BT has launched Bandwidth on demand as a new feature on BT IP Connect Global, its  wide area networking (WAN) service. The new service gives organisations the flexibility to right-size their network in real time, improving control of their overall networking costs. The launch comes after successful live trials with a leading global petrochemical company.

Rather than over provision their network to meet peak needs, customers can now use the new service to right-size networks in line with rapidly changing business requirements. They can then use Bandwidth on demand to increase bandwidth in real time when needed, for the period they require. This gives them greater operational flexibility as well as tighter cost control.

Keith Langridge, vice president of network services at BT, said: “Bandwidth on demand is a great example of how we’re giving our global customers more agility and control in the areas where they need it most, helping them become digital businesses. The new feature is part of our Dynamic Network Services programme, which harnesses the latest SDN  and NFV  technologies to deliver more flexible and efficient network solutions. Through this programme we are bringing to life yet another great new global capability to help our customers meet their connectivity needs.”

The new feature is managed via BT’s online self-service portal. Bandwidth flexes can be done immediately or scheduled up to one year in advance.
