The article reports that British Telecommunications (BT) has launched its 21C Global Venture, which will offer next-generation networks (NGNs) to communication providers. The business unit was created to deliver its 21st Century Network, which includes the migration of 30 million customer lines to one dedicated Internet protocol network and the withdrawal of the legacy voice platform. However, Ovum's Mike Cansfield claims that the NGN program of BT is not the leading program in the world.
