BT today announced its new deal with the European Commission to offer voice services across 21 institutions.
European Commission, the European Council and the European Defense Agency are part of the deal that will have duration of seven years and worth over €15 million.
This is the second European Commission framework contract awarded to BT in 2015. Last March, BT signed another contract with the European Commission, estimated at €55.7 million over 5 years to deliver internet access to all major European institutions in 28 member states.
BT will provide fixed line voice services at sites in Belgium, Luxembourg and Strasbourg using the BT One Voice portfolio. The new solution is based on BT One Voice SIP that allows users to consolidate communications infrastructure to prepare for Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) tools such as instant messaging (IM), presence and video.
“By modernizing the technology, we enable the EU to manage its communications infrastructure much more effectively, combine voice with other media streams and achieve cost-savings,” said Corrado Sciolla, president Europe and Global Telecom Markets, BT Global Services.
BT Group’s reported revenue was £17,979 million and profit before tax of £2,645 million for the year ended 31 March 2015.
