Goethe-Institut trusts BT for unified communications and collaboration on a global basis

Promoting a connected culture

The Goethe-Institut needed a network, on which its critical business apps could depend, across 98 countries. Having first tried a combination of three regional suppliers, it chose to eliminate management problems by partnering with BT as its single worldwide service provider.

With BT IP Connect Global, an integrated platform now supports telephony, data, and multimedia worldwide for the Goethe-Institut. It’s also started on a path towards unified communications and collaboration with the deployment of BT One Microsoft Lync and BT One Voice SIP Trunking.

Any-to-any converged connectivity

Creating a global IP VPN eliminates expensive point-to-point circuits and ends the need for separate infrastructures for different traffic types, making the organisation many times more agile.

Class-of-service traffic prioritisation

Using the class-of-service functionality embedded in BT IP Connect Global means time-sensitive traffic like voice and critical business apps can be hustled ahead of more mundane data like email.

Taking best unified communications advice

With arguably more networking experience than any other service provider, a BT Advise Unified Communications Quick Start consultancy brings that expertise to bear for BT clients.

Seemingly complex functionality made easy

Unified communications features like instant messaging, presence, audio and video conferencing and terminal integration become child’s play with a managed BT One Microsoft Lync deployment.

Setting standards eases platform integration

BT One Voice SIP Trunking extends IP telephony into the heart of the enterprise to combine apps from best-of-breed technology suppliers while reducing cost and keeping things simple.
