Orange signs new network infrastructure deal with Aramco Services Company

Network provides ASC’s connected sites with global coordination and regional support

Orange Business Services has signed a new network infrastructure agreement with Aramco Services Company (ASC), the US-based subsidiary of the fully integrated energy and petrochemicals enterprise.

Orange will provide information technology network services to connect sites in different regions. The network offers global coordination and regional support that strengthens the communication platform for various applications. The agreement includes fully managed customer support based on the ITIL best-practice framework for operational excellence.

Orange’s presence in emerging markets has been growing exponentially, particularly in the Middle East. Orange recently expanded its local presence in Saudi Arabia to build out its local service capabilities following revenue growth from business engagements in the region.

“Orange is matching rapid economic development in emerging markets with the necessary network infrastructure to project that growth internationally,” says Diana Einterz, Senior Vice-President, Americas, Orange Business Services. “This engagement with US-based Aramco Services Company weaves regional operations in the larger tapestry of the worldwide business. We predict that demand for such capabilities from other businesses will only increase over the next several years.”
