Brewing giant chooses BT for global comms

Global brewer InBev has awarded BT Global Services a £122m, seven-year contract to manage its worldwide communications infrastructure.

The brewer of Stella Artois, Beck's, Leffe, Hoegaarden and Staropramen beers is paying BT to manage its existing data and voice networks and to gradually migrate the firm to BT's IP-based communications platform, where it can take advantage of technologies such as voice over IP.

BT will support local area networks at 640 InBev sites across the world, providing access to 24,000 users. It will also connect the brewer's four datacentres.

BT will manage InBev's complete voice infrastructure and provide audio and video conferencing services. 

Helpdesk services will also be supplied and BT will partner with IBM to provide end-to-end service management.
