Broadcom is using the Orange global network to drive digital transformation

Share

Issues and challenges

Broadcom is a leading semiconductor device supplier to the wired, wireless, enterprise storage and industrial markets. The company has over 15,000 employees operating from 80 countries worldwide. It uses mergers and acquisitions to increase access and growth in new markets and has a philosophy of driving down costs in order to be competitive in a market with thin margins.

The flexibility and agility the business had in its early years is still seen as the best operating mode. Hence, every aspect of technology is reviewed from the perspective of whether it can support employees, accelerate go-to-market activity and cut costs.

"Over the past 10 years, Orange has been a great partner every time we look to cut costs through innovative solutions or re-designing the network structure. Orange plays a large role for us and is a strategic partner."

Andy Nallappan, Chief Information Officer, Broadcom
