The Norwegian state oil corporation Statoil has signed a £6.4m international network infrastructure and IP comms contract with Orange Business Services.

The Norwegian state oil corporation Statoil has signed a £6.4m international network infrastructure and IP comms contract with Orange Business Services.

The three year deal extends a comms supplier relationship which started in 1999, and will see the network upgraded. The contract includes an annual renewal option for three additional years.

The agreement covers 40 sites in 23 countries worldwide. The upgraded network will handle both data and telephony and will see carrier-class Ethernet and fibre links established to improve access to business apps.

As a result, some existing satellite links will be replaced to improve connectivity.

Ole Petter Drange, head of infrastructure at Statoil, said, “We expect delivery times for new connections to be minimised.”
