IPL: a reliable solution

IPL is a reliable solution to carry high bandwidth between two distant locations. It relies on last generation WDM/OTN networks. Depending on the sites to be connected, IPL can adapt to different topologies and include either a terrestrial submarine portion, or both. IPL offers flexibility and can adapt to different types of interfaces (Ethernet, OTU, SDH).


Orange’s network offers worldwide coverage

We have been an operator for international transmissions for a long time and we have a recognized expertise in both terrestrial and submarine networks.

With 100Tbps capacity between France and US, we are well positioned to answer end-to-end connectivity needs between the two continents.

New route on Dunant cable- Ashburn to Marseille 

We have built a new route on Dunant cable connecting  Ashburn (USA) to Marseille (France) to meet the exponential needs of data exchange between the US and Europe . It will bring you more redundancy avoiding connectivity hubs (Paris / London), low latency performance, and optimized lead time to delivery thanks to POP to POP configuration. This route carries our International Private Line (IPL) solution to provide your customers with high security and high scalable bandwidth with 10G, 100G and soon 400G.
Discover the video to learn more about this new route's benefits.

Tailored protection options

IPL relies on point-to-point architecture. Sometimes, the service can be affected by exceptional circumstances such as fiber cut, fire or even fiber damage from mice. When your business needs are vital, you cannot allow service interruptions. Orange has three protection options: Protection 1+1, Dynamic Restoration and Extended Protection. These options are available on both WDM and OTN network. The new Dynamic Restoration and Extended Protection options are also available for 100G service. Find the one fitting your needs the best! 
Watch the video to understand how the three options work.

Our customers' testimonials

Dan Pitts
Senior Manager for Network Planning at Intelsat

We contracted with Orange for a 10 Gb International Private Line to interconnect Europe and Asia. This helps Intelsat’s traffic flow more efficiently between these two locations and contributes to a more efficient global network. Moreover, on the route from Frankfurt to Singapore, Orange had the most cost effective solution.
