Thomson Reuters signs BT wide area network (WAN) deal

Antony Savvas

Thomson Reuters has extended a contract with BT to manage its wide area network in an eight-year outsourcing deal.

BT will transform Thomson Reuters' existing wide area network (WAN) into a high-speed, internet protocol (IP)-based global infrastructure. It will encompass 323 locations across 100 countries, including six data centres hosting applications.

The deal follows a ten-year-plus contract Thomson Reuters signed with BT in 2005, to transform and manage the network it uses to deliver services to more than 330,000 finance professionals across the world.

Peter Moss, managing director of content, technology and operations at Thomson Reuters, said, "We needed to support our people with a world-class, efficient and well-managed internal network. Having worked with BT for a number of years now, we are confident they can execute against our requirements."

The value of the WAN deal has not been disclosed.
