We're able to provide pricing for existing and new BT clients considering BT for ExpressRoute access.
If you are with BT today, Network Union is able to add ExpressRoute to your existing service.
Simply put, ExpressRoute allows an Enterprise to extend your own business network into the Microsoft cloud over dedicated BT private or public connectivity. Connections range from layer 3 MPLS through to private Ethernet services. With ExpressRoute, the core benefit surrounds access to cloud based services over private QoS (Quality of Service) enabled secure circuits. The result is predictable traffic performance vs. Public IP Internet access.
ExpressRoute. An example topology.
Various billing models exist as per the list below.
Unlimited data. The simplest billing model to understand, a fixed monthly fee for unlimited bandwidth.
Metered data. The circuit cost remains constant though data is charged for outbound traffic per GB of traffic.
ExpressRoute premium add-on - as mentioned earlier, ExpressRoute premium provides the capability to Azure public and Azure private peering from the standard 4000 routes to 10000 routes.Global ExpressRoute circuits built in any region (not including national clouds) will have access to resources across any region globally. For example, a virtual network provisioned in Europe will be available from a companies USA site.

Additional VNet links per ExpressRoute circuit from 10 to an upper limit (bandwidth is taken into account).
Security and Privacy - The Azure Virtual network is private when connected via MPLS resulting in a highly secure virtual environment with support for private IP addressing, Quality of Service and other traffic control configuration.
Gateways - ExpressRoute is available for
Scale your network - Customers connecting to Azure via ExpressRoute are able to extend their network across geographical regions seamlessly via a single network.
Network topology - ExpressRoute opens up the Azure product range including WAN acceleration, load balancing, firewall security and more.
Access via the Internet and MPLS - All Azure virtual devices are accessible from private MPLS or Global Internet connectivity. When using
Hybrid topology - Where required, Azure may also integrate into existing premise equipment, e.g. an onsite SQL server.
Extend the data centre - ExpressRoute is the enabler to extending data centre connectivity; emulate the economic RoI of public cloud while maintaining privacy, security and predictable performance.
SLA - ExperessRoute offers a 99.95% dedicated uptime guarantee with a credit toward your monthly service where applicable under SLA uptime guidelines.
Overall, creating Azure applications over the cloud forms a component of your overall network architecture end to end. When moving from conceptual application roll out project plans to a live environment, the process becomes easier when directly connected.
In addition to the security provided by MPLS, Microsoft
Resiliency and Diversity - While there is no requirement to run any form of diversity, we are able to work on creating a design with no single point of failure. Service provider to Microsoft edge routers (MSSE) are diverse and are provisioned using dual circuit connectivity.
QoS (Quality of Service) - We carefully consider your traffic profile to determine requirements for traffic prioritisation.
