Orange Business Services ias picked up a major contract with Siemens AG for a global ‘Siemens Digitalization Network’ built on an SD-WAN infrastructure – which will connect 1,500 sites in 94 countries on 5 continents, including Australia.
The deal will see the firms extending an existing agreement, adding a new six-year deal worth €240 million. Orange Business Services will migrate Siemens’ entire global infrastructure to a dynamic and flexible SD-WAN network which will connect cloud applications as well as IoT devices. Consolidating network design and maintenance with one single provider will further reduce complexity and strengthen application performance and agility.
Orange Business Services Australia MD Kevin Griffen said classed the new deal as a huge win for his firm. "As with many organisations, demands on the Siemens WAN have increased with virtual teams and teleworkers collaborating on global projects, and this new network will provide a robust, seamless global network service which will enable them to transform their business," he said.
