Orange Business Services Builds ‘One-Stop Shop’ for SD-WAN

February 11, 2019 / Ali Longwell

Orange Business Services has been dipping its toes into SD-WAN since 2016. But as the service provider expands its offerings it is looking to create a “one-stop shop” for SD-WAN, according to John Isch, the director of the network and voice practice in North America for Orange Business.Orange currently offers its SD-WAN, which it calls Flexible SD-WAN, through both Cisco-Viptela technology and Riverbed’s SteelConnect technology. Orange integrates the SD-WAN with what it calls vendor managed internet (VMI) as well as an array of security components. In addition, the provider can resell managed internet services in around 120 countries.The VMI is part of Orange’s managed services offering, which enables it to also provide the automation and cost-saving associated with SD-WAN as well as direct access to cloud service providers. For security, it offers cloud-based, premises-based, or hosted security services that can be managed by Orange or the customer.
