Orange Business Wins EUR 100 Million Deal with Total for Global VPN

Orange Business Services and Total have signed a 5-year global networking contract with a value of up to EUR 100 million. Under the deal, Orange Business Services is responsible for the integration, operation and optimization of WAN networks for Total at more than 1,000 sites in 100-plus countries.

Total, which is based in Paris and ranks as one of the largest oil and chemical companies in the world,
has set forth an IT VISION program that calls for all of its employees to use the same collaborative tools and with a uniform level of service wherever they are in the world.

Orange Business Services will be responsible for integrating and managing all of Total's networks whether provided by Orange or by third party operators. The goal is to deliver reliable, homogeneous and financially viable WAN services for every local Total entity. As the "integrator of operators", Orange Business Services will guarantee the continuity and quality of service for all of Total's WAN networks -- including supervision, operational and contractual management of third party suppliers, project management -- along with WAN optimization solutions.
