BT Global Services has been recognised for Network Services in Asia Pacific and has received highest scores in two out of four use cases in a new report by Gartner.

Gartner's Critical Capabilities Report for Network Services in Asia Pacific evaluates 14 providers against four critical capabilities with four different use cases measurements.

These measurements include regional network, extended domestic network, low-latency network and high-capacity network. BT has achieved the highest scores for regional network and extended domestic network.

"I believe our scores in the report show BT's clear market leadership in Asia Pacific.• We feel this can be accredited to our highly reliable network with excellent regional coverage, high-quality service and a comprehensive portfolio of solutions tailored for the needs of different industries," said Kevin Taylor, president, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (AMEA), BT Global Services.

"As we celebrate our 30th anniversary in Asia, I'm delighted that our continued investment in the region and our global networked IT capabilities are being recognised in this latest report," he added.

Gartner notes growing demand for high-capacity services for content distribution to Asia/Pacific's very large consumer market. Low-latency services are also in demand for financial trading and the banking sector.

"MNCs that have large operations in big emerging markets, such as China and India, want international providers to extend their coverage into these markets, either through MPLS interconnections or Internet VPNs, as well as provide managed customer premises equipment (CPE) services," says Gartner.

Gartner recommends that network architects in MNCs should select a provider that offers superior connectivity in big emerging markets. Providers should also exhibit a track record for good service and should have the ability to support large and highly distributed networks.
