International Carriers’ activity

Orange’s International Carriers activity is based on a major longdistance network infrastructure and offers a broad range of solutions on the international market.

Its presence in both the retail and wholesale markets means it can develop wholesale solutions that are particularly well adapted to the needs of the retail operators. Orange has more than 1,000 customers, which include fixed-line and mobile operators and Internet access, content and OTT providers.

The Orange group is unique in that it is very involved in the design, construction and operation of submarine cables. With its ownership or co-ownership of several submarine cable systems, the Group ranks among the world’s largest owners of submarine lines. This has enabled it to satisfy the increase in transatlantic traffic.


The Group’s wholesale activity counts:

  • A seamless global network and an IPX protocol network supporting voice and data with presence points around the world;
  • A global network of dedicated IP routes with end users in more than 220 countries, connections to more than 200 Internet service providers, and connectivity in over 100 countries in a single IP network hop (Autonomous System);
  • 99.99% network availability, 24 / 7 centralized network supervision.

The volume of voice traffic in the International Carriers business grew 3.7% in 2015, and there was also a sustained increase in data traffic.
