Orange Business Services helps improve communication [Bizcommunity (South Africa)]
(Bizcommunity (South Africa) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) In an effort to improve communication between the Russian headquarters of Nordgold and the company's Lefa mine in Guinea and the Bissa and Taparko mines in Burkina Faso in West Africa, Orange Business Services is now providing secure satellite VPN services.
Due to its rapid business growth in Africa, Nordgold needed to modernize its data channels to improve communication between sites while benefiting from a high level of network security, quality of service, an optimal price and the ability to prioritize traffic, especially video conferencing and voice over IP.
To connect Nordgold's satellite stations - two in Burkina Faso and one in Guinea - Orange's satellite teleport in France was used, coupled with a high-speed optical communication link with the Russian Orange network and the customer's infrastructure. The implementation was supported by Orange Business Services experts from the Middle East and Africa.
"Nordgold adopts best practices for managing business processes at all its plants, and this also means daily interaction with the company management," said Sergey Zinkovich, CFO of Nordgold. "The contract with Orange, a global provider of telecommunications services, guaranteed us a prompt and reliable integration of African units into Nordgold's existing corporate infrastructure."
