Case Study: Orange

Orange and Cisco enhance network security and resilience

Orange and Cisco partnered closely to ensure the security and resilience of Orange’s network by validating the trustworthiness of the Cisco products upon which it is built. The partnership is a shining example of how a collaborative approach that involves service providers, ICT vendors, and the input from critical infrastructure regulator can from the outset achieve fundamental security objectives.

Summary

Challenges

  • Needed to reduce the time to implement new equipment
  • Multiple vendors with differing equipment and infrastructure
  • Wanted to automate operations to significantly reduce human errors

Results

  • Adding new services and devices will mean only one change rather than custom code—reducing service time from months to hours
  • Open systems supports a multivendor network
  • Enhanced flexibility and reliability to serve customers

What they’re saying

"We chose NSO as a solution because it has already been implemented in many networks … We were able to discuss with other partners that have already implemented it. So we were very confident in our ability to use it."

Christian Gacon, VP Wireline Networks and Infrastructure, Orange
