In providing our global service, our alliance partners share their individual local networks with us to form a globally available transport network, while ngena provides a state-of-the-art, end-to-end managed SD-WAN which runs on top of that shared infrastructure.
In this context, it is only our partners who market hybrid VPN solutions “powered by ngena” to their enterprise customers around the world; ngena, by contrast, acts as a central instance between our partners in a wholesale model, and does not sell directly to end-customers.
This unparalleled combination of competences and roles is the basis of our unique business model which allows alliance partners to save time, effort and money by avoiding heavy investments in their own network infrastructures.
„We are proud to work with some of the most respected telecommunication providers in the world. These include incumbents as well as challengers which have chosen to market SD-WAN solutions powered by ngena. With their experience and reputation, these trusted entities stand for innovative, best value for money ICT offerings. Our service is helping them to fulfill this role in the quickly growing SD-WAN market. A strong alliance like this is truly unique!”
ngena subdivides its alliance partners in two categories: A-End and B-End Partners. Alliance partners may assume both roles – A-End and B-End – simultaneously.
Partners in their A-End role offer SD-WAN “powered by ngena” services to their enterprise customers and are responsible for managing customers’ requests. They take down customers’ requirements so that these can be transformed into appropriate SD-WAN solutions. The ngena central portal is their single interface for designing and calculating SD-WAN solutions “powered by ngena”. It also lets them monitor and manage proactively the performance of their customers’ network and deliver world-class, local customer care.
Partners in a B-End role provide network access services to customer sites. They lease these services out to ngena, but are responsible for the necessary field service and for SLA fulfillment.
