BT and T-Systems this week announced a partnership agreement that will enable T-Systems to offer to their customers the option of using a range of network services from BT to connect their operations all around the world. As part of the Deutsche Telekom group, T-Systems manages the ICT of multinational groups and public institutions.

This new agreement comes just over a month after both partners announced that BT customers would be able to connect to T-Systems' data centres to access SAP cloud services.

The new partnership means that, in the future, T-Systems and BT will be able to interconnect their networks to meet the requirements of individual customers. This will allow T-Systems to increase its international reach by more than 60 percent, enabling the company to offer seamless connectivity to its international customers for specific global network services such as MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching).

Luis Alvarez, Global Services CEO, BT
In addition to our existing multinational customers, this agreement will allow us to serve an extended customer base via T-Systems. This agreement will help maximise the utilisation of our existing assets and sustainably increase our own competitiveness, bringing long term benefits to BT customers as well.

Reinhard Clemens, CEO, T-Systems 
By interconnecting with BT's network, we offer our customers substantial increase in global reach. The partnership with BT is an excellent example of how T-Systems plans to work with strong partners to further drive our international business forward.
