BT expands its Dynamic Network Services with Dell Technologies

Dell EMC Virtual Edge Platform will help BT’s global customers deploy network services and applications quickly, easily and cost-effectively.

Dell Technologies has been selected to offer its portfolio of customer-location IT solutions to BT. This allows the global communications services provider to offer a broad range of new managed services to help its multinational enterprise customers deploy applications and services in an agile and flexible way.

BT will offer the Dell EMC Virtual Edge Platform (VEP), a family of networking-specific universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE), as a converged networking, IoT and IT application platform. With the Dell EMC VEP, BT can help customers automate, simplify and accelerate the flow of data for their critical on-premises workloads.

As an uCPE edge device available in different form factors and performance levels, the Dell EMC VEP helps service providers offer both consolidation of hardware and choice of applications at distributed customer locations. It reduces the need for dedicated appliances or servers at every location, offering a common platform to host services such as SD-WAN, security functions, IoT gateways and distributed applications, making the deployment of key applications quicker and easier.

By combining the Dell Technologies industry-leading on-premises platforms with BT’s networking and security expertise, BT customers can benefit from a robust and secure end-to-end digital infrastructure. This will enable integration of WAN, W-LAN, SD-WAN, and Cloud under a single operational and security framework, greatly simplifying deployment and management of IT infrastructure while allowing customers to maintain control and agility.

In addition, BT will support extended Edge use cases through Dell Technologies industry-leading server, storage and hyperconverged infrastructure.

BT is already working with several customers to onboard their business-critical applications on to the new platform.

Many enterprises are investing in hybrid compute and distributed IoT models to ensure performance, security and availability of their digital infrastructure. Using software-defined architectures, virtualization, open standards and APIs, they can respond to new market opportunities more quickly and efficiently while hardening their critical data and applications against disaster, disruption and digital threats.
