Best-in-class solution for highly distributed sites

What is Deutsche Telekom's International Branch Connect?

​​International Branch Connect is a solution specifically developed by Deutsche Telekom to connect multinational retailers or public institutions. Our solution is the perfect fit for companies with highly distributed satellite sites.

It is based on Deutsche Telekom’s experience and expertise in WAN (Wide Area Network), LAN (Local Area Network), and optional WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) connectivity. At its heart is powerful xDSL technology with an optional mobile backup, with all the power of Deutsche Telekom’s managed services. This can significantly enhance your end-user experience, enabling you to focus on your core business.

Grow your network

At a time where businesses are becoming increasingly global, companies are having to scale up their branches across several geographies to cope. Multiple branches often mean multiple silos of connectivity, with a lack of consistency in the associated processes and standards used to implement this connectivity.

These inconsistencies can lead to regulatory challenges and issues within the supply chain, and this makes it difficult for a business to meet its customer demands. With our vast experience in the industry and in supporting our customers, we understand these challenges and can guide you through them.

Typical challengescompanies are facing


Branch structures often lead to complex networks of multiple providers that you rely on.


As branches tend to develop their own local solutions, there is virtually no standardization in place.


The level of data security varies depending on the location and the solution used.


Customer, user, and brand experience are inconsistent as different service providers are in charge and channels are not synchronized.
