Many companies are under great pressure to cut costs and optimize their investments in CAPEX and OPEX. At the same time, bandwidth demand is continually rising especially due to new Cloud and IoT applications and an increasing level of digitalization. Companies are therefore seeking new technologies that can increase their network performance while simultaneously keeping down their costs.
Today’s SD-WAN technologies already come with significant cost advantages if set up correctly. The ngena solution was built, in particular, to further optimize your enterprise’s network performance, and help you save money. As ngena offers cost-efficient hybrid Ethernet and Internet access, we estimate you can save 20% and more, just by replacing high cost MPLS lines with a cheaper access mix, i.e. a truly hybrid network. Moreover, the available bandwidth in ngena’s networks is typically higher because of an »active-active« vs. traditional »active-standby/ backup« network designs, which means you can almost double your useable bandwidth without doubling cost. Compared with classical MPLS solutions, SD-WAN comes with additional functions at no or low additional cost: for example, you can retire expensive hardware devices for security or network visibility solutions and replace them with Virtual Network Functions instead. As ngena’s solution is a fully-managed service, our SD-WAN-as-a-Service approach can help your company slash its operating costs by allowing your IT staff to concentrate on more urgent business needs, rather than managing the technical configuration of your network – which is then taken care of by ngena and its alliance partners. Overall, we estimate that, with the ngena solution, your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can be cut by 30% and more.
