BT Global Services has won network and connectivity deals with Alstom Transport and financial firm Caixa.

Alstom Transport has selected BT to consolidate and optimise its global network infrastructure.

The deal, which covers more than 300 locations across 59 countries, sees the UK-based operator provide end-to-end network services, including wide and local area networks, internet access, integration and maintenance services.

Alstom Transport’s network will be managed and supported via BT’s Network Operating Centre in Paris.

The deal also includes Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, which BT said would enable direct access to Microsoft applications via a direct connection with the Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite in the cloud.

Christine Heckmann, CIO of Alstom Transport, said: “At Alstom Transport, we have great ambitions for developing our business internationally and we know that our ICT infrastructure is a key element for our future success.

“We need to innovate and implement high performance services for our customers, employees and partners and have now found a global partner with the vision, capabilities and creativity required to deliver that.”

BT also announced a five-year deal with Caixa Econômica Federal to connect its data centres to its lottery outlets across Brazil.

The deal additionally includes the provision of satellite connectivity to Caixa’s lottery outlets in remote locations, where they offer basic banking services to the local population, including social security benefit payments.

BT has been providing connectivity services to Caixa for eight years.

Bas Burger, President BT Americas said: “Our Latin American satellite capability places BT in a leading position to support reliable nationwide networks for our clients.

“We are proud to continue helping Caixa grow its business and contribute to the development of the poorest areas in Brazil, since Caixa lottery revenues play an important role in financing social projects, as well as education and healthcare programmes.”
