Orange Business Services has revealed it is transforming consulting and engineering company Pöyry’s communications infrastructure.

Orange’s enterprise arm said it had secured a five‑year contract that covers Pöyry’s 6,000 staff in 100 locations in over 30 countries.

The deal is based on the Orange Business VPN, a platform that supports voice, data, video and all business applications via the operator’s MPLS-based private network.

Finland-based Pöyry offers management consulting and engineering services to companies in the power generation, transmission & distribution, forest industry, chemicals & biorefining, mining & metals, transportation and water sectors.

“We are very pleased to count Pöyry in the list of industry leaders that Orange Business Services is serving globally in the oil, gas and mining sectors,” said Anne-Sophie Lotgering, Senior Vice President, Orange Business Services Europe, Russia & CIS.

“Pöyry has benefited significantly from our solutions offered on a global scale. As the company has expanded into new markets, our consistent service presence has provided the global strength, services and support needed for Pöyry to capitalise on new business opportunities.”

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

OBS saw revenues decline 1.3 percent to €1.5 billion in the first three months of the year.

The subsidiary has been told to increase the share that IT services adds to its revenues by 10 percentage points by 2020.

Earlier this month, it announced a deal with lift and escalator company KONE.
