Axian Group is a pan African group that operates in 9 countries and specializes in 5 industries with high growth potential; namely telecoms, financial services, real estate, energy and Open innovation & Fintech.

In 2004, Axian Group began its telecom venture in Madagascar and this sector of the group first expanded internationally in 2015. Axian Telecom specializes in mobile and fixed operations, infrastructure operations, and digital services development.

A trusted one-stop shop delivering quality services

In their expansion towards becoming a pan-African group, Axian Telecom needed a provider who has a strong presence in the countries they newly operate in. According to Stéphane Oudin, CEO of Axian Telecom, “Orange Wholesale International provides the best quality with the best price in such a competitive market.” The services Axian Telecom use with us are voice interconnection, mobile services, IP transit and most recently, cybersecurity professional services.

Cybersecurity as a business differentiator in Africa

Orange and Axian Telecom began their cybersecurity partnership last year. It has been instrumental in allowing Axian to demonstrate added-value and differentiation amongst their competitors locally and globally. Orange Wholesale International, supported by Orange Cyberdefense, the Orange group affiliate specialized in cybersecurity solutions, audited Axian’s operations in Madagascar and its affiliates in Comoros and Togo. Stéphane Oudin says, “Overall, we are very satisfied with the security services Orange provide. The solution will allow us to protect large operations over all of Axian’s affiliates.”

As Axian Telecom continues to strengthen their presence in Africa, Stéphane Oudin adds: “We are looking forward for new services Orange may provide in the future that could definitely help us in our development in new markets we operate in.”
