Issues and challenges

The company’s ambition is to provide one global platform for guest Internet access and Siemens mobile users by consolidating numerous existing in-country specific solutions into one managed service. The aim is to reduce costs and simplify the handling of carrier management by working with a single global provider.

"As a globally operating company with subsidiaries and divisions all over the world, we need a reliable and flexible communications network that is a critical business enabler and can evolve with our growing business. We chose Orange Business Services because we see it as a prime partner with the ability to deliver a seamless worldwide solution for guest Internet coverage with the highest degree of scalability standards – especially to provide stable Internet access for 40,000 Siemens guests every month based on an attractive price-performance ratio.
"We were also impressed by the flexibility and service level Orange Business Services has been providing as a trusted partner to Siemens over the past several years."

Gülay Stelzmüllner, Head of IT Backend Infrastructure Services, Siemens AG
