SFR Business Team, a leading French provider of enterprise communications services, and Verizon, a leading provider of global communications and IT solutions, have been chosen by Veolia Environnement transform the company’s global communications infrastructure. The three-year contract covers 3,000 Veolia sites globally.

SFR Business Team and Verizon will offer Veolia a secure, high-capacity global communications network to link 140 key business sites in 33 countries, with integrated secure Internet and remote network access, and network optimisation services for best application performance.

The contract is part of Veolia’s two-year strategic restructure, announced by the company in December 2011, which aims to focus its efforts on added-value service solutions and technologies, with greater financial flexibility, to support future business growth. From the technology perspective, Veolia’s NewIT programme aims to simplify and streamline the company’s global technology infrastructure, with a particular focus on datacenters, workstations and networks.

By working with SFR Business Team and Verizon, Veolia Environnement will benefit from streamlined services – including integrated networks, convergent services, optimised processes and comprehensive customer service – offered worldwide. Both Verizon and SFR will work together to guarantee service quality for network management and reporting.

Veolia Environnement is the worldwide reference in environmental solutions. The company has operations all around the world and provides tailored solutions to meet the needs of municipal and industrial customers in three complementary segments: water management, waste management and energy management.

Announced in June 2012, the SFR and Verizon preferred partnership enables both companies to work together to provide global telecommunications solutions and support to companies based, or operating, in France. The preferred partnership calls for Verizon to provide global communications services, with SFR delivering the in-country network and information and communications technology elements of these services. SFR will likewise rely on Verizon to deliver global connectivity to SFR’s customers. This partnership is part of the Network Team Alliance created by SFR.
