BT’s Mobile Cloud Core Project

DWF provided legal support to BT on its Mobile Cloud Core project.

The project saw the finalisation of an agreement with Ericsson for the deployment of its dual-mode 5G core on the BT Network Cloud.

The Mobile Cloud Core project is central to BT’s move to a single converged IP network. This technology will power both its 4G and 5G networks, enabling the deployment of enhanced communication services and allowing BT to take advantage of innovations within the industry.

The DWF team, led by Partners Ben McLeod (Picture) and Ruby Khan with support from Solicitor, Matthew Suter, assisted BT on the Project contracts, negotiations and provided day-to-day legal support. DWF was able to harmonize with the BT Legal team and act as a true extension of the in-house function to provide seamless support on a complex and time critical transaction.
