Orange Business Services has launched a new enterprise VPN service to cater for growing demand for internet and cloud services.
The France-based operator said its Business VPN Internet solution provides secure, enterprise-grade internet by eliminating congestion risks on the IP VPN, reducing internet access latency and prioritising business-critical traffic.
It said it had invested in 15 global Internet gateways on five continents to make this possible.
Each gateway provides virtual firewall protection based on the customer’s security policy and geolocalisation as standard, so that users in each country are able to access local internet services.
A new internet Class of Service (CoS) enables accurate application prioritisation, while hybrid internet/WAN ports offer bandwidth cost savings of up to 30 percent.
The new offering is part of what the operator is calling its Hybrid Network strategy, which is designed to help enterprises cope with the predicted trebling of global IP traffic between 2014 and 2018.
OBS claimed there is “growing demand” from multinational corporations for high-performance, secure access to internet-based cloud and web services.
It said engineering professional services company Aurecon had already signed up to use the service.
Pierre-Louis Biaggi, Head of the Network Solutions at OBS, commented: “By seamlessly integrating secure Internet and cloud services into our core network, we are able to support new ways of working and deliver the best possible end-user experience.
“Ultimately, Hybrid Networks, as we conceive them at Orange Business Services, help drive the move toward digital transformation by supporting the new generation of Internet-based services.”
