The UK's BT has extended its relationship with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) military alliance, announcing a contract to support the alliance's global operations.
Under the three year contract with NATO's Communications and Information Agency (NCI), valued at €5.9 million ($6.64 million), BT will provide support services to more than 70 NATO locations internationally.
This will include sites spread across the Alliance’s 29 member countries, as well as other locations.
“Digital transformation is a strategic driver for multinational organisations. Like many of our global customers, NATO faces a dynamic operational landscape and looks to harness the latest digital tools and technologies to enhance its performance,” BT CEO of Global Services Bas Burger said.
“With our global secure network and expertise as a trusted supplier to governments, international agencies and multinationals, BT is well placed to support NATO in an increasingly digital world.”
The NATO alliance consists of 29 member states from North America and Europe.
