Orange Business Services to support Nexans’ IoT solution deployments worldwide

Published on February 18th, 2021

Nexans has signed a partnership agreement with Orange Business Services to deliver the global IoT (Internet of Things) connectivity crucial for the major expansion of Nexans’ asset tracking and IoT solutions.

The partnership enables the creation of a comprehensive IoT ecosystem to support customers throughout their journey as Nexans continues its progress from cable supplier to complete service provider.

The focus is the extension of the Nexans connected products program that provides customers with real-time information on the location of their cables, helping to reduce theft and loss, and increase recycling. Nexans has pledged to connect 25% of its products by 2024. Nexans digital solutions will bring real-time information, reliability and efficiency to its customers.

Christopher Guerin, CEO of Nexans says, “Our partnership with Orange Business Services brings leading edge IoT solutions to Nexans customers. Our plans is to create a disruptive IoT ecosystem to amplify Nexans solutions anywhere in the world thanks to Orange Business Services’ worldwide coverage.”

Orange Business Services provides Nexans with global connectivity for its IoT devices at a fraction of the cost involved in arranging agreements with different network providers. Nexans connected solutions are thus equipped with an Orange international SIM card, which transmits data quickly, efficiently and securely to the Nexans platform, via the Orange global mobile network.

Helmut Reisinger, CEO of Orange Business Services, adds, “We are very proud to accompany Nexans in its digitalisation journey which also includes a major effort on sustainability. Thanks to our IoT and smart mobility expertise and in particular to the global connectivity that we provide, we are helping Nexans to digitalise and connect its smart solutions. The result will be a better, smarter and greener logistics supply chain, which will create added value for customers.”

The Nexans IoT ecosystem will expand to provide customers with a single IoT platform that provides a complete, seamless overview of a broad range of services leveraging on connected cables, connected accessories and cabinets, as well as connected cabling systems.
