BT Secures Telecom Contract with NATO

NATO’s Consultation, Command and Control Agency (NC3A), which is responsible for delivering technology in support of NATO’s global operations, has awarded a contract to BT covering more than 70 locations, spread across the NATO nations and the Balkans. The five-year agreement is valued at €47 million.

The contract provides for the migration of NATO’s existing backbone to BT Ethernet Connect. Ethernet Connect is an intelligent network designed for large organisations that require exclusive control over their IP architecture. NATO will also benefit from Ethernet Connect E-LINE services, which provides protected bandwidth for mission-critical applications between sites.
