Engineering company Aurecon has signed Orange Business Services to manage its global communications infrastructure.
The deal includes SD-WAN and cybersecurity services, across 60 sites in more than twenty countries.
Orange will provide an end-to-end ‘future-proof' SD WAN service, which will offer substantial cost savings and four-fold increase in agile network capacity. Aurecon requires the increased capacity to enable worldwide collaboration, cloud-based CAD software and work-sharing.
The $25m, five-year deal is intended to increase performance of Aurecon's infrastructure, as well as reduce complexity, strengthen application performance and improve agility. The network will offer more visibility and flexibility for growth.
The two companies have an existing relationship, which began when Orange 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.
"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.
"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.
