Global engineering and infrastructure-advisory company Aurecon selected Orange Business Services to manage its global infrastructure.
The deal will include Orange Business Services managing Aurecon’s SD-WAN and cybersecurity services across 60 sites in more than 20 countries.
Orange will deploy its managed end-to-end Flexible SD-WAN service which it says will offer substantial cost savings, while providing a four-fold increase in agile network capacity to support worldwide collaboration, cloud-based CAD software and work-sharing at Aurecon.
The $25 million (€22.15 million), five-year network transformation deal aims to improve the performance of Aurecon's infrastructure and reduce complexity, strengthen applications’ performance and increase agility.
Orange’s cloud-based security services will also enable Aurecon and its partners to work securely from any location.
Orange started working with 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.
Kevin Griffen, Managing Director, Orange Business Services, Australasia, said, “Aurecon has a clear vision and ambitious strategy, and we are delighted to continue to support them as they undertake this new digital transformation programme.
“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.”
Carl Duckinson, CIO, Aurecon, added, “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 (such as the Macau Eiffel Tower, shown in the picture) 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.”
