British Telecom (BT) Canada Inc., today activated a new multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) node in Toronto.

The company also announced a newly upgraded end-to-end private line, single contract service between Canada and some 20 countries worldwide, which it says will simplify the provision and management of trans-border services for global enterprises.

The new capabilities strengthen BT’s proposition in North America and illustrate the company’s commitment to serve the needs of its multinational corporate customers with operations in Canada, the company said.

The Toronto node, built in response to customer demand, is part of the first phase of BT’s plan to extend its IP infrastructure in the Americas, announced last year

“Canada is an integral part of BT’s strategy in North America," said Chuck Pol, President and COO, BT Americas. "Multinational enterprises want to provide all their business sites worldwide with seamless, reliable access to distributed information from any country — while at the office or on the move."

British Telecommunications plc has conducted business in the Americas through its subsidiaries, including BT Americas Inc., since 1988.
