Thomson Reuters Selects BT for WAN Outsourcing

Thomson Reuters awarded an eight-year outsourcing contract to BT to manage the WAN element of its internal IT infrastructure.

Under the deal, BT will transform Thomson Reuters' existing WAN into a high-speed, IP based global infrastructure that will encompass 323 locations across 100 countries including six applications hosting data centers.

The win follows a 10 year plus deal BT reached with Reuters in 2005 to transform and manage the global network Thomson Reuters uses to deliver services to more than 330,000 financial market professionals across the world.

  • Thomson Reuters Corporation is the name of a media company that was created when The Thomson Corporation purchased Reuters in April 2008.
