Siemens AG picks Orange Business Services for Global SD-WAN

Siemens AG has awarded a six-year contract to Orange Business Services for a global “Siemens Digitalization Network” (SDN) connecting 1,500 sites in 94 countries.

Under the new six-year contract, which was valued at 240 million Euros, Orange Business Services will migrate Siemens’ entire global infrastructure to a dynamic and flexible SD-WAN network which will connect cloud applications as well as IoT devices.

We were also impressed by the flexibility and the service level Orange Business Services has been providing as a trusted partner to Siemens over the past several years.”
