Orange Business Services launches Network Boost

Orange Business Services is launching Network Boost, a network-based application performance management solution, fully integrated with the Orange IP VPN. Network Boost prioritizes, accelerates and optimizes customers' applications and guarantees uptime through stringent network-based application service level agreements and proactive performance monitoring.

Orange is partnering with Ipanema Technologies, which develops solutions for application traffic management.

Orange said its Network Boost would give businesses a clear understanding of how their networks are used -- by application, site and user group. Orange proposes multiple options depending on customer need, including:

  • acceleration that compresses data and minimizes network delays,

  • application monitoring that anticipates network performance degradation, and

  • self management that allows customers to change their own application service quality.

The service is available in 220 countries and territories.
