Which service partners are on board from the start?
Even prior to the official market launch, ngena partners are active in major regions of the globe : USA, Asia and Europe. The original partners include CenturyLink, a major fiber operator in the US; Reliance Jio, which is building a legacy-free, end-to-end network covering 18,000 cities in India; SK Telecom, South Korea’s largest telecom operator; and Deutsche Telekom, the leading European telecommunication provider. We have carefully selected this initial group of partners and will expand it significantly over the months to come.
What partners will ngena collaborate with?
ngena is building an alliance of the world’s leading telecommunication companies. Each company has a unique positioning in its region and vast experience with enterprise customers. Through these partnerships, ngena clients profit from a global network that is not just secure, but also easy and flexible to setup.
When will ngena’s services and products be available?
Currently, ngena is in the process of building a global alliance. Our goal is to offer customers products and services by Q1/Q2 of 2017.
In which countries will ngena initially be available?
ngena paves the way for a truly globalized economy. Customers of ngena partners are multinational enterprises, which explains why ngena will offer global services from the very beginning.
How will ngena provide its services?
ngena’s portfolio is a wholesale offer for partners. End customers deal directly with the relevant alliance partner who, through access services, provides end-to-end connectivity to its customers. In addition to different forms of connectivity, such as an Ethernet connection, services like security and application management are available as add-ons. The offers are modular in design and highly standardized. Predefined application program interfaces (API) allow partners to provide own services.
How does ngena differ from other alliances in the telecommunications sector?
ngena differs in many ways from other alliances. First, ngena is an independent legal entity with its own management and profit strategy, making it interesting for independent investors. Second, ngena acts as a wholesale organization between the partners. ngena is not a consortium, but a market-oriented enterprise, a fact that benefits every single partner. Finally, ngena will create its own platform and will use SDN technology. This approach goes far beyond existing concepts.
