August 2007

BT today announced that Standard Chartered Bank, an international bank with operations in more than 50 countries worldwide, has signed a global network services contract with BT.

BT has been selected to supply international network services to Standard Chartered Bank in 16 countries, including UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, and Malaysia. A highly resilient MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network, in addition to existing infrastructure, was put in place to eliminate single points of failure and minimize risk globally. This strategy guarantees the quality and availability of critical services that are used for access to centralized banking applications and systems in Standard Chartered’s Global Data Centres and Shared Service Centres.

Andy Nicholson, managing director UK finance industry sector, said: “We are very pleased that Standard Chartered chose BT for our high performance, resilient dual-core MPLS network in Asia Pacific. We are committed to a partnership with Standard Chartered to transform their IT and network infrastructure. By providing robust, transformative world-class managed services, we aim to help Standard Chartered achieve success in their business vision.”
