BT and HPE Partner for New Global Managed LAN Service

Published On: July 16, 2023Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

BT has announced a partnership with HPE to offer customers a new managed service powered by HPE Aruba Networking, combining BT’s global reach and experience in the design, deployment and management of in-building wired and wireless connectivity with the latest HPE Aruba Networking LAN solutions.

As a first step, BT audits the LAN to identify what is already in place and what could be re-used and anything that should be replaced, leveraging HPE Aruba Networking technology.

BT then evaluates how to secure and protect connected devices, simplifying visibility through a single, cloud-based dashboard that centralizes reporting, analytics, security, scalability, and resilience in one platform. It can also identify redundant devices using unnecessary power and automate network and energy optimization.

“It’s clear that legacy in-building networks can’t handle modern hybrid working and IoT devices, never mind what comes next,” said Andrew Small, director of voice and digital work, Business at BT Group. “That’s why we’re expanding customer choice of managed LAN solutions by partnering with HPE Aruba Networking. This will offer the visibility, flexibility and security customers need to deliver productive, trusted wired and wireless connectivity.”

“Global customers that are building their connectivity strategies are focusing on modern enterprise networks that are secure, agile, responsive to business needs and simple to operate, while being powerful drivers of transformation,” said Phil Mottram, executive vice president and general manager of HPE Aruba Networking.
