Orange’s enterprise arm has won a five-year contract to upgrade numerous legacy networks belonging to seafood producer Norwegian Marine Harvest.

The $12 million (€10.5 million) deal sees Orange Business Services replace multiple vendors to become the company’s sole provider of a range of services on a single platform.

The managed WAN solution that OBS has proposed includes wireless connectivity and a cloud-based hosted video environment.

NMH, which produces 20 percent of farmed salmon worldwide, has 11,700 employees in 24 countries.

The company’s Global WAN manager, Merethe Johansen, said: “Fish breeding might appear on the surface to be fairly low tech, but to become a world leader, it demands ongoing data monitoring at each stage of the seafood value chain, as well as efficient production flows.

“Our competitive edge will be strengthened with Orange as our trusted partner who will deliver the strong and secure platform we need to drive our international growth.”

OBS saw revenues fall 1.9 percent to €3.2 billion in the first six months of the year.

The decrease was limited to -0.5 percent in the second quarter versus -3.4 percent in the first three months of the year thanks to growth in IT and integration services.

As part of a new five-year strategic plan announced earlier this year, the business unit has been tasked with increasing the share that IT services adds to its revenues by 10 percentage points by 2020.
