Our Unique Selling Points

What are the main USPs which distinguish the ngena SD-WAN service from other offerings on the market?

The challenge

Today, there is a bewilderingly diverse range of SDN solutions on the market. Almost every telco and even many System Integrators claim to be able to deliver SD-WAN services to their customers. But when you look at the details, you often find huge differences in their offerings: some providers just offer hardware, and customers need to manage the networks themselves. Others just offer an SD-WAN overlay to your existing legacy networks, increasing complexity and maybe even costs. And almost all available solutions on the market fail to deliver a fully-managed service that includes connectivity and comes with a truly global reach.

The solution

ngena provides a fully-managed SD-WAN-as-a-Service that is available via ngena’s global platform and backbone as well as our alliance partners’ local access networks in 200 territories worldwide. We have developed a seamless process for building a Wide Area Network in an automated manner and delivering every necessary component to you as a customer, thereby eliminating your burden of having to operate a complex network yourself. From designing the solution and connecting the access lines (Ethernet or Internet), through to the logistical processes of setting up the CPE at your local offices; or from additional services, such as security features, WAN optimization services or network monitoring, through to handling degradations and incidents: every step of building and running a global SD-WAN can be handed over entirely to ngena and their partners.

As nearly all steps are fully automated using a zero-touch process via ngena’s central portal, we reduce the complexity to deliver a ready-to-use global network to your company. These are key selling points of ngena’s service which differs significantly from all other solutions on the market.
Your company will enjoy a secure, stable, scalable and easy-to-use global corporate network that comes with a high-quality local customer care.

Your benefits

  • Compared with SD-WAN infrastructure providers that only deliver the WAN edge equipment and let your company design and run the network on your own, ngena offers you a fully-managed SD-WAN service, along with end-to-end operation of your company network. ngena’s services come with a global backbone and local access lines, CPEs delivered to your offices, a leading SD-WAN overlay providing full encryption of data, a control plane and much more. Cloud Connect services and multiple Virtual Network Functions are available, too.
  • Compared with SD-WAN service providers that just manage the SDN-related overlay of a network, but not the underlay, ngena offers both: the network’s overlay and underlay. This combination radically simplifies the administration of your global network that can be easily managed and monitored via ngena’s central portal.
  • Compared with the offers typically made by system integrators, ngena’s services are not project driven, re-inventing the wheel for every customer over and over again. On the contrary, ngena’s SD-WAN-as-a-Service solution is delivered from a global platform with highly standardized and fully automated services that are faster to implement and more cost-efficient.
  • Compared with the offers made by regional telco providers, ngena’s services are truly global, as we integrate all the alliance partners’ local networks into a single SDN that is available in 200 territories around the globe.
  • Compared with globally managed SD-WAN service providers, ngena comes with a unique combination of a) an innovative alliance’s operating model, b) the integration of all partners’ local networks into a single global SD-WAN, c) the use of latest Cisco/Viptela technology and an end-to-end automated service orchestration, d) a central portal supporting all business and operational processes. All with the aim of increasing your business agility.
  • Unlike all other solutions, ngena offers a fully-managed SD-WAN-as-a-Service that provides you with all the components needed to run your global network. You order the network with one of our alliance partners, and we run it for you on a global scale and with high-quality local customer care.
ngena’s fully managed SD-WAN solution is truly unique on the market. The combination of a strong global alliance, innovative Cisco/Viptela technology and the best SD-WAN experts form a proposition that is unrivalled in the industry.”
