Case study: BT Group

Building a simpler, better performing network with Cisco Meraki

Leading telecommunications company BT Group serves customers in more than 180 countries and is both a Cisco customer and a partner. When the company needed to simplify and unify remote network management for its Global Services division across 18 sites in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, it chose Cisco Meraki and Meraki MX security appliances to standardize, secure, and power performance across its Wi-Fi environment.

Summary

Challenges

  • Reduce network infrastructure complexity.
  • Reduce troubleshooting and redeploy resources to more important tasks.
  • Deploy centralized monitoring and management to standardize remote site configuration.

Solutions

Results

  • One local IT team now manages the distributed Wi-Fi environment instead of multiple teams, which frees up staffing resources.
  • Centralized dashboard simplifies network configuration and enables consistent security policies to be deployed across locations.
  • Built-in traffic-shaping tools improve bandwidth and offer better control, visibility, and license management.
  • Comprehensive security with Meraki MX Security Appliances.

What they're saying

"Meraki helps us adapt to new IT challenges as they arise and allows us to offer the latest innovations to our customers. We love the unified platform and centralized licensing. It makes everything much easier to manage."
