BT inks global network services deal with NATO

Migrates NATO’s existing backbone to BT Ethernet Connect

By CBR Staff Writer

BT has entered into a contract with NATO’s Consultation, Command and Control Agency (NC3A) to deliver a communications network, connecting more than 70 locations, spread across the NATO nations and the Balkans.

The €47m five-year agreement includes the migration of NATO’s existing backbone to BT Ethernet Connect, a network designed for large organisations that need control over their IP architecture.

BP will also offer NATO with Ethernet Connect E-LINE services, which provides protected bandwidth for mission-critical applications between sites.

Ethernet Connect will provide secured wide area network (WAN) for NATO’s missions and decision-makers around the world.

BT Ethernet Connect is part of BT Connect, which leverages BT’s global network, including Ethernet VPN services in 28 countries, growing to over 33 in 2012.
