Euronext enhances the reliability of its unified communications services

  • A reliable infrastructure that meets the needs of its trading divisions
  • A customizable, simple, secure cloud solution

In order to meet its trading divisions' communications needs and prepare for potential future changes, Euronext has selected Orange Business to support the transformation of its collaborative applications and help develop new workspaces.

Euronext is the primary exchange in the Euro zone with more than 1,300 issuers in Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris worth €2.8 trillion in market capitalization, an unmatched blue-chip franchise consisting of 25 issuers in the EURO STOXX 50® benchmark and a strong, diverse domestic and international client base. Telecommunications services are essential for the group's business because they play a key role in the security and operations of today's financial markets. As Europe's leading exchange, Euronext provides its members with a reliable, low-latency, high-performance platform.

With Business Together as a Service, Euronext has implemented a seamless voice-data service and a reliable, secure and upgradable unified communications and collaboration infrastructure across five European countries.

The intuitive Orange solution chosen by Euronext is integrated into workstations and allows employees to access everything they need to communicate from a single interface: presence management, phone lines, a unified inbox, instant messaging and remote conferencing services (audio, web and video conferencing). Employees can access all of their collaboration services from all of their terminals (computer, tablet, smartphone), at the office or on the move.

A 100% cloud-based service with end-to-end management in France and abroad

Business Together as a Service, which is hosted and managed in Orange's datacentres, is available via Orange's Business VPN solution. The VPN is based on a highly secured worldwide backbone network, which is exclusively dedicated to businesses.

The solution can be adjusted as headcount changes, with no additional investments in equipment or maintenance fees.

"Supporting our customers' digital transformation is our strategic priority. We are proud to bring Euronext more reliable and agile communications and collaboration services in Europe. Euronext employees will enjoy access to new, enhanced, secure 100% cloud-based connected resources to better meet the needs of their customers on the financial markets," says Diana Einterz, Head of Major Accounts Division, Orange Business.

"We were looking for a high-performance, flexible unified communications solution to support the changes in our business. The Orange Business teams' ability to roll out the entire solution across all of our European sites in a very short timeframe and their commitment to managing the solution from end to end were key factors in our decision," explains Simon Wagstaff,  Head of IT Infrastructure & Operations, Euronext.
