with consistent visibility and policy control, helping you provide more flexible return-to-office or home-working options, and future-proofing your business against disruption.

Our service also makes network governance easier, enabling customised and consistently applied security policies – and you can ensure home-workers are subject to the same security protocols as if they were in the office. You can also securely segment your network from within its perimeter by using micro-segmentation across devices and applications, protecting from within and enhancing security even further.
