Most traditional networks are not flexible when it comes to using different types of access, and are unable to use hybrid access technology to better suit real customer needs. Especially in smaller branch offices, in which a simple Internet VPN would be a much better choice, MPLS access is often oversized and too expensive. And when it comes to quickly and flexibly connecting remote branch offices, traditional networks are often too cumbersome, requiring months to get a new connection up and running.
ngena offers a free choice of different access designs that can be easily combined and tailored to individual purpose for different use cases. Multiple types of accesses are supported on a single platform providing a consistent set of services, including both Internet Public Line (IPL) and Ethernet Private Line (EPL) using Metro Ethernet or Layer-2 VPN technologies. Also, mobile broadband can be used for connecting customer locations as mobile links provide public Internet connectivity. Several access designs are available for connecting a customer site via single or redundant Internet or Ethernet links, or a combination of both. The access designs can be chosen based on bandwidth and SLA requirements, as well as cost considerations. The VPN overlay and encryption are common to all access designs. In the future, ngena will also be able to use SD-WAN over MPLS and satellite connections to offer an even wider range of access technologies to fulfill different requirements of your enterprise networks.
