Yesterday, at day 2 of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the local business unit of Deutsche Telekom Group in Iberia announced it will offer T-System’s software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) service “Smart SD-WAN powered by ngena” to its customers in Spain. The signing ceremony took place at the Deutsche Telekom booth in Hall 3M31 and was attend by (from left to right) Miguel Ángel Sánchez del Pilar, Head of Telecomunications Solutions & Services of T-Systems Iberia; Rosa María Rodríguez, VP Sales of T-Systems Iberia; Marcus Hacke, Founder and Managing Director of ngena; Osmar Polo, Managing Director of T-Systems Iberia; Alessandro Adriani, Managing Director of ngena; Lars Schütt, Head of Partner Management at ngena.
T-System Iberia’s customers will now benefit from consistent SD-WAN-based data connectivity services on a global scale, improving their network performance with higher agility, flexibility and security. The Next Generation Enterprise Network Alliance (ngena – www.ngena.net) currently consists of 17 leading international telecommunications providers – of which Deutsche Telekom is one of the founding members – offering SD-WAN coverage in approximately 200 countries and regions worldwide.
ngena allows enterprises to benefit from consistent data connectivity services, combining the networks of alliance partners to one global Software-Defined Network (SDN). The architecture is based on shared local network assets as an underlay and an end-to-end managed hybrid SD-WAN VPN as an overlay. It uses latest cloud and virtualization technologies from ngena’s strategic technology partner Cisco/Viptela. Based on this technology, enterprise customers of the alliance members benefit from global corporate networks which are secure, stable, scalable and easy to use. Thanks to the alliance model and ecosystem, they can rely on local care capabilities of the alliance members.
The agreement was signed at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which is currently being held in Barcelona. The ceremony took place at the stand of Deutsche Telekom Group (3M31), where Osmar Polo, Managing Director of T-Systems Iberia, Miguel Ángel Sánchez, Head of Telecomunications Solutions & Services of T-Systems Iberia, Marcus Hacke, Founder and Managing Director of ngena, and Alessandro Adriani, Managing Director of ngena, welcomed T-Systems Iberia to the alliance.
“For T-Systems Iberia, it is a great step forward to now being able to offer our customers a next generation network that delivers greater scalability and flexibility in their processes,” says Osmar Polo, who also highlights the importance of services that can be set up with a click of a button.
Alessandro Adriani and Marcus Hacke from ngena commented: “We are happy to see the Iberian part of our founding member Deutsche Telekom now also offering our global network services to their customers in Spain. We believe that their enterprise customers will benefit massively from the flexibility and reliability that our software-defined network delivers.”
In an increasingly connected world with an exponential growth of data volume, networks such as the one deployed by ngena offer an optimal solution for many companies. T- Systems Iberia is now ready to respond to its customer’s ever-growing demands.
