Orange And Aurecon Join Forces In US$25-Million Network Transformation Deal That Will Service Key Markets In Africa

The Global engineering and infrastructure advisory firm Aurecon has chosen Orange Business Services to globally manage its communications infrastructure, including cybersecurity services and SD-WAN as part of a US$25-million five-year network transformation agreement.

According to Orange, the deal will impact 60 sites across approximately twenty countries, including significant markets in Africa such as Nigeria, Angola, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and South Africa.

The network-transformation deal is based on the provision of Orange's SD-WAN service, described as a fully functional end-to-end solution that will deliver a four-fold increase in agile network capacity.

The French multinational telco said that increased capacity is as critical for worldwide collaboration as it is for cloud-based CAD software and work-sharing.

Orange explained that the partnership would enable Aurecon and its partners to work efficiently from any location while continuing to secure its cloud-based business applications.

Orange has been supporting Aurecon since 2014, where it consolidated, redesigned and managed Aurecon's network infrastructure and installed a high-speed global WAN that connected sites across Africa, Asia, New Zealand, Australia and the Middle East.

The Managing Director of Orange Business Services in Australasia, Kevin Griffen said that Aurecon has an ambitious strategy and clear vision; and that Orange was delighted to continue to support Aurecon as they carry out this new digital transformation program.

Carl Duckinson, Aurecon’s CIO stated that Aurecon’s partnership with Orange would be critical for delivering its infrastructure overhaul. He added that as Aurecon’s trusted partner, Orange brought the business knowledge, coupled with technical solutions and innovative integration skills that made it the obvious choice when it came to choosing a partner to support Aurecon in this latest digital transformation journey that has strong delivery requirements.
