BT improves Nordics ethernet capability through agreement with telia

BT today announced it has selected Telia Operator Business, the wholesale arm of TeliaSonera, as one if its providers to further strengthen its IP Connect and Ethernet Global access capabilities in the Nordic region.

BT IP Connect Global and Ethernet Global are part of the BT Connect portfolio of networking solutions, enabling global enterprises to cut costs and boost productivity by removing the need for multiple networks, bringing together voice, video, mobile and conferencing services onto a single platform – with Ethernet Global being one of the most cost efficient connectivity solutions on the market. 

The agreement with Telia Operator Business provides BT customers in the region with extended access and a broader range of options in resiliency and pricing.

Luca Zappia, CEO, BT Switzerland, the Nordics, CEE and Russia, said: “In today’s highly globalised markets, multinational customers rely on us to keep them connected in the most effective way, wherever they operate. Our agreement with Telia Operator Business provides our global customers with better access to the Nordics while improving the ability of our local customer base to reach out globally.”

Telia’s Ethernet Nordic platform is a standardised service and offers customers flexible transfer speeds from 2 megabits per second (Mbps)  to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps). With access points in over 10,000 locations, TeliaSonera’s high capacity network reaches a vast majority of the Nordic's end customers. One port to Ethernet Nordic opens up the door to all IP-based services and to other services types; voice, video, multimedia, internet and IPv6.

Göran Zetterdahl, Head of Telia Operator Business, said: “Today’s need for bandwidth is almost insatiable. We are proud that BT, one of the world's largest communications services providers, entrusts our Ethernet platform to support its local and international customer base. Ethernet Nordic is a data communications platform providing operators with extensive, in-depth network coverage throughout the Nordics and soon also the Baltics. We look forward to further develop our partnership with BT.”
