BEST GLOBAL NETWORK
To address the strong growth in international telecommunication traffic and in a highly competitive market, Orange is maintaining its level of investment in submarine cables and is continuing to develop its network in order to meet the needs of its customers. As a major player in international “information highways”, our global network footprint now connects more than 450 Points of Presence with continuous development growth in 2021. We also provide an extensive and unique network of 450,000 kilometers of submarine cables operated directly or in partnership through our involvement in more than 40 consortiums covering various routes: North Atlantic, Caribbean, Europe-Asia, Europe-Africa. Since early 2021, we have put in service, extended, or announced 7 new generation submarine cables: Dunant led by Google, AMITIE, SEA-ME-WE-5, SEA-ME-WE-6, PEACE, ACE and 2 AFRICA. And of course, more projects are under construction for this year.
BEST INNOVATIVE MOBILITY PROVIDER
The services we provide rely on our broad expertise in terms of innovation, Business Intelligence, Big Data technology and analysis. We also take advantage of our unique footprint made up of 26 retail operations to test and build, using a design thinking methodology. This is the perfect way to understand and meet their expectations. By better understanding roamers' behavior, our customers can better negotiate their own wholesale agreements. They can then adapt their existing retail plans to increase their customers' use of roaming data or identify specific roamer behaviors. We are also planning to include machine learning algorithms to detect M2M traffic
