Orange Business Services standardises Riverbed as technology partner for managed service

Opex-based pricing model to give customers more choices

By CBR Staff Writer

Orange Business Services has standardised Riverbed Technology as a technology partner for its Enterprise Application Management service that delivers application acceleration and WAN optimisation with the option of a opex-based pricing model.

According to Orange Business Services, the managed service includes features such as, business-driven technology selection assessment that enables its consultants to analyse the customer application profile to determine the most effective offering. The offering is then implemented and managed by the company.

The Enterprise Application Management is based on a flexible service model, from equipment resale to a fully managed service based on customer preference; and the opex-based pricing model option for customers restricted by capex spending cuts.

Richard Heaps, head of product management at Orange Business Services, said: “Based on their business objectives and optimisation requirements, Enterprise Application Management customers can choose from technology partners BlueCoat, Juniper and Riverbed, a recognised leader in WAN optimisation and our partner since 2005 for custom-based solutions.
