Orange Egypt collaborates with Cisco to introduce SD-WAN Network Solutions in the Egyptian Market
Highlighting its leadership in the ICT sector, Orange Egypt, a leading provider of integrated telecommunications services, announced that it will provide a package of solutions that helps small, medium and large enterprises in digital transformation in collaboration with Cisco.
Orange Egypt is capitalizing on the success of Orange’s Flexible SD-WAN, the winner of the “Best Enterprise Service WCA 2018 award”, and its long-term collaboration with Cisco, which recently awarded Orange as “Cisco EMEAR Managed Enterprise Networking Service Provider of the year at Cisco Partner summit”, to launch its SD-WAN service in Egypt.
The launch of the new solutions enhance the portfolio of Orange Egypt in terms of business services and products including SD-WAN, which provides customers with a clear view of the wide networks of their business.
These solutions enable companies to improve data traffic and promote bandwidth efficiency effectively to meet business requirements and achieve a high level of balance between performance, simplicity of operations and cost reduction.
SD-WAN aims to help build an advanced data network that can better handle the continuous increase in the volume of data on the corporate network and deal with the ongoing changes in the future. The SD-WAN system manages various networks that integrate the existing technologies used to access the Internet such as MPLS and DSL technology while optimizing their connections to make use of the existing capacities at the lowest possible cost and maintain the optimal performance and security required for the critical core applications currently in use.
Orange Egypt SD-WAN solution provides a lightweight replacement for traditional WAN routers, allowing for load sharing of traffic across multiple WAN connections in an efficient and dynamic fashion, dramatically simplifying the complexity associated with management, configuration and orchestration of all WANs, and providing highly secure VPNs with the ability to integrate additional network services, and offload Internet destined traffic closer to the edge of the network.
“We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with Cisco through this collaboration, which comes with the growing need for new technologies such as cloud computing, mobile technology and IP video technology," Magdy Gabra, Chief Enterprise Line of Business Officer of Orange Egypt commented on this collaboration with Cisco. He also added that Orange Egypt provides full support to all its customers, ensuring them to keep pace with the technology and secure and rapid digital transformation of the SD-WAN technology to meet business and customer needs.
“Orange Egypt has been quick to recognize the potential of SD-WAN to resolve some of the critical networking challenges that enterprises face today,” said Laurent Degre, Senior Director of Global Service Provider, EMEAR, at Cisco.
Orange Egypt offers its customers multiple advantages and diverse unprecedented services to ensure their customers the full confidence and avoid potential risks during digital transformation processes. Orange Egypt also introduces the convenient pay-as-you-go payment methods to its customers, allowing them to take advantage of digital transformation services and SD-WAN service with minimum risks.
SD-WAN technology enables customers to take control of the utilization of their network digital resources by allowing on-demand provisioning of services, exactly covering the capacity needs, with no over or under provisioning. The customer is able to self-provision new services, which are automatically activated in a single minute. Orange Egypt provides the customer with a dedicated self-care portal, for managing the network, monitoring its performance and managing the users.
SD- WAN service allows customers to transfer data routed to the Internet through the lowest possible cost links for data transfer of enterprise applications to optimize the use of network resources while enabling unified network security policies by creating highly secured VPN routers across the network.
