The BBC will become the first beta site testing the technology, which is due for full commercial release by the end of this year. Siemens is the main systems integrator for the BBC.
The roll out will begin with the installation of a secure extranet to provide instant messaging, videoconferencing and integrated telephony.
A bundle of additional services will be made available at a later date for BBC regional sites to commission as required.
Vikas Agrawal, head of strategy and innovation at Siemens Business Services, UK and Ireland, said: "This will transform the way that media companies communicate and share resources."
The service will allow BBC employees to link to applications such as newsfeeds, cost of programming, human resources information and other internal sources.
