ABB Chooses BT for Global Communications

The ABB Group, which has over 140,000 employees in over 100 countries, has selected BT to transform its global communications infrastructure across Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. ABB, a world leader in power and automation, will also benefit from improved application performance and additional IT security delivered by BT.

Specifically, BT was selected to connect more than 700 ABB locations in more than 100 countries with its Internet Connect and IP Connect services, allowing ABB employees to work more securely, with a standardised experience for all users. The global network infrastructure designed by BT will connect users to data and applications stored in ABB’s hybrid cloud and will be the foundation for ABB’s future use of cloud services from a variety of suppliers. This includes the management of 400 firewalls and the provision of BT Assure cyber protection and analytics services to protect ABB’s network and IT systems against threats.

“The alignment with BT will enable us to move to a globally consistent, high quality network”, said Andy Tidd, Chief Information Officer at ABB. “This key component of our new IT infrastructure will support ABB’s three focus areas of profitable growth, relentless execution and business-led collaboration.”
