Orange Business Services Renews Next-Generation Telecoms Service Contract in Lebanon

Capabilities of Broadband Network and IPTV Services for Beirut Central District Showcased at the “Smart Connected Life in BCD” Exhibition in Beirut Souks

Orange Business Services and Solidere, the Lebanese real estate company for the development and reconstruction of the Beirut Central District, have renewed and enhanced a five-year telecoms infrastructure contract.

Both companies showcased the network and associated applications to the corporate, business and residential customers in the district during an exhibition held from February 17-19 at the Beirut Souks.

For the past five years, Solidere has been delivering an on-demand IPTV channel service in its flagship development in Beirut, offering a range of movies, sports and TV programs that stream directly to residents’ TVs over the market-leading, broadband network, which Orange designed, built, and operates on behalf of Solidere.

Mounir Douaidy, General Manager, Solidere, said: “Thanks to Solidere’s state-of-the-art infrastructure and the knowledge and expertise of Orange Business Services, we continue offering next-generation telecommunications services in Beirut Central District as part of our high profile real estate developments, meaning our customers enjoy the best and the most advanced IP-based, on-demand telecoms services in the world.”

The renewed contract includes a new Orange call center management solution for Solidere that will enable the delivery of superior customer service with fewer resources. Orange is providing Solidere a flexible solution that virtualizes the contact center infrastructure and brings features that serves their customers better, including achieving shorter call waiting times and much less call abandonment.

“For customers like Solidere, Orange Business Services offers a unique combination of technological and operational expertise combined with proven experience in Smart City development,” said Jean-Luc Lasnier, Sales and Marketing Vice President – Emerging Markets & Indirect, Orange Business Services. “With local knowledge and international capabilities, Orange Business Service brings together a world-class IP network and innovative solutions needed to create state-of-the-art Smart City infrastructure and ICT services, including home automation, unified communications, video services (such as on-demand, IPTV and conferencing), and M2M solutions for remote monitoring and smart metering in the areas of eHealth and eGovernment, among others.“

At its launch in 2008, the IPTV service was one of the first of its kind available on a commercial basis in the Middle East, and the network was the first to support broadcast and on-demand HDTV. At the time, the new service was integrated into a Solidere-operated private broadband network that had been designed and installed by Orange in 2006.
