The partnership will bring the benefits of BT's world-class conferencing solutions to a larger number of Chinese companies.

BT, one of the world's leading providers of communications services and solutions, announced today a five-year contract with GNET, China's largest independent domestic provider of conferencing services, to provide BT's audio conferencing solutions in China. 

Audio conferencing services are a key collaboration tool for any international company looking to expand faster. By partnering with a global leader such as BT, GNET will be able to address increasing demand to support Chinese multinational companies (MNCs) in their global expansion and support BT's global customers who are developing their presence in China. Through this partnership, GNET will provide their customers with BT's best-in-class audio conferencing portfolio, including BT MeetMe which harnesses PSTN (Traditional fixed telephony) and IP access (Voice using the internet or private data networks) to provide a very cost effective service. 

Kevin Taylor, President of BT Asia, Middle East and Africa said: "Today's announcement marks a further step in the availability of our audio conferencing solutions in the Chinese market. This is the first time we have built such a partnership, which will increase the availability of high-end conferencing services to some of the most dynamic Chinese companies. Together we will provide them with the best possible customer experience." 

Gavin Chen, CEO of GNET said, "China is becoming the world's second largest audio conferencing market after the United States. Both Chinese MNC's and international MNC's operating in China have increasing need for conferencing services. With BT's world-class audio conferencing solutions, local support team and global experience, the company would be the ideal strategic partner for us to grow the conferencing business. We hope to extend this partnership to additional services such as video conferencing in the future."
