"In the past 12 months, Gartner has seen accelerated change in enterprise requirements and buying criteria for global networks. Enterprises are increasingly focusing on agility, their adoption of cloud services and greater use of the internet as primary WAN transport."* Orange has anticipated these trends by evolving our hybrid WAN solutions to offer a new SD-WAN by Orange portfolio of services. Over the past year we have launched SD-WAN services with best-of-breed partners, such as Cisco/Viptela and Riverbed in appliances mode, but also network function virtualization based on Viptela technology, and features like zero-touch provisioning.

"At Orange Business Services, we keep deploying our strategy towards the promise of intent-based networking, which will automatically orchestrate networks based on predicted user demand and then improve security, user satisfaction and business continuity. Thanks to a best-of-breed range of SD-WAN technological bricks and an improved SD-WAN Customer Maturity Model, the SD-WAN by Orange portfolio of services makes our customers ready to meet their ever increasing cloud, bandwidth, Internet and routing optimization demands effectively and securely, while improving application performance irrespective of whether it is delivered from the cloud or the enterprise data center,"

Pierre-Louis Biaggi, vice president, Connectivity Business Unit at Orange Business Services.

We are confident that Gartner has acknowledged the strength of our Orange international network, where we have the broadest network coverage in terms of countries connected. We’re a recognized leader in the connectivity field, where we continue to invest to become a major player in the Orchestration world, including SDN, universal CPE, VNFs and SD-WAN.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Gartner for 18 years running. We have built a pedigree of network services that has remained current to enterprise needs through the years. Clients can depend on us to see them through to the next horizon of Intent-Based Networking.”
