Orange Business Services has launched Easy Go Network, a portfolio of fully-virtualized network functions (VNF) using SDN technology. 

Extensively tested in a year-long trial with customers, the service which is targeted for multinational enterprises with branch offices will be available in 75 countries by the end of 2016.

Easy Go Network allows enterprises to instantly provision virtual network functions (VNF) for branch offices with full digital self-service ordering, customer care and reporting functions via a user-friendly portal. The service includes a plug-and-play router on site, eliminating truck rolls for more flexibility and rapid deployment. Network functions will now be available in minutes at any site.

At launch, Orange is offering application awareness running on a virtual, adaptive enterprise firewall based on Fortinet Security Fabric technology. The collaboration with Fortinet enables Easy Go Network to offer comprehensive, virtualized security functions, including unified application control, intrusion prevention, web content filtering, spyware prevention and malware defense.

Additional virtualized functions from selected vendors, including application optimization and WiFi management, are slated for launch in 2017. Offered under a month to-month contract, the service is on-demand and fully flexible with no upfront investment and no minimum revenue commitment.

Pierre-Louis Biaggi, vice president, Connectivity Business Unit at Orange Business Services
We are using an open-standards based approach to develop our SDN and NFV strategy, and we are planning to launch a universal CPE for larger sites next year. Our ultimate goal is an adaptive network, which we will bring to our customers within the next three years.
