Orange Business Services installs converged network for Siemens

Orange Business Services has migrated a major part of the electronics and electrical engineering firm Siemens’ WAN to a modern, converged Orange network in just 11 months. The new converged network enables better support for modern business processes and future demands.
 
In the context of the contract, Orange established a joint project team and adapted processes to allow a very fast and smooth migration. The project was implemented in adherence to all specifications.
 
“We were looking for a reliable provider for our business-critical communications infrastructure that can master international projects and assume a pioneering role in terms of technology, just like we do.” said Norbert Kleinjohann, CIO of Siemens AG.
 
The complexity of the WAN was simplified, thanks to standardizing the technologies and solutions involved. A carefully thought-out network design and single-provider coverage of several sites reduced ongoing operating and management costs. The Orange Business VPN solution for Siemens complies with strict security, compliance and quality of service standards. It is more flexible and agile than the previous multi-vendor network and offers DSL and Ethernet technology, depending on each site’s particular requirement. Orange Business Services offers a dedicated single point of contact service desk coupled with Orange’s presence in 166 countries to ensure optimum management.
 
“The tough demands on the WAN migration project on a global scale were a perfect match to Orange Business Services’ capabilities,” said Dr. Helmut Reisinger, senior vice president for Europe at Orange Business Services. “The combination of an innovative solution approach, highly focused and professional global and local project teams on both sides and the joint drive with Siemens for the utmost standardization have created a perfect momentum to deliver this solution. We are very proud of what we could jointly deliver with our customer.”
