Orange Business Services has teamed up with Aggreko, the world’s largest temporary power generation company, to provide managed IP VPN services.

The move comes as Aggreko begins plans to enter into emerging markets.

The managed IP VPN (Virtual Private Network) services will give Aggreko access to systems like Business Intelligence, Enterprise resource planning, video conferencing and telephony across 132 sites in 31 countries which include China, India, and South America.

Orange’s capability of reaching remote areas in the world is increasingly making the company the go to provider when branching out into emerging markets.

"When considering this renewal, we weighed the option of using several regional organizations and other worldwide solution providers to meet our strategic needs, versus retaining Orange Business Services as our worldwide provider and partner," said Stephen Henry, Director of Infrastructure and Operations, Aggreko.

"By nature of what we do, we operate and work in remote areas of the world with limited coverage, and Orange’s geographic reach and expertise in delivering a solution that fits our requirements in a timely manner were deciding factors," he added.

Orange currently has the world’s largest IP VPN which reaches 177 countries, including nine South American countries.

"Orange Business Services is a strategic partner for companies like Aggreko that are looking to strongly expand into emerging markets," said Helmut Reisinger, senior vice president, Orange Business Services Europe.

Our cloud-ready network can efficiently accommodate customers’ needs in emerging markets for expanding high-speed broadband services, video services, as well as enterprise-grade cloud solutions," Reisinger added.
