Case Study

KPN significantly lowers total
cost of ownership by
partnering with CloudBlue


KPN is a Dutch telecommunications company with an annual revenue of $8 billion. KPN’s global reach extends to markets in France, Germany, Belgium and the United States. The company offers a complete range of network services, including IP-VPN, E-Line, E-LAN, Corporate Internet, Managed Video Conferencing, International Private Line, Wavelength, IP Transit, Dark Fiber and more.


Like all telecom operators whose markets have been opened to competition, KPN is always looking for new revenue streams to help it stay competitive. This is just as important in the wholesale market as it is in retail, especially when it comes to cloud computing. KPN needed a platform to help it enable its network distributors, resellers and service providers to take advantage of the new business opportunities provided by cloud-based applications.


KPN selected CloudBlue as its preferred platform. The system features an application marketplace function that enables KPN’s distributors and resellers to provide private label cloud applications as a service, in addition to their own hosting services and KPN Wholesale’s telephony and internet access services.
