Jorg Leenaards, CIO for the Belgian Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs, discusses the organization's experience with Orange Business Services as their telecommunications and IT service provider. The agency required a partner that had a truly global presence and able to provide an absolutely secure, highly available and adaptable IP VPN solution to over 100 countries, using satellite and terrestrial connections. The provider also needed to comply with Belgian government, NATO and EU requirements.
Close project management was critical to ensure the project was implemented within 6 months of contract signature, especially after the organization reversed the priority of satellite and terrestrial implementations. Mr. Leenaards includes a few of the challenges faced during installation in countries such as Afghanistan, Cuba, Rwanda and Saudi Arabia.
