Manage and consolidate multiple networks

Prioritise your most important services while optimising costs.

Overview

Using multiple network providers can introduce a lot of complexity and finger pointing – particularly when something goes wrong. 

All the elements of your infrastructure are inter-related, so when you make a change to one - network, cloud, IT, or security - it can impact the others.

You want fast, secure and reliable network access on a global scale, where you can introduce new technology, such as a cloud service, without creating the potential for new security vulnerabilities.

What if you could get all the simplicity and control you needed with one global supplier?

Our SD-WAN capability offers control and visibility over your network, so you can combine different networks and still control the traffic over them.

With us, you can have a single, secure and agile platform that is made up of systems that work together on a global basis. You can also improve your infrastructure visibility and management and seamlessly add new capabilities.

You can evolve your infrastructure, knowing that we have the infrastructure and expertise globally, as well as locally, to support you.

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.
