Global Reach with Local Care

Can I build a global SD-WAN using just a single provider?

The challenge

According to recent surveys, 41% of businesses globally say they do business in countries outside their own. This means that, at many companies, network operations must be seen as a global task. Unfortunately, however, setting-up, managing and monitoring global networks 24/7 still remains highly complex. This also implies that many members of your IT department are tied up with time-consuming activities such as multi-provider management and incident resolution. In addition, the complexity of building global networks traditionally leads to a very slow roll-out of new sites, and limited flexibility in implementing change requests and network optimizations.

The solution

The ngena solution was developed to cope with these requirements. It offers you a global SD-WAN from a single source – your trusted local provider that is a member of the ngena alliance. This is possible because ngena has formed an alliance of 20+ leading telecommunication providers that offer their Ethernet and Internet access in around 200 territories worldwide to give your company truly global connectivity. Along with the strength of the global alliance comes the power of a global platform and a central portal that enables ngena alliance partners to design, order, set-up, monitor and maintain global SD-WANs with a click of a mouse. The use of innovative Network Virtualisation Functionality (NFV) and an end-to-end orchestration now allows global enterprise networks to be rolled out more quickly, and with greater flexibility to change or upgrade services in response to prevailing business needs.
