Networks can be quickly modernised with SD-WAN, meaning that users benefit from reliability, manageability and security. SD-WAN supports a mixture of on-premise and cloud solutions, particularly in hybrid IT strategies.

“When we advise our clients on future-proof solutions for their digital transformation, customer networks are always a central aspect. Enterprises have great demands for connectivity and capacity, but need an easy and efficient method for using and operating the network. We are delighted to be able to add a fully managed SD-WAN ngena solution, based on the technology of our long-standing partner, Cisco, to our portfolio”, says Michael Guschlbauer, COO, IT Systems Integration & Managed Services, Bechtle AG.
