Austin, Texas (June 18, 2009) -; Uplogix, the leading provider of remote network management automation, today announced its partnership with Orange Business Services.
The partnership will offer patented Uplogix solutions for management of hybrid networks into a wide variety of locations with Orange customers in government, military, energy, commercial, and maritime deployments. The solution expands quality of service and operational efficiency by automating routine management and recovery of remote sites.
“Orange understands the challenges and complexities of providing high quality distributed networks and is excited about the power of adding Uplogix solutions to our services,” said Michel Verbist, product manager, Satellite Solutions at Orange Business Services. “With Uplogix, we will be able to deliver an unmatched class of service for both traditional heterogeneous IP devices and RF communications equipment, to bring better business value to our hybrid network customers.”
Uplogix solutions deliver the local access and control of a console server, the in-depth monitoring and diagnostics of systems management software, and the intelligence of an on-site technician into a single, integrated platform. Appliances are deployed at edge of the network, including branch offices and datacenters, to maintain, configure, and autonomously fix routine IT infrastructure issues.
To trust the automation platform, security policies are enforced at all times with robust AAA (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting) — regardless of the state of the network.

“Our partnership with Orange demonstrates the value Uplogix brings to a managed services environment and the commitment of Orange to deliver richer, faster services to enhance their customers’ communications experience,” said Tom Goldman, Uplogix CEO.
