The deal follows the bank’s move to its new London headquarters in the City and will provide services for 700 employees.
Orange said the Cisco-based deployment would give the bank long-term cost efficiencies, with the future-proofed communications platform providing an enhanced level of service for employees.
“As a leading financial services group, expanding our customer base and providing more customer-focused products and services are key objectives for us,” said Gary Biggerstaff of Sumitomo Mitsui.
“The Lan provided by Orange Business Services will help us achieve these objectives, as a secure, cost-effective network will allow our staff to stay connected at all times.”
Like most mobile operators, Orange is looking to extend the business it generates from fixed-line connections.
