Orange’s ability to provide services, networking and security on a global scale is a key component of the partnership. Rio Tinto required a service provider who could supply improved flexibility and agility to support its dynamic global business model and was looking for operational cost savings.
“Orange’s global capabilities deliver considerable value to Rio Tinto,” said Scott Singer, head of Global Business Services, Rio Tinto. “Over the past decade, Orange’s technology and service solutions have supported our divestment and acquisition activities. We look forward to continuing to work with them to support our growth program, especially in developing nations where we will leverage Orange’s far reaching network capabilities.”
