In the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Managed Security Services, published in 2014, BT had been named a Major Player. The report notes that BT's differentiation comes through its ability to be a one-stop shop for its customers thanks to its capacity to seamlessly integrate a broad security portfolio of managed services with a customer's BT-provided WAN, LAN and compute solutions.
The agile, programmable telecoms networks of the future moved a step closer today as BT and Dell EMC announced a research collaboration dedicated to validating a new way of managing network traffic. The proof-of-concept, which is taking place at the BT Labs in Adastral Park, Suffolk, will explore how disaggregated switching can create flexible networks which are more responsive to customer needs by using standard open network switches commonly found in data centers, coupled with specialist switching software. In contrast to the traditional integrated network switches currently used by operators and enterprises around the world, disaggregated switching uses merchant silicon based switching systems combined with either commercially available or open source system software.
Roland Head explains why he's turned bullish on BT Group plc (LON:BT.A).
