Orange Considers Africa Outsourcing after Big Deal with Ericsson

Orange may have recently terminated its beloved ‘Orange Wednesdays’, but the mobile network operator clearly has its eyes on a much bigger prize.

At the Mobile World Congress, Orange’s technical strategy director Yves Bellego announced that the company is considering offshoring with a move into Africa, shortly after the success of a major deal with Sweden’s Ericsson closed late last year.

The Ericsson contract was announced on the same day, and will cover five European markets where the Swedish multinational communications provider serves over 30 million customers.  The arrangement is expected to economically benefit both companies and improve service provided to customers in Spain, Belgium, Romania, Slovakia and Moldova.
