Project Background for Simmons & Simmons

Simmons & Simmons selected Orange Business Services as their provider of choice for the applications they wanted to use to run their business. This platform is based in multiple data centres on the European continent. Simmons & Simmons needed a reliable UK network partner who could deliver their data from multiple Network to Network interface points, and then build, operate and maintain a secure UK network infrastructure that would meet their present needs while being scalable and flexible enough to meet any future changes in demand.

Due to Simmons & Simmons’ use of different network providers between countries, it is important that their UK provider is carrier neutral; willing to work with and integrate connectivity with anyone on any platform. By leveraging our carrier and data centre neutrality, next connex were able to present Simmons & Simmons with a solution that gives them the level of control, resilence and network monitoring they desired.
