Aurecon picks Orange to manage its communications infrastructure in Africa, Asia and Middle East
Global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon has selected Orange Business Services, a global technology integrator, to manage its global communications infrastructure, including SD-WAN and cybersecurity services, across 60 sites in more than twenty countries among them Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria and South Africa.
The future-proof Flexible SD-WAN service by Orange is a fully managed end-to-end solution which will offer substantial cost savings, while providing a four-fold increase in agile network capacity. This increased capacity is critical for worldwide collaboration, cloud-based CAD software and work-sharing.
The $25 million, five-year network transformation deal will not only increase the performance of Aurecon’s infrastructure, but also reduce complexity, strengthen application performance and improve agility.
It will offer more visibility and flexibility to grow and evolve across its business operations. The scalable, cloud-based security services from Orange will enable Aurecon and its partners to work securely from any location, while securing its cloud-based business applications.
Orange started supporting Aurecon in 2014, where it redesigned, consolidated and managed Aurecon’s network infrastructure and deployed a high-speed global WAN, connecting sites across Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Middle East.
“Aurecon has a clear vision and ambitious strategy, and we are delighted to continue to support them as they undertake this new digital transformation program. With our end-to-end global solutions and carrier-grade integration expertise, supported by our consulting and co-innovation capabilities, we believe we are well placed to be their trusted technology partner,” said Kevin Griffen, Managing Director, Orange Business Services, Australasia.
“Our partnership with Orange is critical for delivering our infrastructure overhaul. As a global company involved in co-creating some of the world’s most iconic construction projects with many other partners, it’s essential we have a reliable and flexible technology platform that not only can evolve with our growing business, but also improve our agility and performance. As our trusted partner, Orange brings the knowledge of our business, coupled with the technical solutions and integration skills that make it the obvious choice to support us on this latest digital transformation journey with strong delivery requirements,” said, Carl Duckinson, Aurecon CIO.
