ngena @ home

Supporting clients in time of unprecedented business disruption

Next to the huge impact of suddenly working from home and needing to provide ad-hoc collaboration, training and support for handling the social and emotional aspects there is a simple technical challenge SD-WAN as a Service can resolve it.

74% of CFO’s interviewed intend to shift some employees to remote work permanently even after the crisis **

** Gartner:

The new ngena@home is the extension of seamless networking

Extending the existing VPN centric approach with a fully automated SD-WAN aaS, based on Cisco technologies and inclusive of local implementation, remote support and OPEX financing. Following a straight- forward color-coded installation, supported with a video walkthrough, users can connect at home as if they are working in the office.​

We provide a solution that is easy to use, comes with installation and financing and can be tried before committing to larger scale-outs as we will follow a “per site” logic for all our network extensions.​

Remote worker implementation without changing end-user devices, collaboration solutions, network configurations, security, access control and/ or applications. Without the need to implement server farms, VDI or remote desktop solutions. No need to re-train users, suffer performance impact or having to centralize internet traffic and enterprise network congestion. ​
