ngena is a global alliance of leading telcos that combine their networks to form a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and control it with cloud technologies. Deutsche Telekom is a founding member of the alliance.
Patrick Molck-Ude, responsible for network business for Deutsche Telekom’s corporate customers, says:
"Corporate customers need strong and secure global lines that they can manage flexibly. And they want to connect new company sites quickly. That's the new baseline for every international carrier, and with our software-defined network, we have our fingers on the pulse of our customers' needs."
Marcus Hacke, founder and Managing Director at ngena, says:
"Our global platform combines the advantages of ultramodern SD-WAN architecture with our alliance partners' local services. Based on Cisco's SD WAN portfolio, which already incorporates Viptela's leading technology completely, business customers get ultramodern software-defined wide area networks that are easier to operate, flexible to administer, scale seamlessly and are available more quickly."
