Strategic partnership will deliver cutting-edge WAN services to enterprises throughout the Middle East and Africa

Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Orixcom Limited, the fast-growing operator that provides next-generation connectivity and cloud services for the Middle East and Africa. This agreement will enable Orixcom to provide optimized, managed networking solutions for multinational customers with globally distributed offices.

The partnership provides Orixcom customers with a cloud-based alternative to traditional enterprise long-haul private networking solutions. Since Aryaka’s WAN as-a-Service portfolio is delivered as an on-demand SaaS service, enterprises can deploy a high-speed, private, secure, and scalable connection within minutes or hours, rather than weeks or months, as with traditional solutions.

Andrew Grenville, CEO and founder, Orixcom commented: “Due to market-based conditions across the MEA region, enterprises and other organizations frequently end up facing the challenges of high connectivity costs and protracted service delivery timelines. Aryaka allows us to establish enterprise-class connections in a fraction of the time it takes to deploy legacy solutions – and at a significantly lower TCO. We look forward to bringing these powerful benefits to enterprises across the region.”

The partnership also provides Orixcom with an extended global footprint, leveraging its own infrastructure assets within Aryaka’s global network of 25 distributed Points of Presence (POPs). Orixcom customers now have access to Aryaka’s dedicated L2 private core network, and accelerated access to data, applications, and cloud services in locations such as Hong Kong, Seoul, Johannesburg, Beijing, Bangalore and San Jose, to name but a few.

“We’re excited to welcome Orixcom as a strategic partner,” said Mark Fogel, VP of Global Service Provider Alliances for Aryaka. “As cloud computing and globalization continue to radically change how knowledge workers access important data and applications, enterprises need a WAN solution tailored to their specific needs, not one stuck in the dotcom era. What enterprises today need is a WAN service that is fast to deploy, affordable to use, and simple to maintain and manage. Aryaka’s Software-Defined WAN as-a-Service offers all of this via an on-demand delivery model, with no expensive equipment purchases, lengthy contract requirements, or complicated management and maintenance burdens. Our partnership with Orixcom will help us expand our presence within the strategically important MEA region.”
