Orange Business Services has unveiled a new VPN internet service that aims to offer faster connectivity to enterprises.

The France-based operator said its new Business VPN Internet Accelerate solution could provide access to cloud applications such as such as CRM, ERP and Business Intelligence, up to ten times faster.

The “business-grade” internet service is based on Akamai’s Cloud Networking platform.

OBS, which is trialling the new solution with “a number of enterprises” currently, said it plans to launch it commercially early next year.

Pierre-Louis Biaggi, VP of Connectivity Solutions at OBS said: “Getting networks fit for a cloud future with ‘business grade’ connectivity is a vital first step that enterprises need to take to meet their digital business transformation goals.

“Business VPN Internet Accelerate complements our Business VPN offering and allows enterprises to embrace global hybrid networks and the Internet, while maximising reliability, performance and security.”

Earlier this week, OBS unveiled a new Service Management Suite to help companies better manage their infrastructure.

Willie M Tejada, Senior VP and GM of Cloud Networking at Akamai, commented: “Akamai and Orange have a long-running joint innovation board, and it is exciting to have Orange select Akamai Cloud Networking to power Business VPN Internet Accelerate.

“We’ve leveraged Akamai’s proven web acceleration technology and the Orange track record of supporting enterprises’ digital transformation programs with the right mix of connectivity and security solutions, cloud applications, and M2M/mobile platforms.

“This combination will ensure enterprises get the fast, reliable and secure cloud services they need to drive profitable growth.”
