BT selects Juniper Networks to underpin 5G capability with cloud network rollout

By

British Telecommunications has selected Juniper Networks to deliver its network cloud infrastructure which the telco says will pave the way for its network rollout across the UK and globally.

BT says the Juniper technology will allow it to have access to a more flexible, virtualised network infrastructure that can deliver the technology requirements of various lines of business from a single platform and create “new and exciting converged services bringing mobile, Wi-Fi, and fixed network services together".

According to BT, the project will enable it to implement a range of new applications and workloads and evolve the majority of its current ones, including:

  • Converged fixed and mobile services rollout to consumers and businesses.
  • Faster time-to-market for network services ranging from internet access delivery to TV and business network functions.
  • Improved voice and video delivery and scalability.

“BT is a global leader in ultrafast services, with growing demand from our ultra-fast broadband services and ultrafast 5G services and has the perfect opportunity to combine several discrete networks into a unified, automated infrastructure,” Neil McRae, chief architect, BT, said.

“This move to a single cloud-driven network infrastructure will enable BT to offer a wider range of services, faster and more efficiently to customers in the UK and around the world. We chose Juniper to be our trusted partner to underpin this Network Cloud infrastructure based on the ability to deliver a proven solution immediately, so we can hit the ground running.

“Being able to integrate seamlessly with other partners and solutions and aligning with our roadmap to an automated and programmable network is also important.”

“As a renowned global service provider, BT is a shining example of how to evolve networks to become more agile. By leveraging the ‘beach-front property’ it has in central offices around the globe, BT can optimise the business value that 5G’s bandwidth and connectivity brings,” said Bikash Koley, chief technology officer, Juniper Networks.

“The move to an integrated telco cloud platform brings always-on reliability, along with enhanced automation capabilities, to help improve business continuity and increase time-to-market while doing so in a cost-effective manner.”
